The new four seasons: Spring, Summer, Fall, and Fighting About the Romantic Comedy Love Actually. Joseph and his guests, comedian Jim Robinson (who hates Love Actually) and librarian Jody Wurl (who loves Love Actually), gently dissect the film with a chainsaw. We address such thorny questions as: Is the film sexist? What’s the deal with the turtlenecks? Isn’t Bill Nighy awesome? Why do the girls from Wisconsin dress like cowboy hookers? What music would you play to annoy your family at your own funeral? Is Love Actually a cracked, dirty mirror through which we see ourselves? Should the film be called Ambiguous Actually? This episode was recorded live in Joseph’s home so there isn’t a live audience but we did get really upset and bump the mic a few times so please enjoy those ambient noises.

A fun conversation about the horror of the universe! Joseph is joined by actors/writers/tortured human beings Jim Robinson and John Middleton. Highlights include a discussion of a new PBS show called The Afterlife Train, a filthy and dangerous tea, and that haunting question “Does it matter where I poop in an uncaring universe?” Listen to the abyss and the abyss will listen back!
