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!
