GBU Season 2, Episode 9 – Climax

Well, it’s been a while since we’ve recorded a new episode! I wrongly said on the show that the most recent one had been with Sleepy Hollow with Cea, when in fact it had been The Rocketeer with Jon and Kayleigh. I think I just blocked that one from my memory because it was such a bad time. I mean really, you can hear it on the recording, it was just a bad time.

You know what else is a bad time? The first several days after you watch Gaspar Noé’s 2018 film Climax.

GBU Season 2, Episode 8: The Rocketeer

This was an awkward recording and you can hear it in every cringy moment on-mic. I thought about pretending that wasn’t the case, but in the spirit of living up to the Candid Podcast name (which means less than nothing, by the way) I figure, let’s just come out and acknowledge it.

GBU Season 2, Episode 7: Sleepy Hollow

Let’s try this again.

GBU Season 2, Episode 1: The Grinch

I had big podcasting ambitions about five years ago. I was still in my mid-twenties and hadn’t yet begun to panic about the likelihood of any of my amorphous dreams coming true. Then, more than anytime since, I was afflicted with this feeling that I could somehow hope myself into success.

GBU 23 – IT

IT.jpg

Here’s another belated post for an episode we did some time ago, but now we’re all caught up! We discuss part one of the remake of Stephen King’s IT, directed by Andy Muschietti and starring a bunch of kids alongside Bill Skarsgård. We have a special guest, and it’s all-in-all one of our best shows.

I’ll just spoil for you all that we didn’t make the cut-off for our Spooktacular Halloween episode this year. Sorry! But we’re still planning to get our Christmas episode out, and our next catch-up episode, recording soon, will include some of the horror stuff we were watching in anticipation of that Spooktacular.
