Our Friends Said They'd Listen

Our Friends Said They'd Listen is one of the two greatest podcasts hosted by David and Ron, who host two great podcasts. We talk about all kinds of movies- especially old and obscure ones. Plus really bad ones that we like for some reason. Nobody wears pants during taping (we thought it was important to include that last part).

May 26, 2017

Ron and David talk about The World According to Garp, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Ms. Swan's trust issues. I mean, why can't she believe in ghost stories? There's a ghost monkey right in front of her. Repeatedly. In fairness, you try wearing a corset.

May 6, 2017

Ron and David invite Cory Caplan on to talk "The Prestige," also known as "the other movie about magicians that isn't 'The Illusionist.'" Actually, we thought we were covering "The Illusionist" and were really disappointed to find out we'd made a mistake.
