All good moments come to an end. All vacations have their conclusions. Through a whirlwind few summer hours spend together in-person for the first time, our Cinephile Hissy Fit podcast hosts Will Johnson and Don Shanahan laid down some amazing content. This is the final piece of that collection. Echoing the Harrison Ford breakdown last week, Will and Don go for a second consecutive conversation tossing around the peaks, valleys, loves, and hates for a singular screen icon and performer.

For our 25th episode and the final bit of their epic in-person series, 25YL film critics, beef-craving dads, and oh-so-basic school teachers Will Johnson and Don Shanahan conclude their united recording meeting for the second edition of a new segment style. Targeting some deep cut discussion on the resumes and legacies of actors and actresses, our hosts discuss one more Chicago-born actor: Robin Williams! They work around the easy and obvious to peer further down the late and beloved gentleman’s sterling resume. Let’s hope these two meet up again some day!
