Episode 36: 'Snowpiercer' & 'Big Hero 6'

Live from New York! Are you looking for some studies in sociology and revolutions? Or maybe you desire an inflatable marshmallow buddy to spray antibiotics on your mildly-abrased skin? Well the boys have you covered, yes both of you! And you over there, you too. This week on 'TaT w/ JaJ', listen as Chris Evans lead the Great Train Revolution in 'Snowpiercer' (no number!). Then sit in awe as John Lasseter produces the worst animated film of his life (... wait, he produces all sorts of crap; they shouldn't have been all that surprised), film #49376, 'Big Hero 6'.

There will be axe battles. There will be soundtrack podcasts. There will be... politics? POLITICS?! You're bound to enjoy this episode of 'The Talk & The Trivs'. But if not, I have some Steven Wright jokes here that I could read off...
