In our second episode (controversially titled Episode 1) the Dudebros struggle manfully through Conor’s asthma (Not mentioned in the episode), hunger, and a discussion of terrifying old ladies. We also talk about Robert Aldrich, some stuff we brought to the table, and book to movie adaptations.

Time Stamps

Section 1 (00:00) Intro and our Director in Focus, Robert Aldrich.

Section 2 (25:33) Our film noir series continues with a look at Double Indemnity.

Section 3 (41:50) Table Time with The Martian Chronicles and Vengeance.

Section 4 (51:22) Question Time. This week Luke asked Conor what was his favourite pizza topping, and what happened next was astounding. (Astounding is probably a bit of a strong word.)
