About The Immortals Podcast

The Immortals podcast

The Immortals is a podcast about five ancient individuals who have been cursed with immortality by the old gods and Bethany. The only way to break the curse is to complete their 1001 tasks which happen to be from the 1001 Movies / Albums / Foods / Songs  / TV Shows You Must Consume Before You Die books.

Every week join Pedro Aubry,  Austin Lugar, Leigh Montano and Sarah Staudt as they review a randomly selected set with their own unique perspective filled with humor and insight. You can see their henge ratings here and their average ratings here. They score everything on a scale from 0-5 henges. Because they’re old.

You can subscribe to the show on iTunes, Downcast or however you listen to podcasts. Or you can listen here every week and give your comments on the topics they talk about. We love to hear your feedback.

Also, let us know if you can help us find some of the missing items! You will be our heroes.

Episode #105 — Steamboat Bill, Jr. / Olympia 64 / Longan / How High the Moon / Canzonissima

Steamboat Bill Jr podcast review

The episode is finally out! We’re sorry for the delay but there was an insane hurricane that kept knocking down all of our buildings. Oh wait, no sorry, that was the silent film Steamboat Bill, Jr. They also listen to an older French album, a nifty song that was popularized by an Ella Fitzgerald cover and some shitty grapes! (They aren’t grapes.)

Episode #104 — Inception / Sound of Silver / Lekvar / Flux / The 100

Inception podcast review

The greatest virus in an idea, according to Christopher Nolan’s Inception. Then enjoy as we present you a series of ideas directly into your ear holes. We will make you believe his film is actually a dissection into filmmaking, we will make you want to go to an LCD Soundsystem concert, we will have you believe that lekvar is not available where we are, we will have you believe the Bloc Party music video is coherent and we may even convince you that The 100 was described properly. But the real question is…..when did you start listening to this show? Think about it. I know you’re here now, but when did you get here?

Episode #103 — Gimme Shelter / Number of the Beast / Ptarmigan / Boys Don’t Cry / Sliders

Gimme Shelter podcast review

What are The Immortals if not the foremost experts on rocking and the follow-up action of rolling? Today they are diving into one of the most beloved rockumentaries, Gimme Shelter, covering a memorable tour by The Rolling Stones. Then they have Iron Maiden screaming to Satan, a music video so good it seems like a short film and then they end with….Sliders. Which does technically have a musician as one of the leads. (He doesn’t rock though.)

Episode #102 — Days of Heaven / California / Holy Basil / Im Nin’Alu / Takeshi’s Castle

Days of Heaven podcast review

Terence Malick makes beautiful films that are known for their peaceful aesthetic and calming atmosphere. So of course we argued about it. The Immortals reviewed the Days of Heaven, Malick’s second film, which takes place in Texas. Then they went to California, Israel and Japan. We’re so cultured!

Episode #101 — Grease / The Real Thing / Chives / Voices Carry / Top Gear

Grease podcast review

OH MY GOD WE’RE BACK AGAIN! After surviving Leigh crashing their space ship, the four Immortals are hiding on [REDACTED] and back to reviewing so many very random pieces of pop culture. And there’s no better movie about coming back from break and realizing everything is bonkers and this plot doesn’t make any sense than Grease! Also we have a band who is apparently not the Red Hot Chili Peppers, we confirm chives are weird, we know what not to do at the opera in a music video and we talk about a car show but never really talk about cars. Get excited!

Episode #100 — The Lion King / Urban Hymns / Bagel / Spice Up Your Life / The Spirit Wind / Treme

The Lion King podcast review

HOLY CRAP! It’s Episode 100! It’s been two years and over 500 reviews. This shall be a very special episode for a number of reasons. (Mostly because Austin got new shoes.) Join us as The Immortals continue their voyage through space for some ridiculous reason as they review The Lion King, some more emo British music, bagels, the Spice Girls, ignore the actual book to talk about Lemony Snicket, and an underseen David Simon HBO show. Also, the bonus review is Austin’s favorite movie!

Be sure you listen to the episode to the very end. Be sure to follow us on Twitter for all updates. Thank you all for listening for the first 100 episodes. Only 901 to go!

Episode #99 — North by Northwest / Young Americans / Paski Sir / Theme from Shaft / Oh, the Places You’ll Go / Farmer Wants a Wife

North By Northwest podcast review

In Alfred Hitchcock’s North by Northwest, there is a very simple message. If you don’t want to have international assassins and criminals trying to murder you in beautiful locales, don’t be a dick to your waiter. Lessons to live by. Also we have David Bowie this episode, the return of Shaft and the review of the book every graduate receives whether they want it or not.

Episode #98 — Wings of Desire / Teenager of the Year / Cassareep / Enter Sandman / Eclipse of the Crescent Moon / Forbrydelsen (The Killing)

Wings of Desire podcast review

There are angels among us! THERE ARE ANGELS AMONG US! Sorry, I’ve been catching up with Night Vale. The Immortals are just reviewing the beautiful film Wings of Desire where an angel wishes to be human. They also listen to Frank Black, Metallica, and watch the Danish version of The Killing. (Yes, Borgen was mentioned.)

Episode #97 — Midnight Cowboy / Dare! / Squid Ink / Shot By Both Sides / The Little White Horse / Riget (The Kingdom)

Midnight Cowboy podcast review

The Immortals review the Best Picture winner Midnight Cowboy which features the character Ratso Rizzo, who is often mistaken for a Muppet or a Pink Lady. This is the homeless sick guy who is trying to help pimp out his friend. Easy to confuse them all. Anywho, the gang also reviews some more stuff!

Episode #96 — M / Pet Sounds / Duku / Tuttie Frutti / Moomin, Mymble and Little My / Dr. Kildaire

M podcast review

Peter Lorre is often remembered as being the creepy but harmless guy in Casablanca and The Maltese Falcon. Yet years before those movies, he played a really complicated role as a murderer of children in M. And we’re going to review it! Also, one of the most beloved albums of all time, a super catchy song and a melodramatic medical drama. Get excited! Also Adam’s missing because he’s losing his mind but don’t worry about that.
