The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are recording on the 4th of July and celebrating a country that allows for such bizarre and wonderful movies like "Swiss Army Man." In honor of that indie gem, the guys are pitching movies featuring prominent dead bodies and engage in a discussion over what movies they would want to take with them if stranded on a desert island. Along the way the guys talk about when erectile dysfunction may save the universe, whether Jagger and Bowie were getting it on during their music video shoot, the legal loopholes involved with the Purge, and whether or not modern pornography can be saved from its violent, female-unfriendly territory dominating the landscape. It's an eye-opening podcast.
Available on iTunes.
