GBU Season 2, Episode 15: Lake Mungo

I forgot to post this before. Whoops. We talk about the scariest movie I’ve seen since It Follows, the enigmatic and deeply sad Lake Mungo, directed by a man no one seems to know how to find, and starring a bunch of wonderful actors you’ve never heard of, which is what makes them such great fits for this sort of film.

Thanks for stopping over to the blog. We’d love it if you shared the show with your friends if you like what we do.

GBU Season 2, Episode 14: The VVitch

The VVitch: A New-England Folktale (2015)

I’m excited to finally get this thing recorded and released, and I’m even more excited to announce that I seem to have identified and resolved the issue of audio interference that has plagued a couple of our recent episodes. It seems to have been caused by some electrical cables being intertwined with the XLRs connecting our mics to the audio interface.

GBU Season 2, Episode 13: Joker

It’s a Joker movie! It’s called Joker! Directed by Todd Phillips and starring Joaquin Phoenix, Robert De Niro, Frances Conroy, Zazie Beetz, and Brett Cullen, this movie was a movie.

I don’t have much to say about this episode, except that the buzz came back which I’m not pleased about, and we may have committed an audio sin after the episode by trying more random snacks from the Asian grocery down the street.

GBU Season 2, Episode 10: It: Chapter Two

This movie sucked. It’s a sequel to another bad movie we covered two years ago.

Jon, Mike and I saw It: Chapter 2 this weekend, and did some podcasting about it. I’m afraid something funny is going on between our headphones and the headphone amplifier I use. I don’t know if it’s the amp or the 3.5mm to 1/4″ adapters I’m using, but things are very finnicky.

I want to address something I said on the show and am still debating with myself about going back and removing if I can. I don’t feel good about the way I described the character Beverly’s abuse at the hand of her father. Content warning about that sort of thing before I continue.

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.

My friend Cea came into town and brought with her a copy of Tim Burton’s Sleepy Hollow, starring Johnny Depp, Christina Ricci, and half the cast of Harry Potter. Based on the short story, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, by Washington Irving, this adaptation was a movie! From the early 2000s!We watched it, and had opinions!
