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.

Badlands2 podcast review

Over at Let’s Take Five the guys are diving into the films of Terrence Malick. It’s only fair that The Immortals do the same by reviewing his first film, Badlands. It is the story of two (very) young lovers who decide to flee across America after committing violent crimes. (I look forward to the episode of Ad Absurdum where they claim the murders in this film are illegal.) They also review the soothing sounds of Suzanne Vega, the stranger sounds of Laurie Anderson and the stupid sounds of Charmed. Get excited!

Episode #116 — Platoon / Fuzzy / Shanxi Extra Aged Vinegar / 1952 Vincent Black Lightning / Time Trumpet

Platoon podcast review
War is hell. War film are sometimes also hell, but a considerably lesser hell. Let’s get this straight: war = hell; war films = heck. And oh boy is Platoon one heck of a film. Oliver Stone’s semi-autobiographical tale of men in Vietnam is filled with impressive actors and maybe less than impressive direction. Also the gang listens to some Fuzzy, ignore some vinegar, find out that a motorcycle is pretty cool and watch an I Love the 90s parody from the creator of Veep. Get excited, it’s a short one this week!

Episode #115 — A Fish Called Wanda / Ready to Die / Sheto / Didi / The Tudors

A Fish Called Wanda podcast review

There a few components to a successful heist. Trust, patience, intelligence and a disinterest in murdering defenseless animals. Unfortunately none of these things happen in A Fish Called Wanda. But does that still make that a good movie? They also listen to Notorious B.I.G.’s seminal album, ponder what Khaled is talking about and wondering if the world really needed a sexy Henry VIII TV show. Get excited!

May the best woman win!

Episode #113 — The Act of Killing / Oracular Spectacular / Beech Honeydew / Mykonos / Jane the Virgin

The Act of Killing podcast review

Decades ago, a group of Indonesian men ruthlessly killed Chinese communists. In 2012, a documentarian invited these men to create films to depict their notorious moments in The Act of Killing. In 2018, the Immortals look back in the horror of what they’ve done. Also they review the hit album by MGMT, catch up on last week’s food and watch one of the most delightful shows on TV!
