This week on the Talk Without Rhythm Podcast I tackle two films set in prisons featuring an allegorical Jesus Christ character and a supporting role from the late Harry Dean Stanton. Specific enough? 1967's Cool Hand Luke. 1999's The Green Mile. Rambling commentary about the state of America's Prison Industrial Complex and a rant against the death penalty.
Let's do this.

This week on the Talk Without Rhythm Podcast I'm taking a look at two made-for-TV adaptions of two of Stephen King's most celebrated (and longest) novels: 1990's IT and 1994's The Stand. And if you want more Stephen King goodness featuring yours truly, check out the latest episode of Throwdown Thursday where we discuss The Loser's Club and Pennywise and the TWoRP Aside I recorded where I am joined by Stephanie Wiley to discuss the 2017 version of IT.
So much Stephen King. So little time...

This week on the Talk Without Rhythm Podcast I'm celebrating Labor Day not just by getting drunk on a Sunday but also by discussing two movies dealing with the plight of the working man (and boy): 1978's F.I.S.T. and 1992's Newsies.
