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.

To that end, we'll be discussing 1989's Meet the Feebles and 1996's The Frighteners.
