This show was long overdue. I’ve done some reckoning with myself about how I am living my life, and have decided to make more time for things which fulfill me creatively, including and especially the podcast. So I hope to declare an end to the drought of content.
My mother makes her first-ever cameo on this show. We try a new segment on for size, called Brian, Why? And, we explore Adam’s ever-evolving sexual journey!
GBU’s back, baby, with a movie that was new last month!
We tried to get this recorded when the film was still fairly fresh, but we couldn’t make it work over the internet (what else is new?) so first-time guest and never-time podcast listener Rob pitched the idea of recording in person, since we’re all vaccinated now.
We’re recording Mortal Kombat this coming Friday, 7 May 2021. In the meantime here are two bullshit episodes. And if you already listened to the MayDay update, I apologize; it needed some audio reworking. Incidentally, I also just purchased an echo removal plugin I can’t wait to use on real episodes of the show.

Well, we’re officially in over our heads here. We didn’t even manage to touch the plot of The End of Evangelion, and somehow we managed to fill an over-stuffed episode anyway. We get pretty philosophical this time around.
I give up trying to figure out episode numbers for this “season”. I may have to go back at some point and just re-number them all from scratch.
This episode’s first half will be a GBU test of loyalty, I’m sure, because the issue of the accusation against legendary director Woody Allen is something that everyone thinks they know about, and if they think they do, they don’t want to be on the wrong side of it. But I encourage you to approach this essay (documentary) by Ricky Worley with an open mind.
Well, here we are, back for a new round of Spooktacular podcasting! We couldn’t fit in both of the movies we really wanted to, so stay tuned for Satoshi Kon’s Perfect Blue in the next couple of days.
Takashi Miike’s Audition and Perfect Blue were suggestions from listener Eric, the first listener to ever write in to the show (which you can do as well by e-mailing me at Brian@Candidpodcast.com). Audition wound up being pretty divisive, and I think we forgot to actually talk about the plot for possibly the first time ever on the show. Whoops! Maybe we try and do a better job of it on the Perfect Blue episode!
I said I would plug Jon’s Twitch presence where he DJs, and that’s exactly what I’m going to do:
