The Flop House is a bi-monthly audio podcast, devoted to the worst in recent film. Your hosts (Elliott Kalan, Dan McCoy, and Stuart Wellington) watch a questionable film just before each episode, and then engage in an unscripted, slightly inebriated discussion, focusing on the movie's shortcomings and occasional delights.
 
A biweekly roundtable by the former editorial team of The Dissolve examining how classic films inspire and inform modern movies. Episodes take a deep dive into a classic film and its legacy in the first half, then compare and contrast that film with a modern successor in the second. Hosted and produced by Genevieve Koski, Keith Phipps, Tasha Robinson and Scott Tobias. Part of the Filmspotting family of podcasts.
 
The Audible Originals series Presidents Are People Too! recasts each of the American Presidents as real-life people, complete with flaws, quirks, triumphs, scandals and bodily ailments. Hosts Elliott Kalan, former Daily Show head writer, and American historian and author Alexis Coe talk to experts, comedians, journalists, actors and re-enactors to better understand the men memorialized on the Washington Mall and those all but forgotten.
 
What is the dumbest show you can imagine? This award-winning show may be dumber. It has no content. No format. Yet it's going on ten years of delighting hundreds of thousands of people. It's been an iTunes editors choice, and Rolling Stone picked it as one of the world's best comedy podcasts. It's light in the dark, comfort in the cold and a penguin in the pants (long story). Join hosts Jesse Thorn (NPR's Bullseye) and Jordan Morris (Comedy Central's @Midnight) and a celebrity guest on a rau ...
 
I, Podius is a twelve episode weekly series in which hosts John Hodgman and Elliott Kalan recap the BBC miniseries I, Claudius, an adaptation of Robert Graves’ I, Claudius and Claudius the God. John's watched the show before. Elliott's watching for the first time. The miniseries features an obscenely talented ensemble cast, and is – chock full of sex, backstabbing and murder. This ain't your daddy's I, Claudius. Well, actually it is as the series premiered in 1976. But this ain't your daddy' ...

Broadcasting legend Tom Scharpling (The Best Show, Double Threat ) joins Jordan and Jesse for a discussion of how Jordan has developed a taste for three dollar pear, Tom's targeted ads on Instagram for donut shops and Halloween masks, and Tom's piping hot take of how C-3PO is a worse Star Wars character than even Jar Jar Binks.…
 
Writer-director Sean Durkin’s long-awaited followup to MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE, the new THE NEST casts Jude Law and Carrie Coon as an unhappily married couple in the 1980s who relocate their family to an isolated British country estate, a move that hastens the seemingly inevitable collapse of their family unit. Though the film is separated from th…
 
Greeting boils and ghouls and gender non-kill-forming! For the spooookiest holiday of the year, Thanksgiving, we discuss the very appropriate Happy Halloween, Scooby Doo! Why?

Cody Ziglar (She-Hulk on D+, The Dark Weeb podcast) joins Jordan and Jesse for a discussion of the lesser-known sodas from the south like Cheer Wine, the titillating hashtag Jordan saw being used on the Antiques Roadshow, and the jarring ebb and flow of action in Attack on Titan, an anime that features naked crank-less giants eating people.

Dan and Alonso check out Netflix's new Christmas musical JINGLE JANGLE (2020), which inspires another look at 2007's often-maligned MR. MAGORIUM'S WONDER EMPORIUM, a film Alonso has always defended -- will Dan agree it time for a cult revival and re-evaluation of this financial and critical flop? Follow us @filmandmoviepod on social media, and plea…
 
THE NEST, Sean Durkin’s chilly new drama about a marriage on the brink, weaves together its very 1980s setting and the issues afflicting its central family in a manner we found reminiscent of Ang Lee’s 1997 feature THE ICE STORM, which examines a similar sort of familial dysfunction through the lens of 1970s libertine values. In this half, we debat…
 
DAVID BYRNE’S AMERICAN UTOPIA is a fairly traditional concert film — at least as traditional as a collaboration between David Byrne and Spike Lee can be — which differentiates it from Byrne’s vignette-based 1986 ramble TRUE STORIES, but both projects are indelibly marked by the musician’s mindset, clearly the products of someone who works intuitive…
 
And so we arrive at November, so named because it has no special theme. And, folks, we'll admit... this MIB: International episode is a weird one. Why? Well, finding out is part of the fun. But our guest for this show is Annabelle Gurwitch, from Max Fun's new Tiny Victories podcast, as well as TBS's Dinner and a Movie, countless acting roles, and q…
 
Brea Grant (12 Hour Shift movie, Mary graphic novel) and Mallory O'Meara (The Lady From the Black Lagoon book) join Jordan and Jesse for a discussion of how everyone spent the most powerful Halloween of all time, how Elvira will not sign autographs unless she is in character, and the drive-in porno theater in Brea's hometown. Plus, Jesse helps ever…
 
Hi everyone. Was digging through the archives to see if there was anything we could release today, because it seems like maybe people could use a distraction right now. Anyway, found this old recording of the audio from one of our earliest live shows, way back in 2013, where we riffed over the movie Bratz, and decided to make it public (there are M…

Follow us @filmandmoviepod on social media, and leave us a five-star review on Apple Podcasts or wherever yo…
 
Spike Lee’s new feature-length document of David Byrne’s stage show AMERICAN UTOPIA seemed like a prime opportunity to look back on the the iconoclastic alt-rocker’s own 1986 directorial effort TRUE STORIES, which also uses the framework of Talking Heads songs to muse about the state of America and how humans seek and find connections in the modern…
 
2020 may be miserable, but it's STILL HALLOWEEN DAMN IT. So we assembled a crack team of the Flop House gang, plus comedy writers Mike Reiss and Ken Keeler (who, between them, are responsible for much of the greatness of The Simpsons, The Critic, and Futurama) to discuss the most important and timely issue possible -- the 1962 novelty hit, The Mons…
 
Blaire Erskine (Twitter / Video / Superstar ) joins Jordan and Jesse for a discussion of Jordan's exhilarating run through the resurrected Target Husk, the lawless Christian nightclub for teens Blaire used to go to growing up, and the genderbending papal protest organization called the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence that one of Jesse's childhood m…

Follow us @filmandmoviepod on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, and leave us a five-star review on Apple Podca…
 
Longtime listeners of The Next Picture Show likely have at least passing familiarity with THE FALL via the many, many mentions it’s received over the years from co-host Tasha Robinson, one of the foremost advocates of Tarsem Singh’s hard-to-find, cultishly adored 2008 film. Joining her in that small but mighty fandom is Elliott Kalan, Emmy-winning …
 
Our guest this week is Gillian Flynn, bestselling author of Gone Girl, Sharp Objects, and Dark Places, showrunner for Amazon's Utopia, screenwriter of Widows and adaptations of her own work, winner of the Edgar Award, and BAFTA nominee. We have no idea why she agreed to do this either. But we're happy she did, because for our second and final SHOCK…
 
Alicia Tobin (Retail Nightmares podcast, "So You're A Little Sad, So What?" book) joins Jordan and Jesse for a discussion of the intolerable soundtracks at retail jobs that play on a loop and haunt you for decades, the notoriously awful customer that spawned Alicia's Retail Nightmares podcast, and the Scandinavian gummy store by Jordan's house that…

If you’ve ever wondered, “What if Miranda July made her own version of DOGTOOTH?”, her new film KAJILLIONAIRE would be a pretty good answer. In this half of our pairing of darkly comic films centered on cloistered, dysfunctional families, we parse our reactions to KAJILLIONAIRE before bringing in DOGTOOTH to consider the two films’ respective handl…
