Season 17 | Episode 10
56m | Feb 28, 2024

A podcast miniseries devoted to celebrating the 1988 contemporary classic, action buddy comedy MIDNIGHT RUN, written by George Gallo & directed by Martin Brest. Hosted by Blake Howard & Jen Johans of One Heat Minute Productions & Watch With Jen, respectively, each week, we’ll explore the film we first bonded over when we became friends in 2019 by surfing through an incredible roster of guests from journalists to novelists & beyond who love it as much as we do.

In episode ten, we discuss travelling across the U.S.A., MIDNIGHT RUN as a once-in-a-generation comedy, De Niro requiring the most "real" straight man for his best comedic performances and experiencing De Niro's bullshit detector first hand.
