Whip noise! Joseph’s guest is comedian/singer/human Tim Wick who is very obsessed with the film Raiders of the Lost Ark. We consider such adventurous questions as: Is the film a romantic comedy? Do monkeys make good spies? Is Indiana Jones a good archeologist? How much of the theme can Tim sing? Could George Lucas take Steven Spielberg in a fist fight? Plus, enjoy such geektastic quotes as “Indiana Jones is like if Han Solo was a D&D character!” and “You don’t need a whip and a gun to pick up two shards of pottery.”

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.
