When Dax and Odo find a techno-donut, it’s only the first clue in a very Star Trek mystery. Back on the station, Jake gets his first job and Quark tries to Job Kira while Vedek Bareil tries to get a ‘job. Could Odo Riker an ankylosaur? Why are the Bjorans so willing to give up the jumja? What’s a good ratio of walls to holes? It’s the episode that shucks before it shaves.

Wake In Fright

This week the gang is lucky enough to be joined by Britain's own, "The Beef and Dairy Network Podcast" host, Ben Partridge. It's a staff choice episode this week, and this time it's April's pick. She chose the 1971 Australian psychological thriller, Wake In Fright. The gang takes apart the film and what makes it so relevant to today's society. Alonso even calls it "toxic masculinity, the movie." The film can be a bit brutal and the crew makes sure to touch upon those elements, including the infamous kangaroo hunting scene. Plus, in celebration of having a beef expert on the show, the gang discusses eating meat in cinema. This segment is obviously titled "Weird Meat."

In news, Jeremy Renner broke both his arms shooting Tag, Brett Ratner is telling people he's directing Rush Hour 4, and Benedict Cumberbatch protects a cyclist from muggers.

Weekly Movie Recommendations:

Ricky - Jewel's Catch One
Benjamin - The Girl With All The Gifts
April - Hereditary
Alonso - Alex Strangelove

PLUS, we have two Spotify playlists. One is for Movie Soundtracks and the other is for Movie Scores. Check 'em out!

Next week we're discussing Ocean's 8 with Bowen Yang & Matt Rogers of Las Culturistas

With Alonso Duralde, April Wolfe, Benjamin Partridge and Ricky Carmona.

Ross and Carrie and Travis Make Running Harder: Elevation Training Mask Edition

| 0 comments

Ross and Carrie invite their friend Travis McElroy over for a classic friendship activity: running through Carrie's neighborhood with a mask that makes you look like you're about to rob a bank. But not just any old, scary mask. This one restricts your oxygen intake, making breathing difficult, and causing rubber to stick to your sweaty face. Don't worry, it's good for you! (Apparently.)

Deep Rising

Rarely do we get a PhD. level academic on the show to discuss horror, but we got one this week! It's writer, director, professor and 'Shock Waves' podcast host Rebekah McKendry. She's on to discuss the underseen Deep Rising. She details her connection to aquatic horrors, dating back to her childhood growing up next to a river infested with alligator gars. April and her "dive" into what separates Deep Rising from all the other late '90's disaster/monster movies. Rebekah also divulges what goes into her filmmaking process; creating characters, directing actors, and designing creatures. To quote the tagline of this film - "Full scream ahead!"

Shock Waves is available wherever you listen to podcasts.
