It’s been a minute on the Cinephile Hissy Fit podcast, sponsored and supported by the Ruminations Radio Network, since our last “deep cut” episode on the high points and underappreciated films of a performer’s career. Woody Harrelson was the previous one back around the opening of Venom: Let There Be Carnage. For Women’s History Month, we selected one of the best and most positive female icons of our generation.

For their 58th episode, pudgy film critics, pandemic dads, and formerly-quarantined teachers Will Johnson and Don Shanahan welcome back Chicago-based film critic Annie Banks of Chuck Load of Comics for a second episode. They dive into the headspace and isolation of Bo Burnham’s recent Grammy-award winning comedy special Inside. The debate is on whether this was a movie or just a very well-produced comedy special among other triggers and peccadillos that come with the manic personality of Bo Burnham. Come for the shared challenge and tirade and stay for the mutual love and respect for the fun movies encapsulate. Enjoy our podcast!
