When a listener dedicates a podcast commission to his late wife, you treat it with respect. When the movie is about death and the afterlife, you add a degree of reverence. When one of your podcast hosts is dealing with a recent loss, you take the whole thing personally. And when Albert Brooks is the romantic lead, you have to throw all of that out the window.

"Defending You Life" is a 1991 romantic comedy destined for a good shatting, and it treated the Shat Crew to some lively discussion of past lives, simpler times, biggest fears, and crimes against Meryl Streep. The podcast also took us to places we never imagined we'd go: highlighting the difference between Albert Brooks and Larry David, worshipping Rip Torn and earnestly drawing parallels between purgatory's legal proceedings and Franz Kafka.
