All this week on The Gist, we’re down with O.P.P.: Other People’s Podcasts. In this episode, Elliott Kalan, Dan McCoy, and Stuart Wellington explain why their reviews of bad movies on The Flop House aren’t your typical Internet snark. Dan says, “We actually do try to keep ourselves from getting mad at the movies, to approach it with some sort of sense of joy so we’re not just jerks.” To which Elliott adds, “I mean, we are jerks.” For the Spiel, it’s time to name our lobstar of the antentwig.
