Episode 190 - Conan the Barbarian (1982, Satirist reboot)
Well folx, this is it, our final episode of Swords & Satire. We have tried so hard, and come so far, but in the end, it doesn’t even matter… No, wait, sorry, don’t know where that Lincoln Park song came from, but have created one more episode to honor how far we have come as a show, and the classic fantasy film that started it all, Conan the Barbarian. This is also in thanks to all of our listeners and patrons, who have supported our show and stuck with us through all of the ups and downs. We hope you enjoy this final episode, and until we meet again, Hail Crom!P.S. Hang in there at the end of the episode to catch our very last skit, a little treat for you as a parting gift from us, the Satirists!
Satirist Skit - The Babadook: Family Meeting
So … after watching The Babadook and considering how it ended we were wondering, what would it be like to live with a Babadook in your basement? We figured there would be growing pains, just like with any relationship, and they may need to have a family meeting eventually, right? Well, here we go playing out this confrontation for you, so you no longer need to wonder!
Episode 189 - The Babadook
You may have some perfectly reasonable, perfectly understandable questions about our movie choice for this week. We can hear the masses clamoring to ask us now, with questions like: What does the Babadook have to do with Pride Month? Is demonic possession a regular part of the grieving process? And, why does he wear such a snazzy tophat, and where can I get one? Well, if you are Baba-shook by this film, worry not for we are here to answer all of these questions and more. We also have an important announcement for our listeners, so please make sure to listen to this episode!
Satirist Skit - Cloud Atlas: Recycle, Reuse, Rebirth
So we are now all familiar with the soul trajectory of the important people in Cloud Atlas, but what about the common souls, what happens to them? Well, you can stop your wonderin’, because we have created this skit to fill you in on those excitin' details that got missed in the original film. So quit your yammerin’ and gibberin’ and start listenin’.
Episode 188 - Cloud Atlas
Happy Pride Month everyone! Yay! Time to break out those rainbow bricks you picked up at your local Target and smash bigotry and hate. And it’s also time to celebrate queer joy and happiness! So to celebrate we are covering Cloud Atlas, a film about the complexity of the human condition, how we are all more alike than we are different, and how love is the strongest force in the universe. It’s also created by trans artists, so that’s a win! We hope you enjoy it.
