Happy Valentines Day! For this week's episode, Ryan, Brandice, and Nicole talk about a film where a character tells another character "This song will change your life." which seems like the perfect film to discuss on this podcast! That's right, we discuss Zach Braff's 2004 film, Garden State, and it's Grammy Award Winning Soundtrack. Ryan and Nicole originally saw the movie in its original theatrical run, while Brandice had never seen the film until she was tasked to for the podcast, so there's an interesting discussion about how the movie spoke to our 3 hosts. We talk about whether the soundtrack and film have aged gracefully, the influence that they had on popular culture, and why this film didn't lead to bigger and better things for our actor/writer/director triple threat. Of course we talk about The Shins, and Ryan shares about trying to help someone write their own version of Garden State.
