Paul Scheer [00:00:00] Arctic death. Harlem crime. And sunsets. All this and more on today’s How Did This Get Made? Last Looks. Hit the theme.   Music [00:00:09] [Intro Song]   Paul Scheer [00:00:25] For the love of Pete. Hello, my extra long boxer brief buddies. I’m your host, Paul Scheer, and welcome to How Did This Get Made Last Looks where you, the listener, get to voice your issues on Absolution, a.k.a. the journey: Absolution. Jason and I chat about some books and podcasts we’re currently loving, and I will reveal next week’s movie at the end of the show. I will also share an exclusive bonus scene from our last episode, something that we couldn’t keep in, but it’s still damn good. But first things first. A big shout out to Quinn for that amazing theme song. Thank you, Quinn. We love these songs. They’re fantastic. And if you have a Last Looks theme song, send it to me at Keep them short. 15 to 20 s
