The hosts of the Cinephile Hissy Fit podcast, sponsored and supported by the Ruminations Radio Network, bring back their “Deep Dive” episode series where they examine the career of an actor, actress, or filmmaker for a shared discussion. Their goal is to honor, but look past the obvious favorites and highlight some of the more under-seen or under-appreciated entries on the given subject’s resume. For this episode’s pick, we go deep in the heart of Texas!

For their 63rd episode, two “game over” film critics, non-Texan dads, and exhausted school teachers Will Johnson and Don Shanahan bring a new “Deep Dive” episode to celebrate the late, great hayseed everyman Bill Paxton. Will and Don genuflect at his greatest hits while offering a few choice films of his maybe you haven’t seen or too easily forgotten. They love and miss the guy and we think you will too. Come for the shared challenge and tirade and stay for the mutual love and respect for the fun movies encapsulate. Enjoy our podcast!
