The Re-Casting Couch

By David Straughan
Movies/Actors/Comedy
Two morons recast famous roles throughout film history. Complete with witty banter, obscenely long tangents, and raw humor; we argue our case for the best, worst, and most absurd recasting of characters that we can think up. It's funny, we swear...

LIVE From the Kirk Minihane Show
The obligatory mid-season interlude... The Doctors brave the Coronavirus as they venture to the Saco, Maine Drive-in Theater to see Podcast Jesus himself, Kirk Minihane. They even the social playing field, by recasting some predominantly white-male roles with some more woke-friendly celebrities. Feel the on-air tension as the Docs go head-to-head with their opinions on Blue Lives, burning police stations, and bombing cruisers, all while fighting the heat and the massive cloud of pot smoke in the car. Oh yeah... they recorded this one in a f*cking car. Follow the Couch at https://facebook.com/The RecastingCouchPodcast And join the conversation at https://discord.gg/5mtn58V

Mother's Day... Special?
The Doctors honor the mothers of the world with one of their more "colorful" episodes to date. They Re-cast famous moms in movies and TV. Dr.S. recounts his own experience of being recast... to a different family when he was given up for adoption as a wee lad. They discuss the controversy behind "Karens", the C word, and why orphans objectively suck. The Which Doctor definitely doesn't smoke any pot, and, for the most part, both Docs are pretty much on the same page for the whole show (wait... really?)
