Episode 49: 'Nymphomaniac' & 'Fifty Shades of Grey'

Welcome to a slightly belated Valentine's Day episode! The boys hope you spent some quality time with the people who love you. Jon and Joel decided amongst themselves that any romantic comedy double-feature simply would not serve this year, so they went for something decidedly... kinkier. First off is Lars Von Trier's latest, the squirm-worthy 'Nymphomaniac', volumes one and two. Five-and-a-half hours? Unsimulated sex*? Perfect! Then the J's take on a very consensual Valentine's Day film, 'Fifty Shades of Grey'. Cable ties and art-store rope have never been this useful.

Meanwhile the guys hit up the news, postulate on 'Better Call Saul' s01, and share piles of picture books! It's a very square episode of 'Talk and Trivia'; the boys hope you enjoy.
