Ep. 001 | The Correction Podcast – That One Where We Talk About the Election

Raise the shields, Number One! We’re headed into slightly different territory than normal. Welcome to the pilot episode of The Correction podcast, where we talk about recent political events and try (as three liberally minded Americans) to come to terms with the 2016 election and make sense of how to move forward. While the Correction won’t be solely devoted to politics (we also like technology, culture, and fiction of various sorts), it’s a bit hard to step outside of the malaise that’s landed upon us.

Sometimes talking itself is a thing that can help, because words are actions.

Ep. 40 – The Ice Storm

Winter is coming. Join Frodo, Spiderman, and Wednesday Addams (with special guest appearance from Wild Wild West’s Artemus Gordon) as they weather a monster of a storm. Oh, and also as some of them partake in the mystic rituals of a key party. Wait, you do what with your keys?

Safety Warning: Never under any circumstances have direct physical contact with a guard rail…

Ep. 39 – Monty Python’s Life of Brian

“Alright, alright…but apart from weekly reviews and commentary on movies, quirky poetic plots, riveting banter, and the cinematic expertise of at least one wikipedia search, what has the Criterion Correction ever done for us?”

We’ve given you an episode on Monty Python’s Life of Brian, that’s what we’ve done!

Ep. 38 – Dressed to Kill

Do you like Hitchcock? What about Psycho? If that’s the case, then you’re in luck because we’re practically watching the same movie this week. Okay, okay, maybe it’s not the same movie, but it’s definitely got some loving homage going on. Join us as we talk about Dressed to Kill.

Ep. 37 – House

Our Spooktacular Octoberween extravaganza continues with a horror movie that screams of surrealism. Come along with Gorgeous, Sweet, Prof, Fantasy, Mac, Melody, and Kung Fu on the journey of a…summer school trip to Auntie’s house. Seven enter, and…well, you probably know how this goes, right? Join us for: House.

Ep. 36 – The Brood

Parenthood can be hard at the best of times. But when parenthood means spawning a series of deformed rage babies that roam out into the world murdering your enemies, it’s completely awesome. Join us this week for yet another adventure into Cronenberg-land with The Brood.

Ep. 35 – Scanners

Do you feel a little off balance? Does your head hurt? Sure, maybe it’s allergies. Or it could be a psychic homicidal freedom fighter with a deathwish for most “normals” who also has the uncanny ability to make your head explore with a little bit of concentration. This week we take a look at Scanners.

Ep. 34 – Beyond the Valley of the Dolls

Camp meets crazy in a tale that deconstructs the allure of Hollywood. Join us for Beyond the Valley of the Dolls, the movie that demonstrates that bizarre isn’t always bad…

…unless one half of the podcast’s creative team is having a bad day and takes it out on the film.

Ep. 33 – Seven Samurai

On our third visit with Akira Kurasawa we get to experience it all! Romance, passion, death, and drunkenness. Join us for the classic, Seven Samurai.

Ep. 32 – Persona

Two women walk into a beachside cabin. Only one walks out. Or wait, do two walk out? Were there two to begin with? Has one assimilated the other Borg style? And wait, where did that disembodied narrator come from? And why didn’t the husband recognize his wife!?

Clearly, our film for this week prompts a lot of questions. Join us for Persona.
