31 – Delicatessen (1991)

This week Sophie & Mitch watched the cult French film Delicatessen (1991).

Ho-boy what a movie: an apartment building full of weirdos atop a butcher shop after some sort of apocalypse. It’s super odd, super French, and super fun. If you need more strangeness this Halloween, this is the movie for you.

42 – Mummies Alive! p.2 w. Dustin Meisinger

Continuing our adventure into the 1997 series Mummies Alive!, Dustin Meisinger joins us to explore what ancient Egypt was really like.

We also discuss merchandizing ideas, circuitous poisons, and how easy it is to work up a protest or two when it comes to your local Egypt museum.

Make sure to message Dustin on Twitter about all of your Mummies Alive! theories and questions.

Also check out our NEWEST SHOW for Collective Legacy: We Watch Food – a podcast about food TV, movies, and YouTube channels every Saturday.

25 – Mummies Alive! p.1 w. Sophie Gareau-Brennan

Sophie Gareau-Brennan & I begin a possible new chapter in the WenghTalk story: retrospectives on obscure 90’s cartoons like Mummies Alive!

We address how ridiculous all of this is, how this was an era of cartoons long forgotten (even to those who were kids when it happened), and the impossible economics of the museum that Presley’s mom works for.

So if you remember this series, please let us know! It is incredibly difficult to find & I would LOVE to continue through this gem of a cartoon.
