Basic Instinct (ft. Gali from The Rewind Movie Podcast)

Auguest, a month of amazing guest-hosted episodes, begins!

I'd have to be pretty stupid to host a podcast about killing and then kill him the way I described in my podcast. I'd be announcing myself as the killer. I'm not stupid.

TW: This episode includes a discussion about a scene which depicts forced sex/sexual assault/rape as well as Sharon Stone's recent revelations that she did not consent to her genitals being shown on screen.

It's not just global warming, Verbal Diorama is officially getting hotter, and finally tackling the definitive erotic thriller of the '90s - BASIC INSTINCT! A spec script that Mario Kassar of Carolco paid $3 million for, which became the movie everyone was talking about, but mainly for one infamous scene in particular.

Joining me for this sexy investigation is a man who can wield an ice pick like no other. A man who likes rough edges, and a podcaster who falls for the wrong guest appearance. It’s Gali from The Rewind Movie Podcast. 

Will Gali make it out of the episode alive? Will I charge him with smoking? Will he get off before he gets offed? Or will we f**k like minks, raise rugrats, and live happily ever after?

Maybe forget the rugrats...

Gali hosts (The Rewind Movie Podcast) along with Devlin, Patrick and Matt. You can find their back catalogue of brilliant episodes in your podcast app of choice, and they're on Twitter as (@rewindmoviecast)
