The Switch



The February tradition continues with Nathan’s wife Patty picking the movie for the podcast and she has bestowed the 2010 romantic comedy The Switch upon the show. This movie was a lot more disturbing than usual so get ready for Nathan to break down why he believed it was written by an incel and how the premise alone is problematic, the guys discuss how Patrick Wilson is definitely not a villain, they discuss the existence of insemination parties, how Diane Sawyer is used as a pivotal plot point, Brendan is disgusted by the absolute worst euphemism for semen and much more. Plus: Nathan has strong opinions about ducks.


The guys also drop a hint for next week’s movie. Check on Facebook or Twitter on Monday for the reveal!
