Host Sonia Mansfield and her podcasting sister from another mister Margo D. from Book vs. MovieThe Best Neighbors PodcastNot Fade Away and Fit Bottom Girls review "A Star Is Born," starring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga.

This is the fourth remake of this story, so Sonia and Margo are off the deep end, listen as they dive in ... they're far from the shallow now. They talk about all the "A Star Is Born" films, including the 1937 version with Janet Gaynor and Fredric March, the 1954 film starring Judy Garland and sad James Mason, and - of course - the 1976 movie with Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson.

SHOW RUNDOWN:

We have two special guests. One is an accomplished nerd author, award-winning filmmaker and leading dork thinker. He is Mark A. Altman, author, along with Edward Gross,  of the fantastic new book, So Say We All: The Complete, Uncensored, Unauthorized Oral History of Battlestar Galactica. The other guest is my occasional co-host Chris Smith whose accomplishments are a mystery.

We talk a bit about Mark’s Battlestar Galactica book… We plan to have Ed Gross on soon to dive deep… but also to tease the duo’s next book which may or may not be an oral history of the James Bond series. That brings us to the subject of tonight’s discussion… James Bond and specifically 1977’s The Spy Who Loved Me.

Mark is also the host of the fantastic new nerd podcast the 4:30 Movie, which dives deep into all kinds of movie culture. We’ll talk about that too.

Hey there, dorks. With the recent arrest of the Golden State Killer and the new Netflix documentary series “Evil Genius,” true crime stories have been on my mind. And when I thought, “I want to talk about true crime” I immediately thought of Margo D., because she is a serious true crimer. Not only is Margo super into true crime stories, but she also hosts every podcast in the world, including Book vs. MovieThe Best Neighbors PodcastNot Fade Away and Fit Bottom Girls.

In this podcast, Margo and I share our five favorite true crime movies. We didn't want to be criminally negligent, so Margo also picks five true crime TV movies, and I choose five true crime documentaries.

True crime movies we talk about include Zodiac, Bonnie and Clyde, Capote, Star 80, The Untouchables, Heavenly Creatures, The French Connection, Goodfellas and All The President's Men. 

True crime TV movies include Texas Justice, Fatal Vision, Small Sacrifices, Murder In Texas and I Know My First Name Is Steven. 

True crime documentaries include The Staircase, The Thin Blue Line, Capturing the Friedmans, Paradise Lost and OJ: Made In America.

Hey there, dorks. While Smith is away, the cohost will play. It's all beer and baseball! Sonia's better half David Tracy, co-host of Sonia's other podcast, Old Movies, New Beer, steps into the batter's box to talk about baseball movies, specifically 1989's "Major League" and "Field Of Dreams." Strangely, David had managed not to see either of these classics until last week, so this will be fun.

You can read about her random adventures at her blog at TheSoniaShow.com, and track the slow and creeping process of Chris’ novel, and his other hijinks, at JettJergens.com
