Ep245: DARK, SICK Yippies

This week, the Kicking the Seat Podcast and's Pat "The Über Critic" McDonald shoot with their hearts while discussing the latest Stephen King adaptation, The Dark Tower! This slim epic starring Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey as time-space-hopping personifications of good and evil opens this weekend, and the guys get into what makes the film work for King novices--and what makes it kind of stink for King fans.

Also, Pat and Ian deliver a sorta-sequel to Episode 236, with a different take on Michael Showalter's The Big Sick.* Plus, Pat has info on the first-ever YippieFest, a three-day creative extravaganza that hits Chicago's Prop Theatre on August 18th.

Episode 245 has totally forgotten the name of its father!

*Read (and listen to!)'s conversation with The Big Sick stars Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon, featuring interviewers Patrick McDonald and Jon Espino!
