Author and former The A.V Club and The Dissolve staff writer Nathan Rabin (that’s me!) and co-host Clint Worthington (of Consequence of Sound and The Spool) bring the cult pop culture website Nathan Rabin’s Happy Place to the world of podcasts with Nathan Rabin’s Happy Cast, an audio wonderland for special snowflakes where we discuss bad movies, bad people (such as Donald Trump), new movies (lotta overlap with ‘bad movies’ on that one) and the happy places in pop culture and life that make all of the hassle worth it. Make our Happy Cast your Happy Place as we lovingly massage your eardrums all up in cyber space.
