Episode 94 – Uncut Gems

The Safdie brothers thriller is as multi-faceted as the titular gem itself. John sees Howard Ratner’s struggle as a microcosm of the human existence where we fruitlessly try to gain forward progress while trapped on the hamster wheel of modern existence. Alexx wants more dick jokes.

Episode 93 – You’ve Got Mail

“You’ve got males.” Get it? Like the AOL soundclip, and John and Alexx identify as male? It’s a homonym joke…
