Listen here from the site or in any podcast app. Rate and review us!

Come on in and give a listen to this week’s episode of Taking It Down. We start with the lambasting of Jim Harbaugh and Michigan as well as other buffoons (1:10) before we talk about some of the specifics of Episode Six of the Netflix show Squid Game and how it may be great or it may not (6:17). That sets up a final discussion on Midnight Mass, where Blaine concludes that is truly great (12:38). While still in Netflix territory, Adam discusses the new Dutch film on the streaming service The Forgotten Battle, which had Adam enraptured (14:25).

Donovan and Blaine took in the new season of Curb Your Enthusiasm all the while asking if it would live up to it grandeur of its previous season, one of the best in the HBO books (17:52).

Then the guys take a shift into music by discussing the excellent new album I Don’t Live Here Anymore from the band The War on Drugs (23:38). A popular question off mic becomes a crowd-sourced one: should we dump Facebook? Is Instagram the place to hang (35:15)? Let us know!

The final segment has some wide-ranging disagreements on the Apple TV+ documentary from Todd Haynes The Velvet Underground (37:29). Listen in to hear who thinks what about the documentary, which is now airing on the streaming service.
