Dorking Out: ‘Outbreak’

Yeah, so, with the coronavirus spreading all over the world, Margo and I figured it was a perfect time to revisit 1995’s OUTBREAK on this week’s Dorking Out.

The movie stars renowned action star Dustin Hoffman, Renee Russo, Morgan Freeman, Cuba Gooding, Jr., Donald Sutherland, and super creep Kevin Spacey.

I hope you’re all being safe, my friends.

Unfortunately, here in the U.S., we have an ignorant president, who is more worried about increasing cases of this virus hurting his chances for re-election, and a vice president who doesn’t think science is a thing, so they’re not really doing anything to prevent it from spreading.

Good times!

Punching up, punching down and the Blair Witch

Yeah, so, Margo and I talk about Louis CK on our latest episode of What a Creep.

There are some folks who think what Louis CK did isn’t that big of a deal. It is, and we talk about it. We also have a really good chat about the difference between punching up and punching down in comedy.

Oh, and, I get all ranty, so if you’re aching to hear Ranty Sonia, this is the episode for you.

Over at Dorking Out, we continue to celebrate F This Movie’s #ScaryMovieMonth with an episode about “The Blair Witch Project.” This movie absolutely terrified me back in 1999. How does it hold up? We talk about it.

We’ve got big plans for both podcasts in November. The Patreon page for What a Creep will go live soon. Plus, we’re celebrating season 5 (OMG!) in November with a theme: 90s in November. If you have a movie from the ’90s you’d love for us to dork out about, let us know on Twitter or send us an email at dorkingoutshow@gmail.com.

Robin Hood is a total fox

Yeah, so, let’s talk about creeeeeeps. We kicked off season 3 (!) of What a Creep, and this time we went a little old school. Margo tells me why Errol Flynn is a creep, and we decide that the Fox in the animated “Robin Hood” is the sexiest Robin Hood.

We’ve got a modern creep coming this week. I don’t want to reveal who is it now, but I’ll say that we’re going to have a really great conversation about punching up and punching down when it comes to standup comedy.

Over at Dorking Out headquarters, we’re celebrating F This Movie’s #ScaryMovieMonth. We dork out about “The Hand that Rocks the Cradle” and “Poltergeist.” We’ve got a few more scary episodes this month.

We’re celebrating season 5 (!) in November with a theme: 90s in November. If you have a movies from the 90s you’d love for us to dork out about, let us know on Twitter or send us an email at dorkingoutshow@gmail.com.

Yeah, so, here’s a few podcasting updates for you …

Over at Dorking Out, Margo and I chat about about “Footloose“, “Just One Of The Guys” and “Old School.

And over at What a Creep, we explain why Betsy DeVos, Jeffrey Epstein and Charlie Sheen are garbage people.

Here’s actual footage of me talking about Betsy DeVos …

This week in podcasting: Defending Your Life and R. Kelly

Yeah, so, here’s your weekly podcast update …

On this week’s Dorking Out, Margo and I talk about 1991’s “Defending Your Life,” starring Albert Brooks, Meryl Streep and Rip Torn (RIP).

And, we kicked off Season Two of What a Creep! This week’s creep is R. Kelly. You know, I love R&B, soul, rap and hip-hop, and yet I have never owned single R. Kelly song. #humblebrag

Being creepy

Yeah, so, I’m super excited to announce that my new podcast with Margo D. is out there in the world.

It’s “What a Creep,” and every week we will talk about a creep. But don’t worry. We don’t want you to think the world is a complete dumpster fire, so we’re adding every episode with someone who isn’t a creep. So far, we’ve talked about Lance Armstrong, Newt Gingrich, Elizabeth Holmes and Mel Gibson.

You’d think that talking about someone who is a huge asshole wouldn’t be fun, but I swear it is. You should listen. Coming out this Friday is Chevy Chase. Be glad that he’s Chevy Chase and you’re not is all I’m saying.

In other podcasting news, there are a few new Dorking Out episodes for you to catch up on, including “Speed,” “Fatal Attraction” and “Baby Boom.”

Up next for Dorking Out is “Creed,” which most likely includes “Rocky” and “Creed 2” in the discussion.

Coming soon: What a Creep!

Yeah, so, apparently I love the sound of my own voice (and Margo’s voice) because I’m doing another podcast with my podcasting sister from another mister, Margo D.

Our new podcast, What a Creep, starts Friday. We’re going to talk about creeps! My friends, you are going to LOVE THIS ONE. Margo and I are going to alternate stories about creeps, and every episode will end with a story about someone who isn’t a creep, so you don’t end the podcast thinking the world is a dumpster fire.

Don’t worry, though, Dorking Out isn’t going anywhere. We will still have new episodes every week. Here’s what you’ve missed lately:

  • What is really going on in 1991’s “Father Of The Bride?” One of our favorite podcasters and writers Adam Riske from F This Movie! joins us to talk about it.
  • Smith returns to the podcast to talk about “Avengers: Endgame” with me.
  • Apparently, Jazzercise is a thing again, so Margo and I decided to talk about 1985’s “Perfect,” starring John Travolta and Jamie Lee Curtis.
  • By popular request, Margo and I talk about “Grosse Pointe Blank,” starring John Cusack and Minnie Driver, who retweeted our podcast and liked our tweets. NBD.
  • We talked about “13 Going on 30,” and we decided we definitely don’t want to be 13 again.
  • I wonder why we wanted to talk about “Dick?” It’s not relevant to our current political climate at all. Sigh.

So many podcasts: Pet Sematary, Fletch, Devil Wears Prada and Revenge of the Nerds

Yeah, so, I’ve got a couple of podcasts to share with you.

Pet Sematary (2019) vs. Pet Sematary (1989) – I’m so dedicated to Dorking Out that I sat through two versions of “Pet Sematary,” but apparently I’m not dedicated enough to sit through “Pet Sematary 2.”

Fletch – Former co-host Chris Smith returns to talk about “Fletch” and update us on his documentary series, “Three Days In Paradise.”

The Devil Wears Prada – I’m probably two or three stomach flus away from my goal weight. Margo and I had so much fun talking about this one and Margo has some great stories.

Oh, and Margo and I were invited to go on my favorite podcast F This Movie to talk about “Revenge of the Nerds.” NBD!

Also, Margo and I have an exciting announcement soon, so stay tuned!
