244: What‘s Your Favorite Scary Movie? (Scream)
Happy Monday, Christmas fanatics! Happy Indigenous Peoples' Day and, to our Canadian friends and family, Happy Canadian Thanksgiving! Join Julia, Thom, and Anthony as they continue their journey through Spooky Season by traveling back in time to the fictional town of Woodsboro, California - 1996 - to cover the satirical-horror film, "Scream"! While this is one of Anthony's favorite movies of all time, Thom hasn't seen it since it came out and Julia has never seen it in full despite it being such a cultural zeitgeist! What do our two Oklahomans think of it? Does it stand the test of time or is it outdated? And did the film set out to fulfill its mission of not only deconstructing the most iconic scary movies that everybody knows, but also becoming one of the greats itself? Tune in to find out the answers to all of these questions and much, much more in this fun episode full of well-researched (for once!) trivia and a wide-ranging discussion! Also in this episode, the elves read listener feedback regarding the following questions:
- 1. Who would you cast in a "Sesame Street" version of "A Christmas Carol"?
- 2. What is the worst Christmas gift you've ever received?
- 3. What are the "rules" to survive an episode of "Tis the Podcast"?
So, settle in with your favorite Autumn-flavored drink, open those windows to let in that Fall breeze, and enjoy! This is one spooky episode you want to be sure not to miss! And if you want even more "Tis the Podcast", check your podcast feeds this upcoming Tuesday (tomorrow!) to hear Chapter Thirty-Six of “Another Christmas Story” entitled “Happy Xmas (War Is Over)”, which Matt Spaulding of "2 Broke Geeks", "The F.B.I.'s Most Unwanted", and "Green Mountain Santa" will be reading to you! The delay comes after a bit of confusion in which both our very own Thom and Kim Cooper, of "Planning for Christmas" both ended up reading Chapter Thirty-Seven, so Chapter Thirty-Six wasn't ready to release next week as it wasn't recorded! Never fear though, in addition to Chapter Thirty-Six dropping tomorrow, check your feeds this upcoming Thursday to hear a mash-up of both Thom and Kim reading Chapter Thirty-Seven of our tale, entitled, "Fairytale of New York"! Enjoy, y’all! 🎅🏻🎄🎁 🦌🦉⛄️🚂🔔 🤶🏻 🎀 ❄️
