In the first episode of this adjunct series to the Futile Podcast, aptly titled Postponed in Los Angeles (PiLA).

Erik, and Ian discuss season 1 of Game of Thrones in preparation for the premiere of season 2. Erik has read the book series so he talks briefly about the TV adaption, and possible directions season 2, and future season could take. Mild spoilers beyond season 1, obvious spoilers for season 1. That’s why Joshua had to leave.

I know it’s chicken shit dividing up the final podcast so it all can be 300 but I don’t care. Part a.  is Ian (that’s been me this whole time) and Mark talking about the seminal cops and robbers movie Heat. Like the movie, it’s a long one so it’ll be good for holiday drive time.

This is a good movie and a pretty solid podcast from Joshua and Ian (me).  I have to admit that I enjoyed this film much more on a second viewing when it was further removed from dashed expectations.

"Thank you, there are only 13 shows left."
