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:

AND you can follow me on Twitter: @ian.strope where you can do the #FPX all year round. Cause that’s fun, right?


Thank you for listening.
