Get a ‘Clue’ about Woody Allen

Yeah, so, here’s a rundown of this week’s podcast episodes.

At Dorking Out, Margo and I are talking about 1985’s “Clue,” starring everyone. During this rewatch I developed a new appreciation for Leslie Ann Warren’s Miss Scarlett, but Eileen Brennan’s Mrs. Peacock is still my style icon.

And over at What a Creep, we’re talking about Woody Allen.

We realize that for some this is a He Said/She Said situation, and we are Team She Said. And whether you believe Woody Allen sexually abused his daughter or not (and I think he did), he did have a sexual relationship with a young woman who was his children’s sister, and practically his step-daughter. That’s not up for debate. That’s a fact. That alone makes him a creep in my book.

ANYWAY, What a Creep is finding its audience, and that is really exciting. We have a Patreon page, and if you sign up you can get these adorable (everybody drink) charms and stickers.

Dorking out about ‘Roll Bounce’

Yeah, so, Margo and I put on our skates and dork out about “Roll Bounce” for this week’s Dorking Out.

My friends, this movie is just a joy to watch with the best soundtrack. If you’ve never seen, do yourself a solid and watch it now. And if you’ve seen it before, watch it again. You won’t be sorry.

Dork out everywhere …

Dorking out about ‘Summer School’

Yeah, so, this week’s Margo and I get a little hot for teacher and dork out about “Summer School,” starring Mark Harmon and Kirstie Alley.

We have a lot of thoughts about the characters Chainsaw and Dave. Before Bill and Ted, before Wayne and Garth, there were Chainsaw and Dave.

Dork out everywhere …

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.

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 …
