Podcast #162 - The Bacon: Strike Updates, Movies We've Seen, & Homecoming Noise
We're bookending September with episodes because Sept 1 was really our August podcast, so THIS is our REAL Sept show. We apologize for any confusion and this episode bring you: strike updates, what the future may hold for SAG-AFTRA negotiations, movies we've seen lately, and some random background noise caused by TEENS!
Podcast #161 - The Pig Picture: Quick Bites
We missed August and had audio issues this episode BUT we're recording in person for the first time in forever! This episode features a fast round-robin of movie subjects, talk of what we've seen lately and what we're looking forward to, and a game that's almost too close to call!
Podcast #160 - The Pig Picture: Strike! Strike! Strike!
The Pigs are back for Hot Strike Summer! This episode we're talking the WGA/SAG-AFTRA strike, movies we've seen lately, and playing a game full of twists, turns, and questionable choices!
Podcast #159 - The Bacon: What Have You Seen Lately, Lately?
As June Gloom ends, a new podcast rises! Todd and Skelton close out the month with a review of what they've seen lately, and an impromptu discussion of multiple Ghostbusters films. As one does in the summertime.
Podcast #158 - The Bacon: News Bits
April showers bring May flowers and make one of the Film Pigs sick so Todd and Skelton have to do a Bacon episode. They get into an extended What Have You Seen Lately? followed by a rundown of some of the latest Movie News - including the current Writer's Strike. #WGAstrong
Podcast #157 - The Pig Picture: Geri-Action
This episode, the Pigs are talking movies where old people punch and get punched and how much fun it is to see them in very dangerous action scenes. Also, Falk shows Todd and Skelton his new puppy which you can't see because this is an audio podcast. Sorry.
Podcast #156 - The Pig Picture: Running Times & CGI Animals
The Film Pigs are happy to report we're ending March with a brand-new indictment-free episode! This time we're tackling two topics: complaining about why movie running times are so long and then complaining about CGI animals. Then we play a game that makes Todd mad even though he made up the game and Falk gives a moving speech about sandwiches.
Podcast #155 - The Pig Picture: The Effect of A.I. on Cinema
We're back just in time to end February with our fingers on the pulse - we're talking how the rise of Artificial Intelligence will affect the future of cinema. When an A.I. bot can write, storyboard, build 3-D sets, deepfake actors, and edit movies by itself who needs human artists at all? Will A.I. tech send us down this dystopian road of art no longer being produced by human thought or will it enable new and different kinds of expression for more people? And will the game in this episode upset Todd? Tune in for the answers and "Hold on to your butts!"
Podcast #154 - The Pig Picture: 2023 Oscar Noms!
The Pigs start 2023 off right with the one thing on everyone's minds: Oscar Fever! Who was nominated? Who will win? Who cares? Plus, our usual roundup of what we've seen lately and an awards-themed game! Bonus metagame of us trying to recover every time Todd's internet drops his stream and we can't hear what he's saying - but you can!
Podcast #153 - The Pig Picture: Year In Movies 2022
We're sorry we missed last month! We thought No Nut November meant "no nutty, irreverent podcasting"! But we're back to finish out the year with our review of 2022: what we saw, liked, disliked, and were okay with. Plus, a game with truly awful hints - just no help at all. Happy holidays!
Podcast #152 - The Pig Picture: Heist Movies
It's nearing All Hallows' Eve and that means it's time for a Film Pigs podcast that has nothing to do with Halloween! Ok, we talk about that latest Halloween movie and some other horror stuff but that's it! Otherwise, this episode is a Pig Picture where we're talking heist movies - what makes 'em tick, why do we love 'em, what are some of our favorites, and more! Plus, a game that makes mostly everybody mad.
Podcast #151 - The Pig Picture: Streaming Services Impressions
As Hot Climate Change Summer comes to a close the Film Pigs are back with a brand-new podcast!

Plus, a rundown of what we've seen lately and a thrill-filled game pitching movies to the streamers!
Podcast #150 - The Pig Picture: Pandemic Theater Going
It's August and the planet is riddled with pandemics, global warming, high-level treason, and probably a real-life sharknado somewhere. So, forget your troubles with the latest Film Pigs Podcast where we discuss...going to the movies during a pandemic. [shrug emoji, we guess?]
Podcast #149 - The Bacon: State of Cinema 2022
July is too damn hot for a full episode so this time its a Bacon with Todd and Skelton. The two Pigs talk recent movies and the general state of cinema in 2022. There is also an in-depth review of Skelton's recent lab results (SPOILER: he's adequate).
Podcast #148 - The Pig Picture: 2022 Summer Movie Predictions
The Film Pigs are back and declaring summer 2022 to be a Hot Pig Summer! And we're kicking things off by looking at the upcoming summer movie releases and giving our predictions: big hit, big flop, delayed indefinitely due to a star's bad behavior or the imminent collapse of our republic? Who knows? Plus, what we've seen lately and a guessing game involving lots of money!
