It's another big week here at What's That Smell? HQ. First and foremost, AND by popular demand, we've finally created bespoke playlists of the music of this show. The Music of What's That Smell? You might (but you'd be forgiven if you didn't) know that we source all our music from the fine artists and catalog at Artlist. But that's a subscription s…
 
The last year has been traumatic. For all of us. In some way or another, we've been impacted by COVID and it's upended our lives. We're talking about transitions on the show in this series and coming to terms with the change we've endured in the last 18 months will be important in defining what we want the coming years to look like. As inspiration,…
 
Tommy Metz leads the crew of Steve Sarmento and Rob Kubasko this week in his very first hosting gig. In a follow up to last week, the team is pretty excited about the news of Only Murderers in the Building leading to one massive question: will anyone want to still live in the building? Apple's September announcements bring word of a new "Cinematic …
 
Two Directors With a Shared Voice for Horror Directing duos are rare, but it may be a completely unique situation to have a directing duo be an aunt/nephew pair. That’s the case with Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala, the writers/directors of Goodnight Mommy. When they realized they shared a love for horror films, this duo decided to pursue it and t…
 
John Cena and Aaron Taylor-Johnson are stuck at the wall, and together with Laith Nakli’s voice we have a film about relationships and the power of words — and weapons — to navigate war in The Wall. It’s an intimate film from director Doug Liman and writer Dwain Worrell that trucks in confusion, suspense, and facing a threat on the ground in a time…
 
It's September... you've probably seen back-to-school commercials on TV, heard school updates on the radio and seen store aisles littered with colorful school supplies. Back-to-school (or, in some cases, already-in-school) is in full effect. Yet, heading "back to school" isn't just about getting kids the right notebooks and pencils. It's also about…
 
Hey, you... how's your crypto? A real roller coaster, huh? Prolly want a guy like Mr. White Hat on your side. Also, maybe, don't use crypto if you want to fight the anxiety. Tom did a little traveling a few weeks back and the trip was fine. Oh, wait. No it wasn't. The friends were nice but the trip itself was a damned nightmare of travel anxiety. T…
 
Changing gears is hard with ADHD. Moving from one thing to the next can feel like a chore and the range of emotions is wide. Distracted by too many options and moving too quickly? Stuck in hyperfocus and angry or frustrated that you're being shocked into a transition too soon? That's the point today. Moving from one state to the next, one activity …
 
Happy Saturday, Movie Lovers! Pete, Kyle, and Tommy are here to ring in the week's end with talk of movies and TV on the offing. First and foremost, Malignant is coming, and some of us are leaving here and heading right over to the Film Board to talk about it. Tom and Kyle have thoughts on the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise and which films are w…
 
While Gloria Katz and Willard Huyck wrote the script for American Graffiti for their USC chum George Lucas, they were working on a low budget horror film that they would produce, write, and direct together. This film was Messiah of Evil. Unfortunately for them, the producers took it away before they could finish filming. The producers hastily cut t…
 
Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer in women worldwide. In the US, Black women are 40% more likely than white women to be diagnosed. In today's episode, EFG's Alli Murphy is joined by two leaders working together to combat this issue - Sarah Rosales Vice President, Corporate Partnerships at Susan G. Komen and Jim Peters, Head of Partner…
 
The Nose Knows Anxiety Get ready, because VistaGen Therapeutics (a pharma company straight out of a Michael Crichton book), is on the verge of helping you out of your social anxiety with the same tech used to fight your pollen allergy. Right now it's called PH94B, so we're not talking about one of those sexy-sexy Sunday morning TV ad names quite ye…
 
People say they grow tired of superhero origin stories, but when Marvel delivers a knockout like Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, they change their mind. Perhaps that’s because the story Marvel delivers here, under the direction of Destin Daniel Cretton, allows for the story to take precedence, regardless of the fact that it’s the twenty-…
 
We're continuing our family series on the podcast with our dear friends Elaine Taylor-Klaus and Diane Dempster of Impact Parents. Together, they have taken their ADHD coaching and evolved their work into an incredible resource for parents raising complex kids. Independence starts today The rock-climbing metaphor is striking. Every move toward indep…
 
Mandy Kaplan leads Mandy Fabian and Pete Wright on a matinée journey this morning as we talk news, trailers, games, and a list of terrific movies celebrating our older performers. But we start where all good SatMats start, with a discussion of major stars who have turned down Marvel roles for one reason or another. Tom Cruise? Emily Blunt? Yup, the…
 
How Does Heckerling’s Biggest Hit Hold Up 30+ Years Later? It’s funny looking back on writer/director Amy Heckerling’s 1989 romantic comedy Look Who’s Talking now and thinking that studios thought it was too sexual for the genre or that women couldn’t carry a comedy like this. Heckerling has said that she had to pitch the film as a talking baby voi…
 
In today's episode, EFG's Alli Murphy is joined by Scott Beaudoin, Executive Vice President of Social Purpose and Sustainability at Brodeur Partners, a global strategic communications firm. Broder Partners is a sponsor of Engage for Good and has a wealth of knowledge in this space... Scott alone has more than 20 years of experience in the field and…
 
The Book of Henry is not the film any of us expected. This is a film that splits audiences - including JJ, Steve and Tommy. JJ says it is at least 3 or 4 films. Special guest Tommy doesn’t rate it as much of a film. And Steve was thoroughly enjoying this YA story about a precocious 12 year old . . and then it took a turn. Is this film for you? With…
 
How do you funny? We welcome this first episode back of season six with a journey to HuRL, University of Colorado's Humor Research Laboratory. We're both graduates of University of Colorado and, just so we're clear, no one ever introduced us to the Humor Research Laboratory, or this show might be funnier. How funny? Check out this passage from the …
 
We're continuing our conversations on ADHD and family relationships on The ADHD Podcast with a discussion on teens. "But wait," you might be thinking, "I'm no teen... what do I need with this episode?" Just hang with us a bit. We're talking to the authors of Mindfulness and Self-Compassion for Teen ADHD, Drs. Karen Bluth and Mark Bertin, a book not…
 
When we set out to produce season three of Mission Forward, we wanted to document this season of what we called perspective-shifting conversations. We wanted to touch on faith. We wanted to touch on media. We wanted to touch on the economy and the role of philanthropy in building back from a period of such damage from the impact of COVID-19. Right …
 
Happy Saturday, movie lovers. Let's get started. Ocean is here and he doesn't care about James Bond. And so, we're going to spend about seven minutes talking about it as news hits that in fact, casting for the double-O is up in the air again and it seems like rumors of a woman in the lead are being dashed. In our weekly Ted Lasso check-in, Tommy re…
 
The producer of Real Genius, Brian Grazer, approached director Martha Coolidge a number of times, trying to convince her to direct the film. From Coolidge’s perspective, the script just wasn’t there. It was a juvenile, teen male-oriented comedy and just wasn’t her thing. But Grazer wouldn’t give up. He wanted Coolidge as director for Real Genius so…
 
For the last bonus episode of Season 10, we’ve pulled a great episode out of the archives for you in which Dan Goldenberg, Executive Director for Call of Duty Endowment and Vice President at Activision Blizzard talks all about their Halo-Award-winning effort HireHonor.

We started our conversation with Dr. Norrine Russell with a plan in mind. We wanted to talk with her about the systems and processes she uses with her clients at Russell Coaching to support frustrated kids and families living with ADHD. She told us she'd be fine with that, but then said, "can I tell you what's on my mind?" What was on her mind is s…
 
It's National Senior Citizens Day! To all of our elder listeners, we salute you. Rob leads the charge in a love fest of the Ted Lasso Holiday episode. Pete has some follow-up enthusiasm including this EW video in which Brendan Hunt covers the off-side rule with Brett Goldstein, and this Variety video in which we learn that Juno Temple is a tiny cuc…
 
Director Amy Heckerling obviously did something right with her first feature film, Fast Times at Ridgemont High. For Heckerling’s second feature film, she had almost double the budget that she had before. Considering her second film was a period film, that likely helped. Now it may seem that Johnny Dangerously was a strange choice after her first f…
 
Joanna Hogg’s 2019 film The Souvenir is based on her own experiences as a student filmmaker in the 1980s. This leads JJ and Steve to again ponder the question of whether such a personal story can be fully accessible to an audience. They are sharply divided on their ratings, but agree that this isn’t a film for everyone. Listen in to the episode to …
 
Like last week, today’s episode is a re-run and we’re talking about JetBlue's corporate disaster response and initiatives with JetBlue’s VP of CSR and DEI, Icema Gibbs. Why? Because this episode featuring JetBlue is one of our all-time most popular episodes and because the topic is timely as we traverse through wildfire season, hurricane season and…
 
Today on the show we're talking to the kids. Ok, not all the kids. We're starting with our kids, because they're ours, they live with ADHD, and they're pretty astute humans.There are some things they want the rest of us to know about their experience with ADHD that might just surprise you. What the Kids can Teach about ADHD There are a few things t…

Special thanks to Mandy Kaplan, Jeremy Klavens, Justine Huxley, Tara Sands, Everett Jaeger, and Justin Jaeger for their support and participation as our trailer voice cast.

Tommy loves White Lotus. It's all he can talk about. Of course, if you're a Mike White fan, you might share his fascination with it. I might have to crank a little Chuck & Buck just cause I'm thinking about it. Andy isn't watching enough. But he is digging Marvel's What If? and does his part to lobby for more Agent Carter. Mandy is cracking through…
 
The story of Valley Girl is simply another Romeo & Juliet type of tale, but director Martha Coolidge captured a lot more in her film. The movie depicts an authentic look at life as a teenager in the early 80s, particularly the culture that grew out of Valley Speak and the whole concept of what a ‘valley girl’ represented, not just in the San Fernan…
 
The next three Cause Talk Radio episodes will be reruns of some fantastic interviews that are timely for one reason or another. We’ll come back on September 1 with new episodes each Wednesday. Today’s episode is about men's mental health. Why? Mental health has become much more of an open topic during and post-pandemic. One of the brands that has b…
 
Before we went on The ADHD Podcast annual July break, we posted a question to you: What do you do to keep your family running? Living with ADHD inside the complex organism that is your family, we wanted to know what kinds of systems you have in place to keep the trains on time as best you can, together. ADHD Family Solutions You answered! We groupe…
 
We're back from our long July slumber with a new game, news, trailers, and a list of movies celebrating teachers who are just... the... worst. Steve has a report on 'No Way Home' — have you heard the rumors he's been unable to substantiate? Apparently, according to Kevin Feige, there's trailer news about the new Spider-Man entry that might point to…
 
Cameron Crowe already had success as a writer when he went undercover and posed as a high school student to write his book “Fast Times at Ridgemont High: A True Story.” Of course, he was high school age so it made perfect sense, and perhaps that’s why the film adapted from his book feels so authentic of the time and of these youths portrayed. And p…
 
JJ and Steve travel back to 1995. That time when landlines were ubiquitous and had yet surrendered to the internet, cell phones and texting. Although Landline is from 2017, it feels like a close relative to the mid-90s indie film scene that was bursting onto the festival circuit at the time. Landline has an amazing cast: Jenny Slate, Jay Duplass, J…
 
As we kick off our twenty-third season of Taking Control: The ADHD Podcast, we're looking at families. These are some of the closest relationships we have in our lives — we live with them, eat with them, play with them, sleep with them — but how does ADHD contribute to our family relationships? This week, Dr. Michelle Frank returns to introduce us …
 
The Roads Not Taken is the third in a trio of films about taking care of an adult relative. JJ really struggled with it, in part due to his own experiences with similar situations. Steve, on the other hand, found his own way to make connections and sense out of it. Both agree that it’s a challenging film to watch. Writer/director Sally Potter put t…
 
The Film Board finds itself in the Red Room as we discuss Cate Shortland’s new entry into the MCU, Black Widow.

Shea talks about Hustle's origin story, their giveback program - Hustle…
 
The Endless treads into some creepy territory, so JJ brought in some backup. We are pleased to have Tommy join us for our discussion of this story of two brothers that escaped from a weird death cult. Is it a cult, or just a commune of people that like being off the grid? Is this a horror film or a sci-fi film? Can it be both? The Endless had a ver…
 
According to this week's guest, "the word community has been co-opted to something that is a lie." While we might have a shared convention of community, when we use the word, our differences begin to rise to the surface. Our language is littered with words like this — family, culture, and yes, community — words that require us to stop, reflect, and…
 
Ten years ago EFG's Megan Strand and Selfish Giving's Joe Waters started a podcast - Cause Talk Radio, to be specific. Today's episode is a little different. Instead of interviewing a guest, it's a transition episode. Megan is headed off to her next professional adventure and is retiring from the podcast. So today, Megan, Alli and Joe come together…
 
Identity was James Mangold’s first opportunity to direct a film based on a script he didn’t write. The screenplay, written by Michael Cooney, was inspired by Agatha Christie’s “And Then There Were None,” but adds some twists to the story that take it in a new direction. Mangold was immediately attracted to the material because he relished the oppor…
 
We all know it takes an extraordinary individual to launch and sustain a purpose-focused business but this episode's guest, Leeatt Rothschild, takes this to an entirely new level because not only is she a successful social entrepreneur, she launched her business when she was 7 months pregnant with twins. Packed With Purpose is the company Leeatt fo…
