Amadeus - Patron Exclusive Podcast

Hear the voice of God… or at least podcasters Arnie, Stuart, and Jakob… when you receive an exclusive show devoted to Amadeus.  Was Mozart (Tom Hulce) murdered by jealous court composer Salieri (F Murray Abraham) in an elaborate plot to steal away his final musical composition?  And didn’t the cackling brat kind of deserve it for being such an irresponsible husband and disappointing celebrity in person? Find out why this 1780 costume drama became one of the biggest hits of the 1980s when you become a Now Playing Patron this January.

Or unborn Black Ghost - plotting a self-induced C-section after being absorbed in utero inside the body of her twin sister?  Find out if either ghost story truly delivers when you Donate for Gold Level in 2019.

Flash Gordon - Patron Exclusive Podcast

Before Now Playing rockets back to that fabled galaxy far, far away, Brock, Arnie and Stuart weather the space opera George Lucas once sought to make instead of Star Wars. Comic strip hero Flash Gordon didn’t break any box office records when it crashed into movie theaters back in 1980, but has since won a substantial cult following thanks to colorful visuals, a rockin’ Queen score, and a pervasive sleazy vibe that starts with Playgirl centerfold/star Sam Jones! Find out if it’s the disaster Ming The Merciless hoped it to be by becoming a December Patron.

Robert DeNiro co-stars as The Irishman who knows why the mob-connected Teamster famously went missing back in 1975.
