Sometimes you need to see where a character started and came from to appreciate and understand their legacy or their present situation. The indelible Indiana Jones character played by the legendary Harrison Ford is one of those characters. It’s a marvel to see where and how far Ford has come with his highly-touted final go-around as the hero coming to theaters. The hosts of the Cinephile Hissy Fit podcast, sponsored and supported by the Ruminations Radio Network, recognize this moment and turned back the hands of time for some reflection.

For their 118th episode, two adventurous film critics, two top men dads, and two non-archaeology teachers, Will Johnson and Don Shanahan visit the Indiana Jones series back at its beginning. With Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny coming to theaters over the Fourth of July weekend, the Cinephile Hissy Fit revisits the classic perfection that was Raiders of the Lost Ark. Come for the shared challenge and tirade and stay for the mutual love and respect for the fun movies encapsulate. Enjoy our podcast!
