Dorking Out About Baseball Movies

Leave a comment

Yeah, so, just in case you missed it we had a pretty big announcement on Dorking Out with Chris and Sonia last week. It’s going to be Dorking Out with Sonia for the summer, while Smith takes a sabbatical and works on some projects he needs time to finish.

But, the show must go on … so I’ve reached out to some of my favorite podcasters, who have graciously agreed to come on the show this summer. PLUS, my mighty, mighty good man David will be on some episodes, including today’s episode about baseball movies, specifically “Major League” and “Field Of Dreams.” Somehow David had never seen these movies until last week. You can listen to it riiiight here.


Smith will be missed, but I’ll definitely try to keep things going in his absence. We’ve had some entertaining episodes recently, so you haven’t listened you should check them out.

We reviewed new movies such as “Avengers Infinity War” with David, the horror movie “The Quiet Place” and “Ready Player One.”

We had a fascinating discussion with Chris Taylor from Mashable and author of the book, “How Star Wars Conquered the Universe” about the current state of fandom.

Our discussion of “The Contender” with Margo D. from Book vs. Movie and The Best Neighbors Podcast is one of my favorite episodes ever! Margo is hilarious and awesome.

And I loved talking about  “Sixteen Candles” with Peter Brown. It’s a movie that meant a lot to me growing up, and we had a really interesting discussion about how we process our feelings about the movies we loved as kids that don’t age well.

We followed that episode talking about the sexism and racism in movies and TV shows in The Random Dorking Out Edition, including our thoughts about Molly Ringwald’s piece in the New Yorker, “The Simpsons vs. Apu” and more.

Oh, and we talked about which movies we’re most excited to see this summer, but we started the episode talking about “Wild Wild Country” because I HAD to talk about it. You should listen.

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.
