Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri (2017)

The Pod Bay Door Podcast, Episode #20: Rebecca (1940)

This episode, Jerry and Doug leave Turkey Month and The Village behind and take a holiday at Manderlay. That’s right, Turkey Month hurt so bad that we went to Alfred Hitchcock’s Rebecca from 1940 to cheer us up.
