Dirty Sons of Pitches

Ben's newest solo podcast "The Anthologist" has been running for months, but now Ben has hit a new stage where he's trying out a special edition, a full "This Meets That" podcast where he watches "One Eyed Monster" and "The Shining" and come up with an unholy horror union. The result is something Ben has excitedly been pitching for years, a porn parody of Stanley Kubrick's classic that needs to be heard to be believed.

The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" have decided to look into the filmography of a favorite director of the 2010s, Bong Joon-ho, fresh off of his Oscar victories with "Parasite." The guys will be watching his second ever film, 2003's police thriller "Memories of Murder," for this week's classic movie. For the cult movie of this week, a friend suggested that Ben and Nate watch the horror musical 2008's "Repo: The Genetic Opera," and now Ben doesn't know if he should consider this person a friend any longer.

The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" had some minor technical difficulties midway through so this week's discussion of both "Psycho" films, the 1960 original by Alfred Hitchcock and the 1998 remake from Gus van Sant, had to be recorded separately and spliced together.
