There are many social media friends out there among us who have only met in the virtual sense. This big connected world allows that kind of long-distance connection. Nonetheless, nothing beats a hug, a handshake, or face-to-face interaction between two people. For the Cinephile Hissy Fit podcast on the Ruminations Radio Network, Will Johnson hails from Phoenix, Arizona and Don Shanahan calls Chicago, Illinois home. The odds of them ever meeting together in the same room, let alone making some content together, was slim. Those odds shattered recently when Will traveled to Chicago for family matters and got to hang put with Don.
For our 22nd episode, the hosts kick off the start of a special series: “CHF on the Road.” 25YL film critics, dad-bod dads, and OnlyFans-hiding school teachers Will Johnson and Don Shanahan have bridged their virtual distance from Phoenix to Chicago to share a room and microphone for the very time! If you thought they tussled a bunch from afar, imagine them sharing the same space. For the occasion, the format loosens for Will and Don to openly talk about their love/hate picks of Chicago-set movies. From Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and Backdraft to High Fidelity and Love Jones, our guys paint the “Second City” in popcorn and profanity.
