In this special year-end episode we take a look at our favorite moments from our favorite movies of 2016. And we're joined by film critic Dave Karger who not only shares his top 3 movie moments but also gives us a list of his favorite films of the year that fell under almost everyone's radar.

This is THE podcast episode to listen to if you're a) looking for recommendations of new films to check out b) want to revisit a film you loved and see it in a new light!

We have a diverse roster of films for our discussion including:

  • Moonlight (hands down - Sean's favorite film of the year)
  • Lion
  • Manchester By the Sea
  • Patriots Day
  • La La Land
  • Captain America: Civil War
  • Hidden Figures
  • The Witch
  • The 13th
  • Nocturnal Animals
  • Julieta

Those are the films  - but you'll have to listen to see which moments gave us the feels, the chills, the laughter and the thrills.

Essential Music of 2016

Dec 14, 2016

We're back with another installment of our Best of the year episodes with our Essential Music of 2016 picks!

So why was this music Essential? These albums and songs acted as the soundtrack of our lives this year and brought us joy, helped us through pain, gave us life, empowered us and sometimes even made us cry. This is the music that fed our souls and we are thrilled to share it with you.

There's no question that artists we've loved for years, like A Tribe Called Quest, Beyoncé, Gwen Stefani, Sia and David Bowie continued to provide music that is as relevant and vital in 2016 as it was decades earlier. But our minds were also blown (and our hearts tugged) by a younger generation of music artists --- from Solange's honest and inspiring A Seat at the Table, to Frank Ocean's heady and heartfelt Endless and Blonde, to Blood Orange's introspective opus, Freetown Sounds.

We also shine a light on some of the great songs of the year including works by Kendrick Lamar, Bruno Mars, Rationale, Kamasi Washington, James Blake, One Republic and Miguel.

And this list would not be complete without Sean rejoicing one more time for the Hamilton original cast album.
