Episode 210 - THE PRINCESS DIARIES

Tabloids schmabloids, we're obsessed with the most wholesome royal drama ever in The Princess Diaries, a heartwarming coming-of-age tale about hidden pasts and found identity. It's a movie that wears its earnest heart on its sleeve while giving younger millennials their own enlightened update of the classic ugly duckling tale.

Her majesty Jenny Rudloff joins us for lots of G-rated family fun (and surprise charcuterie) as we transform into our best selves for Anne Hathaway's coming-out party. 

The Princess Diaries (2001)
Directed by Garry Marshall
Written by Gina Wendkos
Based on the book by Meg Cabot
Starring Anne Hathaway, Julie Andrews, Heather Matarazzo, H├ęctor Elizondo, Robert Schwartzman, Erik von Detten, Caroline Goodall, Sandra Oh, Larry Miller, and Mandy Moore

Episode 209 - THE LORD OF THE RINGS TRILOGY

The world has changed. It's been two decades since The Lord of the Rings trilogy redefined everything about epic cinema, and we're kicking off a new year of podcasting with an episode to match the scale and ambition of Peter Jackson's classic imagining of the seminal fantasy saga. 

Because though some of what was has been lost, there are still many who remember, including our own fellowship of Alyssa Renzi, Barm, and Sean Davis, who each join us to pontificate on their personal favorite entry of the trilogy. It's a LOTR lovefest that's nothing short of...precious.
