    Box Office Poison: Episode 109

    Hi, folks, and welcome back to another episode of BOP! This time, Stan, Mike and Jon couldn’t make it, so we enlisted our good buddy and fellow Crosstawk host, Zach Miller, to join us. Zach’s an expert on all things dino, which is appropriate, because we kick the show off with a big discussion on Jurassic World before getting into films like Inside Out, Me & Earl & The Dying Girl and Dope.

    Then, in the second segment, Jonny and Karl discuss our pick for Movie of the Month: Bonnie and Clyde. Was the 1967 counterculture film a hit with us, or did we leave it bleeding out on the highway? You’ll have to listen in to find out! 

    Next episode will feature Post Office Poison, so please send your comments, questions and concerns to us via email (, Twitter (@crosstawk) or in the comments section on the site. Thanks for listening - we’ll see you in two weeks!

    A Thousand Words - Episode 8: The Swing

    After a much-needed vacation, the gang is back with a painting so famous, you might actually recognize it! Stan didn't, but what he doesn't know could fill all the books. This week's target is The Swing by actual 18th century artist, Jean- Honoré Fragonard.

    In this episode the crew is so scandalized by the subject matter, they suggest an alternate way to promote abstinence. And, in what is turning out to be a recurring bit, cast the painting with just the right actors.

    Box Office Poison: Episode 107

    Hello everyone, and welcome to a very speical episode of Box Office Poison, recorded during Cross-Con 2015 in Nashville, TN. The guys all got together and recorded this side by side, giving you super-fresh reviews of Tomorrowland, Mad Max: Fury Road and more before getting into some special-edition listener mail concerning the nature of being offended, gut-busting laughter and movie trailers. And to keep this monster under two hours, there's even a lightning-quick review of the Movie of the Month, The Good the Bad the Weird.

    Be sure to listen in next month when the group discusses Bonnie & Clyde. And if you have any comments, questions or concerns for BOP, please let us know via email (, Twitter (@crosstawk) and in the comments section on the website.

    Thanks for listening!
