You Have to Watch This Movie is a podcast hosted by Tony Rodriguez and Drew Mackie. Each week, they ask the people they love to tell them about the movies they love. Say you were dating someone new or made a new friend. Is there a single movie that, if this person said they hadn’t seen it, would elicit the response, “Oh, you have to watch this movie”? That one singular movie — the one you’ve watched again and again — is what this podcast is about.

he sequel to the 1984 hit Gremlins didn’t recapture the success of the original, but Joan Ford — comedian, actress and Emmy-nominated writer — makes the case that the second outing is bigger, weirder and maybe also more relevant to certain trans narratives. Also, Phoebe Cates, come back. The world needs you more than ever.
