Just in time for Thanksgiving, it's a story of Reagan-era morality and economics gone wild, Eating Raoul (1982) put "cult filmmaker" Paul Bartel on the map with a surprise mainstream hit about Paul and Mary Bland, two Puritanical folks who kill swingers for cash to fulfill their "American Dream."
We speak to screenwriter Richard Blackburn, actresses Mary Woronov and Susan Saiger as well as the musician behind the Eating Raoul musical, Jed Feuer.
Get ready to dig in as guest co-host: Adam Spiegelman of the Proudly Resents podcast joins us once again to dig into this "Bland Enchilada" paired with Château Lafite Rothschild.
