We’re tired. So tired. That’s what you want to hear when you’re about to fire up a podcast, right? You are reading this, aren’t you? Buried among such illuminating subjects as the coffee Arlo’s drinking, Paul’s underhanded behind-the-scenes manipulations, and the boys’ general unprofessionalism, there is indeed some pop culture palaver and parley. The boys are digging HBO’s troubled teens drama Euphoria despite being approximately 400 years too old to say things like “that’s a mood”; Arlo is losing faith in The Handmaid’s Tale; Paul remembers Yesterday; and they both are in awe of Toy Story 4 being so much more than a cynical cash-grab.
Next: Toby Maguire now vanquished, Jake Gyllenhaal finally makes his way into a Spider-Man movie, donning a fishbowl for Spider-Man: Far From Home.

The fact that I was watching a new Toy Story movie took a little while to sink in. It’s been 11 years since Toy Story 2, which is a huge interim for any film series, but one that seems even huger to me since I was only nine years old when the second movie came out. For people of my age, these characters are nothing short of iconic. After all this time, I had pretty much resigned myself to the fact that I wouldn’t be experiencing further adventures with Woody, Buzz, and the gang. Yet there I was at the local multiplex, surrounded by a bunch of little kids who weren’t even alive when I saw the first two.
