    Surprisingly, “Head of the Family” is actually available on Netflix but “Blue Collar” is not.

    I forget how I found this podcast, and I’ve never found an effective way to pitch it to any of my friends. “They watch a bad movie, and then they talk about it afterward…no really, it’s funny. No you can’t see the movie while they talk about it, it’s just audio. Seriously. Oh, sure, just walk away when I’m talking to you, homeless man on the street”.

  3. Dan McCoy says:

    And homeless men are our key demographic!

  4. wiggie says:

    Well, obviously not homeless women, with all Stewart’s slightly sexist comments.

    Love going back in time with these! Hearing Chris Pratt being described as “professionally oafy” is not something I expected, but of course at the time…
