We're back this week with a review of Robert Rodriguez's Desperado, which has nothing to do with the song by the Eagles, as far as we can tell. Plus, we're joined by Pop Culture Happy Hour's Glen Weldon to chat about the Movie That Made Him, and we'll help you make the most of this holiday season by suggesting some excellent, sophisticated movie/food pairings.
For next week's show, we'll be watching Olympus Has Fallen, which is available now on Netflix Watch Instant.
Biz and Theresa get so sentimental talking about moms and motherhood that we decide to go straight to the source and call our own moms. (Oh, yeah -- and we spend some time blaming/threatening our husbands for not doing enough for us on Mother's Day! Of course.)

Just because Christmas has come and gone doesn't mean the holidays are over. This year, Dave Shumka of Stop Podcasting Yourself is hosting CBC Radio 3's All-Star Tribute to Sweaters. It features great moments in sweater history, some lessons on what a sweater is and isn't, and sweater talk with Dan Werb of Woodhands and Steve Bays of Hot Hot Heat.
