The Brave Little Toaster (1987)

Jared and Clint go it solo this time around, as we take on the surprisingly dark and horrifying kid’s film The Brave Little Toaster! Here, we muse on the existential underpinnings of life as a sentient appliance, and gasp in horror at all the rampant car murder. Enjoy along with our custom cocktail and drinking game!

(Thanks to our sponsor Field Notes as part of the Chicago Podcast Coop!)
