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).

As 2016 breathes its final gasps David, Ron, and a special guest talk Star Wars Episode VII and Rogue One. Some holiday movies are mentioned and - oh yeah - we figured we'd try for three weeks of La La Land talk in a row.

Dec 23, 2016

Join us for our holiday spectacular! There's even singing! (We're sorry). Ron and David talk Holiday Inn and White Christmas, Ron saw La La Land, and David weighs in on Heavy Weights (See what I did there? David - you're writing these from now on).

Dec 16, 2016

David and special guest Reid profess their love for Die Hard, and Ron talks virtual reality (and also professes a little love for Die Hard, just slightly less so).

Dec 16, 2016

We saw Rogue One and then sat in a parking lot and recorded our thoughts. Join us for our very first Instant-Take episode!

Dec 10, 2016

Ron and David realize When Harry Met Sally might not be as "Christmas adjacent" as they thought, Ron joins the "I Saw Moana" party, and David re-watched Just Friends.

Dec 3, 2016

David and Ron gush over their first "Christmas adjacent" film: Billy Wilder's "The Apartment." And it's that time of year again - when there are more good movies in theater than anyone can possibly see (but Ron and David do their best to cover some of the hits).

Nov 24, 2016

David, Ron, and special guest Evan Brown discuss the first foreign film covered on the podcast: the family friendly* Japanese film Lala Pipo. Evan talks about the movies he saw this week ('cause Ron and David slacked off).

*Not actually family friendly

Nov 17, 2016

David and Ron discuss a movie that's even more quotable than this podcast (Sweet Smell of Success), Ron saw a couple of new releases, and David weighs in on an absolute classic (Mr. Mom)

Nov 12, 2016

Ron and David defend one of Pixar's most maligned films, Ron saw one of the best picture category's frontrunners (Moonlight), and ... Basically all you need to know is this turned into our Pixar Mega Episode. We probably should have lead with that, huh?

Nov 4, 2016

Ron and David talk about Mean Girls and relive their glory days (last Tuesday through Thursday), and Ron doesn't have particularly strong feelings for The Girl on the Train (the movie, that is).

Keep an eye out for our spin-off podcast: Our Friends: The Anthology!  Airing Sunday evenings, we watch and discuss an episode from an anthology show each week. First up? Amazing Stories, Season 1: Episode 1 - Ghost Train.

Oct 28, 2016

Ron and David talk in depth about Stephen King's IT, go over two Tales from the Crypt episodes, and make a very special announcement! (It's a girl!!)

Our Tales from the Crypt discussion goes from 13:29 - 32:36 (Whoops!). Please feel free to skip it if you haven't seen the two episodes (Abra Cadaver and Maniac at Large).  Or if you don't want The Usual Suspects spoiled (at around 29:55).

Oct 20, 2016

The Halloween celebration continues with Ron and David throwing their VHS collections in the trash after watching The Ring (2002). David talks Central Intelligence, and the guys disagree on Mr. Robot.  The Tales from the Crypt episode Death of Some Salesman is also discussed in the show's very first double digit episode!

Oct 13, 2016

Ron and David revisit their childhood Halloween guilty pleasures and discover that some things are better left buried.  Hocus Pocus fails to cast a spell on them, and Casper lacks substance.

NOTE: Discussion of the Tales from the Crypt episode goes from around 13:00 - 21:40. If you haven't seen the episode - feel free to skip the conversation as it gets pretty convoluted if you haven't seen the episode Two for the Show.
