Something special happened for the hosts of the Cinephile Hissy Fit podcast, sponsored and supported by the Ruminations Radio Network. Will Johnson and Don Shanahan are normally separated by over 1400 miles. With Will traveling during a teacher’s summer vacation to visit family, that mileage gap became zero, creating a rare opportunity for our guy.

For their 119th episode, two united film critics, two daughter-toting dads, and two collaborating teachers, Will Johnson and Don Shanahan have closed the Phoenix-to-Chicago divide between them and are together in-person for a special episode! For the first time ever, our hosts have watched a movie together, and this episode is their live reaction for Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny! Will and Don weather the parking lot noise and, buyer beware, drop all kinds of SPOILERS for Harrison Ford’s big finale. The banter is the best when our boys are together! Come for the shared challenge and tirade and stay for the mutual love and respect for the fun movies encapsulate. Enjoy our podcast!
