Episode 21 – Der Knochenmann – The Bone Man – 2009

Luke Hacker is my gracious co-host this time and we try to be as fun as we can, while talking about eating people in this here proto-Hannibal film. And the movie shows that preparing humans is as disgusting or as delicious as you want it to be. A movie so Austrian in its core, that you will find it hard to not party afterwards with a Schnitzel in your mouth and Mozart in your ears. Now listen to us ramble on about it for more than an hour!

Episode 20 – Die Piefke Saga – Der Skandal – 1990

A real Austrian classic, is the target of the 20th episode of FFPÖ and I pulled out a good amount of stops for you guys: we have our first “professional” co-host with us this time in the great Tommy Meyer-Ortiz. He and I wax poetically about the Austrian landscape, the rift between Austrians and Germans, stereotypes and the crushing realism, that this movie portraits, without being to cynical or evil. But as always, tangents are ahead and we get lost a few times in the woods mad out of our own words.

Also, I lie about it being a two-parter at the end of the episode, disregard that.

Episode 19 – Sissi – 1955

My guest-host this time is the very amusing and charming Christoph Fritz and we go for a very Austrian classic, the 1955 movie Sissi! A story about “hook”ing up, animal cruelty and no stakes. We marvel in the use of the Austrian landscape, the dressmaking and the mad raves thrown by the royalty!
