Dirty Sons of Pitches

The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" were unable to record this week but in their stead enjoy one of the angriest, most analytical podcasts yet from Ben and George on their "Saturday Night Jive" podcast where they review bad and strange movies starring SNL alums. This week they tackle the epic badness that is 2007's "Epic Movie" and the comedy curse that are Friedberg & Seltzer, writers and directors that confuse references with jokes. Get ready for the pain and enjoy the frustrating and disbelief as Ben and George try and make sense of the madness.
