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 / Children’s Books / TV Shows You Must Consume Before You Die books.

Every week join Pedro Aubry, Adam Lord, 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.

Episode #77 — Unforgiven / Vanishing Point / San Francisco Sourdough / Devil’s Haircut / The Cay / Borgen

Unforgiven podcast review

Having found their way into the Old Gods’ library, The Immortals unpack their understanding of Unforgiven, verify the value of Vanishing Point, savor the sponge of Sourdough, dissect the dalliance of Devil’s Haircut, consider color in The Cay, and break into Belgian politics in Borgen. OK, Borgen is about Danish politics, but alliterations are hard…and so is The Immortals’ next plan to escape the Old Gods’ realm!

Episode #76 — Blade Runner / I Do Not Want What I Haven’t Got / Fresh Green Peppercorn / Just Like Heaven / Clockwork / LOST

Blade Runner podcast review

No more time for silliness! The Immortals have some important reviews on their docket including the beloved sci-fi classic Blade Runner and the beloved sci-fi classic LOST. Also an early album by Sinead O’Connor, absent food, a poppy song by The Cure and an underread story by Philip Pullman. But the biggest question of all is…will anybody get Austin a chair?

Mrs Miniver podcast review

For those of you who are new to the show, welcome! This is a review show were five immortals review things! And this is the episode where they go back in time to the 80s and be extra silly. Also they still review the Best Picture winner Mrs. Miniver, the surprising album Happy Trails, eat some pea shoots, don’t give no lip to no child, debate culture in picture books and say McCloud a lot. Enjoy! And if you’re confused, don’t worry about it!

Episode #74 — The Firemen’s Ball / Group Sex / Telline de Camargue / Wondrous Stories / The Family from One End Street / Red Shoe Diaries

The Firemen's Ball podcast review

The Immortals have given up on their exploration of the Old Gods’ realm and resigned themselves to eternity, until an unexpected visitor upends their spot! But before that, they attend a rather droll The Firemen’s Ball, have Group Sex (not really, but who could resist the implication?), really struggle to enjoy and pronounce Telline de Camargue, savor some Wondrous Stories, talk about another rag-tag group of Britons in The Family from One End Street, and get reeeal seamy with Red Shoe Diaries.

Episode #73 — High Noon / Can’t Buy A Thrill / Cornichon / Tears of a Clown / The Dreams of the Toad / The Gong Show

High Noon podcast review

The Immortals continue their exploration of the Old Gods’ realm, finding rooms that would be too ridiculous to believe if they didn’t ACTUALLY in REAL LIFE see them! And of course, they still find time to relay their lukewarm opinion of High Noon, their realization that maybe you Can’t Buy A Thrill, their love/hate relationship with vinegar and Cornichon, their “glass half full” attitude toward Tears of a Clown, their unwillingness to learn Spanish, and their increasing ennui with the beloved Gong Show. Next week promises to have some exciting developments in the Old Gods realm, but who knows?! We’ve been wrong before and we’ll do it again!

Episode #72 — Children of Paradise / Bitches Brew / Hop Shoot / People Get Ready / Children’s Garden of Verses / The Waltons

Children of Paradise podcast review

The Immortals are back! You would think that being so worldly, they would have the means to get good theatre seats but they usually end up with the Children of Paradise. Which is the movie they’re reviewing this week! Also they have some of the tasty Bitches Brew, ignore the hops, get entranced by some People Get Ready, talk about Snookie more than you would expect and say goodnight to John-Boy. All in one episode! Whoo!

Episode #71 — Young Frankenstein / I Against I / Andouillle de Vire / Black Metal / Doraemon / Walking with Dinosaurs

Young Frankenstein podcast review

The Immortals return and they don’t notice the connection between them losing their sanity as they venture the creepy settings of the old gods realm and their review of Young Frankenstein. They also review a punk album that really should have made their own cover of Puttin’ on the Ritz, Adam betrays the gods of vegetarianism by eating a sausage, Austin does his best metal impression and then Sarah tries to define what the hell Walking the Dinosaurs is. Also no matter when you listen to this episode, we swear Gene Hackman was alive when we recorded this. Enjoy!

Episode #70 — Alien / L’Eau Rogue / Boldo Leaf / Life in a Northern Town / Gargling with Jelly / Dae Jang Geum

Alien podcast review

Another ten episodes down, 931 to go! This week the Immortals continue to try to find Bethany in the Old God’s dimension and watch Sarah’s pick for The List: A Few Good Men. Then, they touch on super-beings in their review of Alien. They find that Young Gods are waaay better than Old Gods, and Life In A Northern Town isn’t so bad. Gargling with Jelly is literally and figuratively explored, and finally, Austin once again delivers a tour de force monologue when he discusses yet another obscure TV show that no one else watched,

Episode #69 — On the Waterfront / Paul Simon / Saikyo Miso / Cyprus Avenue / Mog the Forgetful Cat / Jesus of Nazareth

On the Waterfront podcast review

It’s episode 69 (NICE) and the Immortals are still trapped in the old gods other realm. As they explore their surroundings, they make time to review On the Waterfront! It’s about a nice guy surrounded by shady figures. It’s what Adam feels all the time on this show. Also Leigh gets mad at Paul Simon again, Sarah makes a soup, Pedro gets things thrown at him, everyone overanalyzes Mog and Austin talks about the flaws of Jesus. We are such an accessible show!!!

Episode #68 — Being John Malkovich / Bright Flight / Gulac / Slob / Listen to My Heart / Call the Midwife

Being John Malkovich podcast review

Even though the portal that formed in the sword wound in Adam’s chest that they went through last week closed behind them and they’ve been trapped in a room without food in another dimension with no clue how to get out, The Immortals still have INTERNET! The movie this week is Being John Malkovich, which proves to be only a slightly weirder scenario than the one the Immortals currently find themselves in. Leigh hates another album that Austin and Adam like, while they all mourn the fact that they’ll never again talk about Weezer after this episode. The food and children’s book were unobtainable and unreadable, and Austin once again finds himself underwhelmed by a beloved British TV show. Will the Immortals ever escape this dimension? Will they ever do a normal show with no weird stuff? Will Malkovich Malkovich Malkovich Malkovich Malkovich Malkovich? Probably not!
