Episode 56: 'Carrie' Extravaganza!

Howdy folks, and welcome back to Joel and Jon's off-the-cuff podcast. We hope some of you enjoyed Easter, and that the rest of you ate lots of candy. Speaking of blood, sweat, and tears, J&J decide to skip the box office this weekend and embrace everybody's favorite psychotic, telepathic teen girl: CARRIE, BABY! And boy is there ground to cover: Stephen King's book, two film adaptations (plus a sequel that doesn't count), one made-for-TV adaptation, and a musical stage production! All things Carrie, coming at you like a bucket of blood and fiery revenge.

Meanwhile Jon talks up his Chromebook and tech philosophy, and Joel dreams of the perfect color-correcting suite. You know, cats and dogs. It's another extra-awesome episode of Talk and Trivia.

They're all gonna laugh at you.
