On this week’s Cheer and Loathing, we debate heresy, hypocrisy, and the horrors of humanity with “Midsommar” and “The Wicker Man”.
THIS EPISODE: “MIDSOMMAR” AND “THE WICKER MAN”
Do you feel held by this podcast? Does it feel like home?
It’s the final week of “What a Twist!” month on Cheer and Loathing. Join our cult as we dare to let Ari Aster f*ck with our heads yet again, discuss the merits of booty slaps and phallic symbols, get a little philosophical around the maypole, and discuss if sanity is really all it’s cracked up to be. We didn’t start the fire…but we’re definitely gonna burn in hell. Join us!
Don’t forget that each month you have a chance to win a killer prize just for supporting the show. This month, if you leave a review of the show on iTunes, you’ll be entered to win a a stunning “Hereditary” inspired poster from one of our favorite artists, Chris Garafolo of Quilt Face Studios.
Be sure to head over to our Instagram page at @morbidlybeautifulhorror or @srgreenhaw. Find one of our Cheer and Loathing posts and leave a comment letting us know you left a review or voice message. This makes sure we can reach you to send you your prize if you win!
In the U.S. where Stephanie is, and in Canada, where Casey is, you can stream Midsommar on Amazon Prime Video or Kanopy. The Wicker Man is on Prime in the United States, and you can rent or buy it on Apple TV/iTunes in Canada.
We are taking a week off, but we’ll be back on May 2nd with a brand new theme. We’d tell you what that theme is, but for now, mum’s the word!
