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.

Catching Up with Pedro!

In this short casual barely-edited mostly-silly bonus episode, Sarah and Austin chat with Pedro about what he was up to during his two-week absence. They hear about his new pop culture love, hear his thoughts on the movies he missed and they review two new songs. Come back next week for our next proper episode with…..our new co-host! Get excited!

NOTE: We do spoil The Ox-Bow Incident.

Episode #130 — Heaven and Earth Magic / Aja / Arctic Char / Rock On / The Life and Loves of a She-Devil

Heaven and Earth Magic podcast review

It’s time for a bonus review! Leigh picked the excellent show Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown to discuss it as a masterpiece of its genre. This provides excellent counterbalance to the experimental movie they covered, Heaven and Earth Magic. They also listened to the smooth sounds of Steely Dan and David Essex to distract themselves from the Life and Loves of a She-Devil. Also there’s a big announcement! Get excited!

Episode #129 — The Ox-Bow Incident / Kick Out the Jams / Frisee / The Mary Tyler Moore Show

Ox-Bow Incident podcast review

Sarah loves westerns! And The Ox-Bow Incident is definitely a western. It follows Henry Fonda and his familiar faced friend as they take on a moral problem. They also listen to DNC’s own MC5, ignore some frisee and take in the delights of The Mary Tyler Moore Show. Also, did Austin and Sarah actually finish Parenthood?!? Don’t look at the timestamp if you want to be surprised!

Episode #128 — The Jerk / Moss Side Story / Greek Oregano / Wide Open Road / QI

The Jerk podcast review

 

Steve Martin has been an amigo, a banjo player and a man with two brains, but first he was a jerk. The Immortals look back at his cinematic breakthrough, The Jerk and wonder how much it has held up. They also listen to a brilliant concept album which is a soundtrack for a movie that doesn’t exist. They also eat oregano in which they have so much to say. Then they dive into QI, the delightful British panel show where you finish it a little bit smarter. Get excited!

A Frank Sinatra album because the 1001 Albums book starts in the 50s! Opera song that we definitely didn’t mess up! And The Ed Sullivan Show which is definitely available! This episode is about three times as long as the film we cover.
