Dorking Out Episode 116: The True Crime Movies Edition

Hey there, dorks. With the recent arrest of the Golden State Killer and the new Netflix documentary series “Evil Genius,” true crime stories have been on my mind. And when I thought, “I want to talk about true crime” I immediately thought of Margo D., because she is a serious true crimer. Not only is Margo super into true crime stories, but she also hosts every podcast in the world, including Book vs. Movie, The Best Neighbors Podcast, Not Fade Away and Fit Bottom Girls.

In this podcast, Margo and I share our five favorite true crime movies. We didn’t want to be criminally negligent, so Margo also picks five true crime TV movies, and I choose five true crime documentaries.

Hey there, dorks. In this week’s episode, we offer a few recommendations for horror movies to watch during the scariest month of the year. We are joined by Anthony C. Ferrante, director of “Boo,” “Headless Horseman” and the “Sharknado” movies, Ryan Mitchelle, director of “Jesus, Bro!” and Peter Brown, associate editor of Assignment X.

We each picked a horror movie favorite, and most of the movies were released between 1982-1983. Only one of us picked a movie outside of those years. You’ll never guess who it was.

In our second segment, Chris and Sonia review “Battle Of The Sexes,” starring Emma Stone and Steve Carell.

And finally, Chris and our “Star Trek” experts Jeff Bond and Alexandra August talk about Sunday night’s episode of “Star Trek: Discovery” titled “Choose Your Pain.”
