Lee and Leah check out a film Leah suggested for the podcast - and a film that is a shameful blind spot in Lee's trash movie viewing - "Multiple Maniacs" (1970). It's John Waters' first talkie, and features the incomparable talents and screen presence of Divine. Is it too transgressive for its time? Is it too tame these days? Should it be embraced by the LGBTQ community despite some of the less PC content? What's a rosary job? Tune in to find out.

Lee, Daniel and Leah are back this week checking out two films featuring the talents of the lovely Glenda Farrell. First it's an example of the classic small-town boy gets taken for a sucker tale, "Dance Charlie Dance" (1937) and then they move over to a film about smart, independent female lawyers trying to make their way in a male-dominated profession, "The Law in Her Hands" (1936). Which film did a heel turn on the hosts and made them hate it? Tune in to find out. Leah and Lee also talk about what they've watched as of late.

Lee, Daniel and Leah are back to tackle Paul Thomas Anderson's lengthy epic drama from 1999, "Magnolia". What did they think about the multiple interconnected storylines and how they all came together? Did the talented ensemble cast get enough screen time in their individual parts? How does Daniel feel about a film that was once his favourite film back when he first braved a tornado warning to see it alone in a theater? Did Tom Cruise deserve his Oscar nod here? What did Leah think of the frogs raining from the sky? All of this and more in this lengthy talk about a lengthy film. Also covered: what the hosts have watched as of late.
Featured Music: "WDKK Theme" by Jon Brion & "One" by Aimee Mann.
