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.

–Austin was wrong (shocker!) in that there actually four Cary Grant / Alfred Hitchcock collaborations. North by Northwest, To Catch a Thief, Notorious and Suspicion.

–There is some audio issues early in the episode with Skype–I mean, Pedro’s spaceship–freaking out a bit. It only lasts within the first 20 minutes. We’re very sorry.


–Leave your own henge ratings at

–Be sure you leave an iTunes review so Pedro can give you a compliment on air.







Join us next Thursday as we discuss more random things. Until then, email or tweet us your thoughts, leave a review on iTunes and other crap every podcast asks you to do. (But we love that you do it!)
