EPISODE 10: The Final Pitch ...or is it?
Starting this podcast was a great idea. Ending it would be a terrible one. So in that spirit, Dave B. and Casey are talking about bad ideas. And how a potentially bad concept can lead to a good one. Then they pitch the worst ideas from their 30-day movie pitch challenge.  And while this might be the end of their first season, they’ll be back.

EPISODE 9: The Haunting of Pitch House
This episode is all about the genre we love to scream at. Dave B. and Casey talk about how horror films have shaped their lives. And they tackle the biggest question of them all: Fast zombies or slow zombies? They also pitch two films that fit into two different subgenres of horror, but are both somehow connected to BLACK CHRISTMAS (2019).

Episode 3: Pitch Cross
Imagine two movies that don’t belong in the same universe. Now jam them together. For example, DIE HARD meets WEEKEND AT BERNIE’S. Can you see it?  In this episode, Dave B and Casey mash several unlikely movies together.

Episode 2: Pitchthumping
Imagine a world in which the band Chumbawamba never existed. Nuclear war has wiped out humanity. Wise-cracking banana slugs are the dominant species. Sounds awful, right?  Luckily, Chumbawamba does exist. And they provide some inspiration for Dave B’s pitch.

Episode 1: Pitches Be Crazy
We open on two film fans: Dave B and Casey. Mortal enemies who must introduce the audience to this show and compete in a battle of wits. Who will win the day? What will the loser do? And can Donald Pleasence still surprise us all? At least, that’s how we might pitch it.
