EP. 329 — Bats LIVE! (w/ Ike Barinholtz)

Ike Barinholtz swoops into Largo to help Paul, June, and Jason break down the 1999 Lou Diamond Phillips horror flick Bats. They discuss the jacked bats on steroids, the river of guano, the insanity of trying to shoot bats with handguns, and if Jimmy is actually a ghost. Plus, Paul reveals how live possums factored into his childhood Halloween decorations and an audience member drops a bombshell translation of Dr. Casper’s necklace.

Paul Scheer [00:00:01] Oh. Guano, which is scientist talk for shit. We saw Bats. So you know what that means!   Music [00:00:34] [Intro Song]   Paul Scheer [00:01:03] Hello people of Earth, and hello people of Largo! We are excited because tonight we are going to talk about an actor that we love. Lou Diamond Phillips. LDP in a movie called Bats, a movie that has sequels. But with none of this cast. A movie that you guessed it is about bats. Honestly, that’s all you really need to know. I guess a lot of bats and maybe if we want to add to that. And bats that eat people. I mean, that’s really the premise of the movie. Bats that eat people get loose in a town. And Lou Diamond Phillips has to save the day. Oh. And Lou Diamond Phillips is Southern. Okay. So this movie came out in 1999, which is interesting because when you watch it, if I told you 1987, you’d be like, okay. Sure. But tonight we are going to break down this movie with my two co-hosts. Please welcom
