From the ashes of Trashpect Ratio, Em and Kyle return years later to offer a new vision for movie podcasts with Repertory Screenings! Join them every month for a double feature of films, conversation, and criticism between two friends who desperately need to catch up and will do so through a stack of movies.
Repertory Screenings’ new relaunch kicks off with the most obvious and delightful choice of them all, Citizen Kane! We discuss the ups and downs of the life of Charles Kane, the gaps in anyone’s story, and the preponderance of special effects for a story about a guy who does the god damn news. Citizen Kane gets two thumbs up! Thank you so much for listening, please tell all your friends about us!

Abnormal Mapping is doing a movie podcast again! After running one for a couple years in the distant, distant past, and a recent attempt waylaid by scheduling woes, a slot has opened up in the Abnormal Mapping schedule by Star Trek being bad enough that we don’t want to talk about it anymore. So Em and Jackson decided it was time to talk about movies instead, and they’re joined by Destiny Sturdivant. Not in this preview though, because her microphone was broken.
Here’s the plan. The podcast is biweekly, and hopefully on the shorter side, as we take everyone on a journey through the movies that you always meant to see, but never got around to. In the same way that you don’t have to be already into video games to appreciate Abnormal Mapping, our aim is to make this an accessible podcast - you do not have to be a seasoned cinephile to listen.
Repertory Screenings settles in for a messy pair of relationships as we explore the ragged edges of the middle age romcom Enough Said and then struggle against the feverish fatalism of Querelle! It's a whole thing.
The first episode is here! Em and Kyle talk about the future of Bond and the past of performance with a double feature of fading hopes and improbable romance.
