GBU Season 2, Episode 3 – The Emperor’s New Groove

It’s Oscar season 2019, so naturally we chose to discuss an under-performing Disney film from the year 2000 on this week’s episode of the podcast. But that’s not all…

We wanted to record this episode a week ago, but Kayleigh and I were both busy. The plan had been to discuss Stanley Kubrick’s Barry Lyndon, Hirokazu Koreeda’s Shoplifters, and Mark Dindal’s The Emperor’s New Groove, and for the most part that’s what we wound up doing, although Jon and I didn’t finish Barry Lyndon in one sitting because I bitched out at the intermission. I’m glad we also got to touch on Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse in this episode, and because my procrastination pushed it so near the 91st Academy Awards, we got to vent about that as well.

I don’t know why I don’t have as much to say about these shows in the notes these days. I need to think more in advance about what interesting things happen surrounding the recording, or share some photos of my notes or something. Actually, here’s one. This is what the were busting my balls over at the start of the episode:

Thanks for listening as always, and if you’re not subscribed, we’d love to have you on-board. If I’ve got the budget in my upload allotment with Libsyn this month, I’ll drop another Classic episode as well. We’ll see, because this one was looong!

Follow me on Twitter @GBUpodcast and if you really want to help us out, you can rate and review the show on Apple Podcasts or your podcatcher of choice. The very best thing you can do for us besides that is to tell a friend! And if you want to e-mail me at or tweet me your thoughts, we’d love that sort of audience interaction to discuss on the show. Write us something neat and we’ll read it on-air!

You can find the music used here and an awful lot more at Death’s Dynamic Shroud’s Bandcamp page. And here’s a fun interview with them! And here’s a review of an album of theirs!
