anything fantasy or sci-fi I can sink my teeth into.

and the Last Crusade, Love Actually, When Harry Met Sally, The
Empire Strikes Back.
Music: showtunes (especially Sondheim), movie soundtracks.

Thrilling Adventure Hour, NPR Pop Culture Happy Hour (I just
started listening), Savage Lovecast, Dan Carlin's Hardcore History,
