On a surprisingly cultured episode, Paula and Adam explore high art and haute cuisine. Luke McKinley, Maitre d’ at the amazing Providence restaurant reveals the secrets of getting the right table and figuring out the menu. And if he were a wine, we don’t mind saying that we paired Mr. McKinley perfectly with Dr. Jennifer Greenhill, Art History Professor from USC, who helped us explore the very nature of art, from Jackson Pollack to Norman Rockwell to a toasted bagel left on a gallery floor. Plus - we debut our Department of Corrections, wherein we correct a few slight, teensy-weensy inaccuracies that may have made it onto our show.

The Greatest Generation DS9 Ep 238: Resting Prophecy Face (S3E15)

| 0 comments

When Cardassian scientists arrive on DS9 with a plan to communicate through the wormhole, it’ll take more than a Bajoran with a picket sign to stop Commander Sisko’s mission. But when prophecy turns into reality, O’Brien and the Cardassians must work past their differences in order to save the day. How many Peck’s Bad Boy films are in the Marvel cinematic universe? In which quadrant is the bedroom? What is the half-life of embarrassment? It’s the episode that doesn’t blink. Ever.

Come see us live on tour with Greatest Gen Khan!

When Dr. Sydnee and Justin find themselves in Colorado, an episode on Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever seems a natural fit ... except it's not really that common in Colorado. But when the story of a disease is able to tie together cow-dipping terrorism and frozen food, how can they resist?

It's well known in the Rocketeer community that our host this week, Wynter Mitchell-Ragnarok, is a huge horror buff. She watches two to three a week, and she is running out of horror flicks to watch on all the streaming services. Send her your recommendations! In the meantime, Wynter forced Karen, Margaret and Who Shot Ya?’s Ricky Carmona to subject themselves to some of her favorite movies from the holiday genre, such as Black Christmas, Silent Night, Deadly Night, and their sequels.

Our special guest this week is the hilarious Ricky Carmona, the host of the Maximum Fun movie podcast Who Shot Ya? and he's also a staff writer on the Comedy Central TV series Tosh.0.

All Abouts

Margaret is all about ROMA, a new film by acclaimed director Alfonso Cuarón. The movie is heavily based on his childhood in Mexico City in the 1970s and his family's live-in housekeeper.

Karen has a backhanded All About on Netflix's bro-y, new food competition show The Final Table.

Ricky is all about Adam Sandler's latest stand-up comedy special also on Netflix called 100% Fresh.

Wynter is all about season 1 of the USA Network crime drama The Sinner starring Jessica Biel and Bill Pullman.

That's My Jam

Margaret - Phosphorescent - New Birth in New England.

Karen - This Is Me (Reimagined Remix) - Keala Settle, Kesha & Missy Elliott

Ricky - Sounds of Blackness - Optimistic

Wynter - Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band - Great to Be Here

With Wynter Mitchell-Rohrbaugh, Karen Tongson, Margaret Wappler , and Ricky Carmona/a>.

Ross and Carrie stop by the local Philosophical Research Society for a lecture and quick group bath. After a thorough introduction to sound as medicine going back to the days of Atlantis, they take a sonic journey through their psyches, via a sound bath produced by crystal singing bowls. It's a "forced meditation" for the unmeditateable. Take three deep breaths, and have a listen!

Creed II

Listening to this episode will get you as pumped as Rocky running up all those steps. And you don't even need to drink raw eggs! This episode's got some PUNCH to it. That's right, we're talking Creed II and we're joined by Philly's own CJ Sullivan. Alonso announces that he is officially in full on Christmas mode. April is excited about Alicia Malone's new book called The Female Gaze (which April also contributed to). It's Ricky's Mom's birthday and he's sending her a cake. And CJ is just happy that Brigitte Nielsen is back in our lives with her appearance in Creed II. We answer a call from the "Who Shotline" about film genres that we don't care about. We get another infusion of The El Mero Mero de Navidad Christmas Minute. And of course, staff picks.

In news, Christopher McQuarrie wants the Oscars to introduce an award for stunts, Julie Andrews is a giant fish monster, and we discuss the careers of Nicolas Roeg and Bernardo Bertolucci .

Weekly Movie Recommendations:

Ricky - McCabe & Mrs. Miller
Alonso - Cola de Mono
April - Volcano
CJ - Mississippi Grind

PLUS, we have two Spotify playlists. One is for Movie Soundtracks and the other is for Movie Scores. Check 'em out!

Next week we're discussing Green Book with Holly Walker .

With CJ Sullivan, April Wolfe, Alonso Duralde, and Ricky Carmona.
