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 / AlbumsSongs  / TV Shows You Must Consume Before You Die books.

Every week join Pedro Aubry,  Austin Lugar, J.C. Pankratz 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 #184 — 2 or 3 Things I Know About Her / The House of Eliott

Uh oh! Pedro and Sarah are gone and they left the mics with J.C. and Austin! They ignore most of their assignments to talk about what matters most of them: Gloria Grahame, erotic novels and Doctor Who. They do get around to talking about Jean-Luc Godard’s film, but mostly to insult him. It’s a goofy one!

Episode #183 — Frenzy / Water from an Ancient Well / I Got You / Dawson’s Creek

WE DON’T WANNA WAIT FOR THE POD TO BE OVER TO TALK ABOUT THIS SHOW AND ITS CREEK! But before we can get to that, The Immortals look into the river and find a naked dead woman in Alfred Hitchcock’s Frenzy. They listen to some “so smooth” jazz by South African artist Abdullah Ibrahim. They listen to Split Enz and think about New Zealand’s song ranking. Then we get into all of the feelings about Dawson’s Creek.

Episode #182 — In a Lonely Place / Every Picture Tells a Story / Your Love Keeps Lifting Me (Higher and Higher) / Fawlty Towers

Austin’s real sick, y’all! But is he as sick as Humphrey Bogart in In a Lonely Place where he may have killed a woman? Hope not! The Immortals also listen to Rod Stewart and Jackie Wilson. Also they discuss the John Cleese farce, Fawlty Towers. Spoiler, Austin doesn’t die.

Episode #181 — The Thin Blue Line / The Holy Bible / Deep Cover / The Big Bang Theory

Then they fix the legal system alongside Errol Morris’ The Thin Blue Line. They fix 90s music while listening to The Holy Bible. They learn the plot of the Dr. Dre’s song Deep Cover. Then they fix all the sexism in The Big Bang Theory. And it’s a shorter episode than last week!

Episode #180 — The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance / MTV’s Fear / Low / 20th Century Boy / Alf

When the truth becomes the podcast, you publish the podcast. The Immortals bring their own truth to one of Sarah’s all time favorite westerns: The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance. They also listen to David Bowie’s unconventional album, Low, and a happy example of rock, T-Rex’s 20th Century Boy. Austin makes some bold claims about Alf. But before all that, everyone watched J.C.’s bonus pick, the cult reality show MTV’s Fear. Get excited!

Episode #179 — Persona / Tusk / Sweet Gene Vincent / The Jerry Springer Show

BERGMAN! BERGMAN! BERGMAN! That’s right, we’re the only podcast talking about Persona and The Jerry Springer Show on the same episode. They both torment the soul and make us question our identity. We also listened to Fleetwood Mac’s Tusk and Ian Dury’s Sweet Gene Vincent. Enjoy!

Also they record maybe the dumbest segment in the history of The Immortals with the song review of Java Jive by the Ink Spots. Enjoy!

Episode #176 — Manhunter / Three Days / Planet Earth

Before Hannibal Lecter bragged about fava beans, he was in prison and stayed in prison in the film Manhunter. The Immortals look into the Michael Mann adaptation of Thomas Harris’ Red Dragon and see how it stacks up to so many more iconic depictions. They also listen to a long Jane’s Addiction song and marvel at Planet Earth. Get excited!
