Many a long finger is aglow in Carpetland as Siblo and Whalen continue their immersion in everything Sci Fi Spielberg!
Your Carpeteers get things going with a quick chat on some recent new theatrical new releases, including Unsane, The Death of Stalin, and Thoroughbreds (2:50). Then in Carpet Cleaning, the fellas revisit Spielberg’s iconic 80s smash E.T. The Extra Terrestrial, with the help of Ryan Williams from the Fringe Drinking podcast (20:50). And finally, they return to the Carpet curriculum to discuss the extremely expensive, unfairly maligned 2005 alien actioner War of the Worlds (53:00).
Are you a child of the 80s who has recently revisited E.T. as an adult? How did it hold up for you? Are you, like Siblo and Whalen, a War of the Words truther? What new theaterical releases have you enthused? Unfurl your takes on these questions or on anything at all film related at firstname.lastname@example.org, on Twitter (@theradcarpet), on our Facebook page, or on Instagram. We do love hearing from you, and there’s a better than decent chance that we can work in what you have to say on the air!
This weekend marks the premier of Spielberg’s new film, Ready Player One. We’ll be punching our tickets, with a new episode coming hot at your podcatcher early next week. Stay tuned–and stay very rad!
