A long time coming, sorry technical glitches and Summer time offer me acceptable excuses for the delayed release on this one.

The Futile Podcast started in 2007. So, this will be Year 10. As part of the celebration I’ll be posting what I’m calling: “Classic Combos ” and other little bonus content type things. This one is based around some movies I watched this New Year’s Day evening. The three podcasts that make up this combo were done with my good friend Mark, who has since passed, yeah I know 2016, right? Anyway, life goes on, and we will have more new shows up soon. I hope you enjoy revisiting some of these classics as much as I do.
Please send us an email: Futilepodcast@gmail.com
