One note of caution: There are spoilers, so if you haven’t yet seen Us, and you want to see it before learning about any of its twists and turns, you should skip the discussion. If you HAVE seen it, brace yourself for the in-depth discussion. Does this movie live up to its hype? Is the symbolism in the movie effective? Why does Wynter think she has to watch it again? These questions, and more, will be answered.

Episode 65: Big Gay Ice Cream

Big Gay Ice Cream's Doug Quint

Episode 65 is here and most people can't even handle it probably! This time around, pull your loved ones close as I sit down with Big Gay Ice Cream's Doug Quint in the basement/murder hole of their West Village shop to discuss topics including but not limited to ice cream (I mean, c'mon- it would have been weird not to) his dark past as a classically trained musician, the lactose intolerance of the Magnetic Fields' Stephin Merritt, the inevitable breakup of Motley Crue, the oboe, those bassoon-playing bastards, whether I will ever amount to anything, and much, much more. I also answer extremely important listener questions, check in with my secretary Shaina Feinberg, and pass the baton to Ian Ball as he delivers hit hot Hot Jamz from London once again. For more information this podcast and oher Dave-related stuff, please visit my website at and follow me on Twitter at @mrdavehill. Okay- those are my demands.
