Gobbledygeek episode 253, “Multiple Sadness (feat. Aundria),” is available for listening or download right here, and on iTunes here.
It’s the final episode of Gobbledyween 2015, kids, so bust out your Ouija–remember, it’s Wee-JUH, not Wee-JEE–boards and prepare to get possessed by 1986’s Witchboard. Joining Paul and AJ is first-time guest and hardcore horror fan Aundria; all three of them are baffled by this film, its intentions, and its extensive use of magic as metaphor. Some questions to which they seek answers: Can an atheist believe in spirits? Would ghosts fail a spelling test? Are Jim and Brandon, the estranged best friends at the heart of the movie, secretly knocking sneakers? They probably put more thought into those questions than anyone involved in the making of Witchboard.
Next: the Gobbledy-Book Club reconvenes to discuss Ridley Scott’s film adaptation of The Martian. Returning to the show are So Let’s Get to the Point‘s Kenn Edwards, Wanna Cook? co-author Ensley F. Guffey, and the all-around amazing Hallie Prime.
