A bizarre mistake on the They Live podcast becomes a coveted T-shirt. Buy yours today!
This week we cover the 1999 film All About My Mother, which causes Lewis to reminisce about his Bohemian days in Barcelona and Ian to lament how old we all are. Also, Penelope Cruz dressed up as Mario.
It may not be the best John Carpenter film, it may not be the best conspiracy film, it probably even isn’t the best film with a former wrestler in it’s lead role, but damnit, They Live is something special…
A very, very belated International Woman’s Day influenced podcast. Lewis and Ian watch the 1980 screwball classic Nine to Five.
