Still don't know whether or not to become a Patreon patron of The Original Cast? Well, you should. But if you're on the fence, here's Robbie Rozelle and I giving you a sample as we dissect the "Original Cast Album: Co-op" episode of Documentary Now!.

This month's patrons-only episode of The Original Cast at the Movies features Robbie & I talking about the D.A. Pennebaker documentary about the making of the Company original cast album, accurately entitled: Original Cast Album: Company (1971), which is parodied in this Documentary Now! episode.

It's Saturnalia! So here's the pilot episode of a podcast Beth Amann and I created called What is Love Actually?!

What is Love Actually? Is it a simple romantic Christmas movie or is it a horrible mistake that actually killed the rom com? Well, that's what Beth Amann and Patrick Flynn are here to find out.

We're kicking it off with Solomon Parker III and Josh Simon, two millennials that have never seen Love Actually before. What will they think? What will they feel? How great were the cheese plates Beth made for the screening? You'll learn the answers to the first two questions during the episode and the third right now: they were amazing.
