As we grow nearer to the Hallowed day of Ween, the boundary between the spectral world and the human becomes weaker. As such, sometimes (g)hosts slip through unnoticed, which is why cofounder of the show Blair has returned a week early to talk to us about Sara’s all-time favorite film, Paprika!

In addition to cicada revelations, we also discuss Almond Turds (skip to 5:15 to avoid the poop story!), Jurassic World 2 Adventure, Atsuko’s Phid, and just a ton of Film Analysis. Put your thinking brains on, y’all – Sara’s on her bullshit!
