Episode 224 - HIGH FIDELITY

High Fidelity is anchored by the conceit of three dudes swapping sarcastic jokes while obsessing over pop culture and the past - obviously, something we know very little about. 

Andy Kim makes his podcasting debut (with a bullet!) to talk about this chronicle of heartbreak - and the road back to redemption - in what's sure to become one of our all time, top-five episodes about charmingly acerbic record store owners in romantic crisis.

High Fidelity (2000)
Directed by Stephen Frears
Written by D. V. DeVincentis, Steve Pink, John Cusack, and Scott Rosenberg
Based on the novel by Nick Hornby
Starring John Cusack, Iben Hjejle, Jack Black, Todd Louiso, Lisa Bonet, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Joan Cusack, Sara Gilbert, Lili Taylor, Joelle Carter, and Tim Robbins

Apollo 13 (1995)
Directed by Ron Howard
Written by William Broyles Jr. and Al Reinert
Based on the book Lost Moon by Jim Lovell and Jeffrey Kluger
Starring Tom Hanks, Kevin Bacon, Bill Paxton, Gary Sinise, Kathleen Quinlan, and Ed Harris

'Tis the season for giving, and this year we're gifting listeners an entire bracket of Peanuts holiday specials! Charles Schulz's pals have celebrated a lot since their first iconic Christmas special. But has that initial outing ever been surpassed? Can elaborate paper valentines or dancing Easter beagles hold a candle to sadly slumping Christmas trees? And what the heck is a "Great Pumpkin" anyway?

And after we unpack these questions with special guest Brian Rudloff, we'll also unwrap real presents in this jam-packed, carefully-wrapped, ho ho holly, multi-holiday smorgasbord. Good grief!

Peanuts TV specials featured in this episode:

A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965)
It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (1966)
A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving (1973)
It's the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown (1974)
Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown (1975)
It's Arbor Day, Charlie Brown (1976)
Happy New Year, Charlie Brown! (1986)
It's Christmastime Again, Charlie Brown (1992)

It's time for another Thanksgiving twin bill, and this year we're getting gluttonous with Gremlins and Gremlins 2: The New Batch. We're celebrating the sensibility of Joe Dante as he and his collaborators hurl a hearty 'nyah-nyah' at cherished American institutions from Christmas to capitalism.
