Episode 261: Under the SkinPosted by Jason

Play

1200x630bbMinimal. Creepy. Seductive. Highly disturbing. But enough about my guest cohost this week, Harry Duran, let’s talk about the movie we’re covering, Under the Skin, starring Scarlett Johansson :P It was all those things, and also, we thought, incredibly thought-provoking and well made—and it’s crazy the movie used footage from hidden cameras filming Scarlett Johansson actually picking up men.

Also, some TV news, and feedback from you guys!

You can find dozens of down-to-earth, in-depth interviews with podcasters (including ones with me and Karen) by my guest Harry Duran over at podcastjunkies.com.

Episode 260: Pictures of You + The Girl with All the GiftsPosted by Jason

TGWATG-Poster-27x39

This ep we read all your haiku and describe your photos from the Fracture contest, and reveal the winner (who gets a $100 Fracture gift certificate). Karen and I were seriously delighted and moved by those. Thank you to everyone who entered.

Also, we talk about the film version of The Girl with All the Gifts, which you can rent on iTunes or Amazon if you want to watch it first. And we cover some news, and do our usual goofing around.

ANNOUNCEMENT I’m thinking of setting a new goal for Patreon. If we make it to $1000/month, I’ll do something embarrassing. But I haven’t figured out what that is yet. If you have any ideas for what that should be, email brains@podcastica.com. And you can check out our Patreon page at patreon.com/jasonandkaren.
