Long-time broadcaster, sometime writer, wannabe director, occasional actor, more-than-occasional voice actor, part-time banjo tuner and former tuna canner Larry Morgan has managed to spend his entire career in radio and other media somehow not pissing people off. So after years of being told to "not talk so much" and "keep it short" he decide to Talk More and Go Longer with some of those people. Having a natural curiosity for others who are creative and how they got to where they are (obviously fueled by professional jealousy) and honing in on the events, people, films, TV shows and books that drove them to create - presented in a snarky, monkey-like way - is what this podcast is all about. Live - laugh - learn - throw a little feces with us and be an honorary Monkey as we bring the snark and go on this historic, ground-breaking audio journey. (Really, it's not that big a deal, but it should be fun.) -Larry Morgan

GO TO MOVIES with James Arnold Taylor - "Defending Your Life" (1991)

Podcast cover
Read more

Who better to talk movies on Star Wars Day than the voice of Obi-Wan himself - James Arnold Taylor! Besides Star Wars: The Clone Wars you've heard him as Ratchet (Ratchet & Clank), Tidus (Final Fantasy X), Johnny Test and many many others. But do we talk Star Wars for comfort food movies? No! It's Albert Brooks' delightful romantic comedy from 1991, "Defending Your Life" co-starring a little-seen, barely-known Meryl...I wanna say...Streep? Go back to a long time ago in a decade far, far away (the '90s!) as well as hear James' other Go To Movie recommendations during this weird time. Enjoy! (And May The Fourth/Force Be With You.)

After 17 years (25 after the first one!) WIll Smith and Martin Lawrence are back as those wise-crackin', rule-breakin' Miami cops. They're older...they're slower...but are they still funny? Does the chemistry hold up? Do things blow up real good? Join Larry Morgan with Chris McGahan, Jason E. Kelley, and first-time Snarker (and actually real live lady person) Teo Ashenafi as they answer all of the above - and more; including breaking down Will Smith's extraordinary appeal, Martin Lawrence's comeback (of sorts) and celebrate a couple of new directors on the scene who have a ton of promise.
