  1. Happy Thursday, Cassettes! Ever since the first movie based on a video game premiered in 1993, video game movies have been notoriously awful. If we asked you to come up with a "good" video game movie, what comes to mind? This week we invited Robin's husband Jacob back to discuss why these movies have such a hard time finding success with audiences and critics, and what should studios do to correct the problem. If you're interested in supporting our show, visit us on Patreon! Visit our website: for show notes and more! Thank you so much for listening!
  2. Movie trailers have undergone a huge evolution. They’ve gone from those cheesy voice-of-God narrators in the ‘80s and ‘90s, to boojes and bwaas. Professor James Deaville delivers the history of trailers, and Youtuber Craven Moorhaus offers a hilarious takedown of the sounds and dialogue that are common in the modern trailer style. After you hear this episode, you’ll never be able to watch a blockbuster trailer the same way again. Twenty Thousand Hertz is produced out of the studios of Defacto Sound and hosted by Dallas Taylor. Follow the show on Twitter & Facebook.

  3. “Selfhood is the economic engine of the Internet” – so says Jia Tolentino, staff writer at the New Yorker, and author of Trick Mirror: Reflections on Self-Delusion, a razor-sharp collection of essays examining contemporary American culture that touches on everything from the commodification of feminism and the “nightmare” of personal branding, to the similarities between religion and MDMA, and our cultural obsession with ‘the scam’. Find out how the author of one of the most talked about books of 2019 (Trick Mirror debuted on the New York Times bestseller list at #2) has been navigating the paradox of self-promotion, her take on the ubiquity of ‘girlboss culture’, and how she manages to stay sane online. Plus – some pearls of wisdom on the art of good essay writing. Buy Trick Mirror (4th Estate), out now. Find Jia Tolentino on Twitter (@jiatolentino) and Instagram (@jiatortellini).

  10. Gather around my pretties... listen to the time Gizzard was almost "Havisham-ed". This is a rough one. It might trigger nauseau and hatred if you've ever been in a relationship with a total turdface.  All jokes aside. I can tell this story , I came out of this with mental stability thanks to the love and support of some of the most amazing people that i'm lucky enough to call friends and family. This might have killed a weaker woman. Luckily my life force is fueled by hate , spite and determination to invoke regret.  I hope you can appreciate this story. A cautionary tale of almost marrying the wrong man .   *mature audiences, we aren't licensed professionals . call your mom.  We hope you enjoy. If you do, Please subscribe, rate and review.
