It’s game over, man, for this week’s episode, in which we cross over rom/fam/sports-com Bend It Like Beckham and sci-fi/action adventure Aliens. Head to iTunes, Soundcloud, and Stitcher for our conversation about how community helps us succeed, great 90s boy band names, Helen Hunt’s autobiography, and whether the ghost from Three Men and a Baby carried a cardboard cut out of Ted Danson through an airport.
