The Flop House is a comedy podcast devoted to the worst in recent film. Your hosts (Elliott Kalan, Dan McCoy, and Stuart Wellington) watch a questionable film, then engage in an unscripted discussion about the movie's shortcomings and occasional delights, while never being afraid of a pointless, silly digression or two hundred.
 
I, Podius is a twelve episode weekly series in which hosts John Hodgman and Elliott Kalan recap the BBC miniseries I, Claudius, an adaptation of Robert Graves’ I, Claudius and Claudius the God. John's watched the show before. Elliott's watching for the first time. The miniseries features an obscenely talented ensemble cast, and is – chock full of sex, backstabbing and murder. This ain't your daddy's I, Claudius. Well, actually it is as the series premiered in 1976. But this ain't your daddy' ...

On Feeling Seen, writer and general enthusiast Jordan Crucchiola invites filmmakers, writers, comedians, and artists to discuss the movie characters that made them "feel seen." It's about that instant when a person connects to a piece of art so deeply that they see themselves reflected in it. Every week Jordan gabs it up with a guest about those magical moments when they were watching a film and realized, "That's me!" It's an informative, funny, and comforting show about our intimate relatio ...

Proud progenitor of #thegreatpodcastswindle. Since 2012, Jonah Ray, Neil Mahoney and Cash Hartzell have argued, laughed, loved and gradually cut back on their drinking all while loosely discussing and playing submitted music. The three man team, often with a guest, sometimes without, are constantly pushing boundaries in the medium of "music news" Not since Rolling Stone introduced us to the New Journalism of Tom Wolfe and Hunter S. Thompson has a medium given rise to an artistic movement mor ...

Writer (The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, Mystery Science Theater 3000, Maniac of New York) and co-host of the The Flop House Elliott Kalan has loved film and New York City almost all his life.

Episode 375 is ALIVE! We keep raiding Blank Check for some of our finest guest stars, which is why it was only a matter of time before we'd add "America's finest film critic," Ben Hosley, to that list. And Ben asked if he could do "that stupid robot movie from the 80's," and following a brief round of "Is THIS the Film?, Dan figured out that Ben wa…
 
Greta Gerwig’s solo directorial debut tells the story of Lady Bird (nee Christine) in her final year of high school – dabbling with not just a new name, but also new boys, new hobbies, pushing the boundaries of her old relationships, and somehow disappointing her mother just by being herself (and applying to out-of-state colleges). Relatable much? …

W. Kamau Bell (United Shades of America, We Need to Talk about Cosby) has carved out his own, personalized niche in media, a blend of comedy, documentary, and community.

Somehow one of the most boring movies we've EVER covered on the show + Dan recovering from Covid-19 = an especially raucous episode of The Flop House. We suddenly remembered that we could watch horror movies during months that AREN'T October, so we decided to make the ultimate sacrifice to watch Firestarter -- we signed up for Peacock. Did we regre…

As Kristen Meinzer (Movie Therapy, By the Book, Romance Road Test) observes, Anne of Green Gables does something relatively rare in media: it centers the story of an adopted heroine. Growing up in Minnesota, there were many aspects of Anne Shirley’s character than Kristen saw in herself, for better and worse. She and Jordan unpack that, get meta ab…

The Mixed-Review House rolls on with Kenneth Branagh's second outing as Hercule Poirot, Death on the Nile.

After a too-long hiatus, Nathan and Clint are back, with a new episode and new approach! Since Travolta and Cage's output are going to, well, dramatically differ in pace in the most recent decade of their careers, we're gonna double up on Cage movies, and let Travolta catch up as we reach the years he puts out new flicks. But that also gives us tim…
 
Rebeca Huntt’s debut feature is a personal documentary that, even through its specificity, tells a story that is familiar to many but rarely depicted on screen. So it follows that when she thought hard about what character made her feel seen, no one character jumped out. But the ones that she named – Frances Ha, Poetic Justice, Lady Bird, Matilda –…

Growing up, writer/producer Ali Schouten-Seeks saw herself as a total Kathleen Kelly (that is, Meg Ryan’s quirky character from YOU’VE GOT MAIL). But as she got older, she began to learn the value of owning even those quirks that some would have women tamp down…much like Sally Albright in WHEN HARRY MET SALLY (also Meg Ryan, of course). Only on FEE…

When he was a kid growing up in Beverly Hills, writer/director Christopher Landon (DISTURBIA, FREAKY, HAPPY DEATH DAY) watched MOMMIE DEAREST with his older sister, on repeat. The 1981 film is now a camp classic, and Faye Dunaway's Joan Crawford is, to put it mildly, over-the-top. But on today's show, Chris tells us why he sees himself in the chara…
