Whether it's for planning an ambush, escaping a crime scene, staging an elaborate fight, or simply used to get from point A to point B via some solid rock, the tunnel has been reliable since it was first conceived over 4000 years ago. In movie terms though it's probably best known as a metaphor for sex, as famously used at the climax of Hitchcock's North by Northwest. This week's Top 5 Movie Tunnels is lower on the sexiness scale than you might usually expect from us but just like an explosives engineer tasked with blowing up mountains to help with building tunnels, it's ground-breaking work. If subprime mortgages, collateralized debt obligations, credit default swaps and spreadsheets are your jam - and let's face it, why wouldn't they be - then Adam McKay's 2015 polemic THE BIG SHORT is worth checking out. Based on the book by MONEYBALL author Michael Lewis, the movie tells the true story of a handful of investors who foresaw the 2007/2008 US financial crisis, identified the underhanded techniques used to compromise the economy including predatory lending and excessive risk-taking and then bet against the US housing market. An angry look at a serious, technical subject which impacted everyone to some degree or another, THE BIG SHORT inventively brings the crisis to life whilst also allowing for some exceptional character work in the hands of great actors such as Christian Bale, Marisa Tomei, Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling, Hamish Linklater, Brad Pitt and Jeremy Strong. If you only see one dramatization of a recent historical financial crisis this year, let it be this one. A SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS is not the name of my sex tape but is in fact Netflix's adaptation of American author Daniel Handler's series of books by the unseen Lemony Snicket. Following their parents' death in a mysterious fire, the series chronicles the miserable lives of the Baudelaire children as they are placed in the custody of their awful relative, Count Olaf. A sharp script and detailed world design bring the story to life, but will its unrelenting grimness and dark humour be too much for the Dads as we are after all sensitive souls? We love to hear from our listeners! By which I mean we tolerate it.

There is a small percentage of actors who get the opportunity to be part of one franchise, but with todays guest, KAREN GILLAN, she's been part of not just one, but TWO multibillion dollar franchises. Her first agent described her as having "sheer perseverance" due to her being relentless in having them represent her: AT THE AGE OF 15! Two working class parents who were her biggest fans to the point of even playing major roles in booking auditions. That's right, you will hear how her mother's thick Scottish accent made Adam Mckay laugh to the point where he cast Karen due to the sheer comedy of the self tape. Her father's love for old crooners such as Frank Sinatra gave Karen aspirations of being an opera singer. She was so infatuated with the performance arts that gymnastic looked like dance routines! Her iconic “Nebula” role on GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY was initially a one-off with her character dying in the first film but her take on the character inspired James Gunn to rewrite the fate of her character. She did not waste anytime after finishing drama school by booking the "Amy Pond" role on DOCTOR WHO which soon led to her torrid pace of SELFIE, AVENGERS, JUMANJI and the soon to be released Netflix GUNPOWDER MILKSHAKE. She is easily Box Office Gold but that doesn't deter her from being fearful of losing that momentum. She's reached a place where she would TAKE advice from her younger self instead of giving it. These are the unforgettable stories that landed KAREN GILLAN right here. For exclusive content surrounding this and all podcast episodes, sign up for our amazing newsletter at AlyshiaOchse.com.

This day in 1986, news of the death of basketball star Len Bias is starting to spread around the country. Bias died of a cocaine overdose just days after being drafted by the Boston Celtics. Jody, NIki, and Kellie are joined by director and producer Adam McKay (The Big Short, Anchorman) to talk about how Bias's death fueled a narrative about the dangers of cocaine and crack. Later that summer, politicians would rush through punitive drug laws that created mandatory minimum sentences and huge disparities between how crack and powder cocaine were treated.

Zach and Amin's segment from last weekend's LeBatard Show 24 hour live stream marathon. First they interviewed Method Man about How High and more, then Adam McKay and Neal Brennan chatted about politics and comedy, while occasionally discussing the 2009 film The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard with the guys.
Adam McKay is a film director, writer, and host of the podcast Death at the Wing.“Sometimes you do a project and then you look back and you’re like, Ah, shit. I let some of myself get in the way of that. It sucks, but it’s also a part of it. And there are so many times where you’re excited that the story did take off, the wind did catch the sail and it went off on its own. And that just feels so good that it far outweighs the times when you make a mistake, or let something go wrong, or too long, or hit the wrong tone. Which is going to happen. There’s no way around it. But those times when it all just catches perfectly—it’s just so exciting that you keep doing it.” Thanks to Mailchimp for sponsoring this week's episode.

Adam McKay's had a pretty eclectic career. He started in sketch comedy. First as a founder of the Upright Citizens Brigade, then as a writer on Saturday Night Live. He's collaborated with Will Ferrell to make some stone cold comedy classics: Anchorman, Step Brothers, Talladega Nights. Lately, his work has been more topical and political. We're revisiting our conversation with Adam this week. When we talked in 2019, he'd just directed Vice – a biopic about Dick Cheney. Vice explains why, for better or for worse, Cheney is one of the most consequential people in recent history. In this conversation, Adam explained how he manages to keep his films fresh, funny and weird even when the topics are more serious. Plus, he shared some tales in improv comedy from his time at Second City in Chicago. Adam's latest project is a podcast called Death at the Wing, you can find it wherever you get podcasts.
