Episode 12: Serendipity, Baby!

Going in, I never expected this to be one of our longest episodes. And believe it or not, the Christopher Nolan movie didn’t take up the majority of the discussion. Can a movie be a magic trick? Can a standard issue thriller still be good? And is Justine finally watching Doctor Who? Find out!

P. S. For the record, after Justine’s statements on this episode, I went back to see how many of her movies I liked during the course of the show. It’s more than half. So there!

Episode 11: Jolly Good Show

Welcome to 19th century London. This week we take a look at Vanity Fair and Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. I recorded with a nigh crippling migraine; question is, did one of the movies bring this on? All this and porn too! Enjoy.

Vid Pod Quo Episode 1: Snow White & The Huntsman

What’s this? A video review?!?! Why yes it is! As part of our Quid Pod Quo 2.0 refresh, we’re adding some video reviews to the mix to give more content more often. Justine will still be doing her text reviews on the site from time to time, but I’m quitting that jazz, and when I need to do a quick review, it’ll be in this format! It didn’t make sense to change the Quid Pod Quo format from 2 movies to one, and still call it an episode. So unless it’s paired with another movie, it’ll get a text review from Justine and/or a video review from yours truly. Hope you guys enjoy!

Episode 9: Never Mind the Bollocks, Here’s The Avengers

We’re baaaaaaaack! Miss us? We sure as hell missed you guys. If you’re seeing this, then you stuck around through our unexpected hiatus and we cannot thank you enough.

Formalities out of the way, lets get down to business with a Very Special Episode. No, no one has a disease, or an underage drinking problem. It’s a different type of Very Special Episode. Two weeks ago, we sat down to review The Avengers, we had no idea it would end up breaking so many box office records. This will most likely be the biggest movie we review for Quid Pod Quo. Unless The Dark Knight Rises, makes it onto our review list!

The other reason this is a VSE is because it is the final episode of what we’re referring to as Quid Pod Quo 1.0. All of our episodes so far (including this one) were recorded on outdated, old software and woefully underpowered hardware. We wanted to create a podcast so bad, we just jumped right in with both feet and figured out mistakes as we went along. Now we feel a little more knowledgeable about what we’re doing. We have better software and hardware. We’re going to have a new show format that we think will work better and be more entertaining. And we’re excited to debut all of that to our loyal Quid Pod Quoers in our next episode! For now though, sit back, relax and hear our thoughts on the biggest movie of the year so far!

Episode 8: Vaya Con Diablo

Welcome back Quid Pod Quoers! This week we watched two films written by screenwriting darling of the indie scene, Diablo Cody. Both our hosts have strong feelings going into the episode (Justine liked Juno, Jared hated the writing). Will they feel the same after watching Jennifer’s Body and Young Adult?  Will Jared have to dust off his Emma Stone rant from The Help? Did Justine really see Jennifer’s Body before, or is she horribly mistaken? Find out now!

A little way into the Jennifer’s Body segment, my mic cut out and we had to re-record another day, so we may repeat ourselves. Sorry!

Episode 7: Dirty, Sexy, Musicals

Finally, the Quid has come back to podcasting! You’ll have to excuse me,  I’m getting amped for Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s return to the ring at Wrestlemania XXVIII this Sunday. What’s that got to do with Grease and The Rocky Horror Picture Show? Not a damn thing. But since we didn’t post a show last Tuesday, I felt a little flourish was in order for this week’s intro.

Every great show has a musical episode (right? RIGHT!???!?) and this is ours.

BTW, about 20 minutes in we had to change out a mic, so the sound quality changes a little bit. Other than that, enjoy!

Episode 6: Am I Black Enough For You?

Wow.  Who would’ve thought that a critically acclaimed, Oscar nominated film would’ve lead to our most impassioned debate? In this episode find out:

-Justine’s rankings for Tarantino’s oeuvre.

-What British transvestite we quote when extremely sleep deprived.

-Whether or not being compared to The Color Purple is a good thing.

-And why Jared is actually excited about November’s Twilight Saga retrospective.

All this and the genesis of a Quid Pod Quo drinking game!

P. S.  No spouses were harmed in the making of this episode.

P. P. S.  Never let it be said that I’m not passionate about Quid Pod Quo. I spent the evening editing and uploading this episode instead of playing this :

Mass FREAKING Effect 3!

Hope you appreciate it!

Scheduling Changes

After giving it some thought, Justine & I have decided to make the podcast biweekly. The recording and editing and show prep have taken more time than we anticipated. We love doing it, but not the (self-imposed) pressures that come with getting a new episode ready every week.
As a lot of you know, we are full-time working parents of three kids. So our free timely somewhat sacrosanct. Changing to biweekly will help us stay on schedule without having to push back episodes every week. Stability is the goal here.

Thank you so much for listening! Our next episode will be live next Tuesday.

Episode 3: From Austen To Zombies

 

In our latest episode find out:

-What happens when a 19th century romance  meets an 80s punk rock, cult classic…?

-What connection  the legacies of Jane Austen and Jim Henson have…?

-What’s the best way to end a zombie movie…?

-Can breast implants survive the reanimation process…?

-What important life lessons can young women of today learn from a woman named “Trash”…?

All these questions and more will be answered in Quid Pod Quo Episode 3: From Austen to Zombies (aka Hopefully Our Last With Crappy Mics).

As always this episode contains spoilers, profanity, and a slightly creepy obsession with Kiera Knightly’s face.

Also, we need a clever title for our next episode, in which we watch Crazy, Stupid, Love and Attack the Block. Please leave any and all suggestions in the comments below.

Thanks for listening!
