Pouring one out for all the movie deaths on the big screen.
Death scenes in movies can be one of the most effective ways to keep the spirit of the film alive after it ends. A good movie death can range from gruesome, to heartbreakingly sad, to downright hilarious. Either way, when done right, it can make the audience elicit an emotion that connects ourselves to the movie and it’s characters for years to come. Join Tuong La and That’s How I Remember It/Sonar Network’s Michael Mongiardi, John Richardson, and Raul Delgado as they relive the most memorable demises in cinema and rank Top 5 Iconic Death Scenes in Movies.

We are all unpacked and settled into a brand new PodCavern so the fires of Talkin’ Tuong are burning once more!

Dracarys!
If there is one thing we can agree on collectively, it’s that Dragons are pretty frickin’ cool. Something about these fire-breathing, scaly, giant flying lizards has endured throughout our history, literature, and mythology. This week join Tuong and Daring Dragon Riders, Justin Godelie, Shannon Godelie, and Dan Foerster as they take to the skies and reign down a fiery Top 5 Dragons list!

Maybe he’s your favourite flying elephant, or maybe he’s the only flying elephant you know. Either way, Dumbo has got a lot to talk about – from those ears, to that pink elephant fever dream, to the racist stereotypes you probably don’t remember from childhood.

Remember that one where Mickey wore the wizard hat, and there were dinosaurs, but also fairies and mermaids, and then a hippo did ballet and also Satan made an appearance? No, that wasn’t a trip, that was Fantasia. Follow us as we try to decipher everything from the film’s abstract sound and imagery to Cupid’s missing butthole (Spoiler: the centaurs have something to do with it).

“I was saying Boo-urns”

Ah The Simpsons. A show which is well regarded as one of the best TV shows of all time purely based on it’s early seasons. While the show is still ongoing and has just completed its 31’st season, the magic of this beloved animated family started to wane somewhere after the first third of it’s total run. That said, at it’s best, The Simpsons in it’s prime has some of the snappiest/most hilarious dialogue, phenomenal visual gags, and the most heartwarming moments in TV history. This week join Tuong La and Attractive Shelbyville Cousins Matt Barrow, Taylor Fleming, and Samantha Leggatt as they ‘Do the Bartman’ while ranking Top 5 Simpsons Episodes!
