It’s Finally Here!   Leave a comment

I know, you guys. It’s been way too long between Trading Movies episodes. But here it is at last! I must warn you, the sound quality of this episode is in the toilet so you just have to bear with us for this one. The microphone was on the wrong setting. But next week’s is going to sound so good you’ll be frightened!

This week Maria and Craig dive into the world of the Romantic Comedy with two HILARIOUS movies. Maria gives Craig “The Switch” and Craig gives Maria “My Man Godfrey.” Can you imagine?!

For those of you who are leery of my affinity for “The Switch,” here is an article from Entertainment Weekly Magazine defending the movie as I have been trying to do for the last couple of months.

The Article

We are also working on an official theme song for the podcast that should be finished in a couple of weeks. We are hoping to start putting out the podcast on a more regular basis and on a set day and time. More information on that to come!
