But anyway, in this episode, me and my friend Phil Sagan talk about "final films" from directors that passed away, what drives a director that's approaching the end of his career, and what are our fa...

    In our eighth special episode, we join the crew of the Nostromo and go into space where no one can hear us scream. But as a Halloween treat, we do take a look at one particular scene where one of our characters is looking for the alien in a dark and humid air duct. So listen to me as I analyze that scene and why it works!

      Hosted by Laura Beil (Dr. Death, Bad Batch), Sympathy Pains is a six-part series from Neon Hum Media and iHeartRadio. For 20 years, Sarah Delashmit told people around her that she had cancer, muscular dystrophy, and other illnesses. She used a wheelchair and posted selfies from a hospital bed. She told friends and coworkers she was trapped in abusive relationships, or that she was the mother of children who had died. It was all a con. Sympathy was both her great need and her powerful weapon. But unlike most scams, she didn’t want people’s money. She was after something far more valuable.
