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 #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.

There are angels among us! THERE ARE ANGELS AMONG US! Sorry, I’ve been catching up with Night Vale.

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.

Episode #95 — Bride of Frankenstein / The Velvet Underground and Nico / Yuzu / Johnny B. Goode / Who’s Seen the Scissors? / The Up Series

Bride of Frankenstein podcast review

The Immortals return to the land of Mary Shelly, but this time Bride of Frankenstein is a sequel to the classic novel instead of a spoof. Which one will have a greater impact on the gang? Also Austin learns there’s more to Nico than The Royal Tenenbaums, Pedro unveils that Marty McFly did not invent rock and roll. Adam shows where the goddamn scissors are and we learn about England’s future by looking at its aged children. Get excited!

Willy Wonka podcast review
Who can take a sunshine, sprinkle it with dew, cover it in chocolate and a miracle or two? The Immortals. We can. That’s a thing we can do and always has been. Listen to past episodes, there are plenty of hints. Anywho, today we reviewed Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, The The, The Sugarhill Gang, a Christmas story and a really beloved miniseries. Get excited!

Episode #92 — Network / Bad / Serrano Ham / 99 Luftballoons / Bridge to Terabithia / Band of Brothers

Network podcast review

The Immortals have had good line-ups but this million dollar number has to be one of the best. There is the scary and timely satire of Network, Michael Jackson’s classic, ham ham and more ham, catchy scary German tune, wonderful and sad children’s book and one of the most beloved WWII stories ever filmed. Let’s hope they didn’t fuck it up!
