Welcome to the first episode of the DORKING OUT SHOW! This is the new podcast starring Chris Smith and Sonia Mansfield where two dorks talk in-depth about all things in entertainment. We have a lot to unpack with this epic conclusion of the sixth season, so to help us out we bought in some super “Game Of Throne” dorks, including Harrison L. Smith and Peter Brown, associate editor of Assignment X. We talk about what we think about this explosive episode, plus some fun fan theories and what we think will happen in the final two seasons.

Robert McDowell and Andy Hull vocally unleash the SWISS ARMY MAN – Interview

When you’re marooned on an ocean-lost island, many things come to mind in the madness of utter isolation. For the increasingly suicidal Hank (Paul Dano), it’s the Greek chorus (by way of Polynesian chant) of American composers Andy Hull and Robert McDowell. Their harmonies are full of tuneful lament and poetic irony, vocalese that turns to self-accusing song, all telling Hank to take The Big Dive. But just before he steps over the edge, Hank’s isolation is interrupted by the appearance of the very Manny (Daniel Radcliffe), whose very dead condition doesn’t mean that this can’t become the beginning of […]Read On »

RAIDERS!: Documentary directors Jeremy Coon and Tim Skousen roll a home-made boulder of Indy boys to men – Interview

It’s a story that even Hollywood couldn’t make up, and a film urban legend until it was finally proven to be true. No doubt hundreds, if not thousand of children had their lives irreversibly altered upon their first, then repeated viewings of RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, setting creative life goals in a way that went beyond play acting Indy in their friends’ back yards. But for a ragtag group of still-pubescent youths led by “indy” Chris Strompolos and director Eric Zala, it actually meant spending their lives straight into college re-creating RAIDERS shot-for-shot. Put away into their private warehouse, […]Read On »

There was a bit of a production snafu in this episode of the POP SHOW PODCAST starring Anthony C. Ferrante, which resulted in the loss of some takes on pop culture forever being lost in the ether of the universe. This was mostly Anthony going off on various tangents. So if you enjoy that portion of our podcast, we apologize that you’ll never get to hear it. If you don’t like that portion of our podcast, well congratulations you won’t hear it either. Luckily (Hodor), we do have a really good discussion about GAME OF THRONES (Hodor!) that has already had […]Read On »
