Talk Without Rhythm Podcast

Join El Goro, part-time luchador and full-time cinephile, as he delves into the broad grassy spaces and massed granite tarns of cinema. Each episode, El Goro discusses two movies tied together by some kind of theme. Action, sci-fi, horror, high-brow, low-brow: it's all fair game.

This week on the Talk Without Rhythm Podcast I'm continuing with the Patreon Picks with a selection from TWoRP Legionnaire Steven King. Inspired by its recent appearance on The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs, Steve requested I take a look at the 1988 Zombie Buddy Cop Comedy Dead Heat. I opted to pair it with a flick from my youth watching Joe Bob's Monstervision - 1986's The Wraith

But before we get into that, Steve and I sit down with his Invasion of the Podcast co-host Paul to discuss the recent controversy surrounding Mr. Briggs, and how that fits into the ever-evolving conversation around the separation of "art" and "artist."
