It’s a devolution of a good idea, with two tired dudes, rambling a little too much. It’s all that and so much more, on this week’s Crit Mo.
Welcome to Back When We Were Interesting, where we talk about the stories and the experiences that make us and you, interesting.

The real question is, will these three intrepid interviewers find this movie love at first sight, or will they have to break up with it? It’s all that and much more on this week’s Back When Podcast.
