Bill & Claire’s Excellent Adventures

Parenting while watching movies feels like a minefield. Bill’s challenge is how to introduce his 10-year-old daughter Claire, at her own request, to more complex entertainment than Saturday morning cartoons.  So, they are going on an adventure to expand her cinematic horizons. Each episode, they’ll watch a movie and then have a conversation to analyze what they saw. Listen along with your kids and let us know what they think!

This week, we were meant to be talking Varsity Blues (stay tuned for that next week!), but we got sidetracked with what became a special behind-the-scenes look at how we pick titles for the podcast. Bill & Claire's Excellent Adventures is about expanding Claire's cinematic horizons and it's important I'm not the only curator. She has to learn how to pick titles for herself, too. This ep is how we work through title selection as both father and daughter and also as creative partners. I hope you dig it!

Bill & Claire's Excellent Adventures is back! Claire has spent most of her summer on a swim team, in the water every single day. So, how could our first episode back be anything other than Steven Spielberg's masterpiece - maybe the greatest movie of all time - Jaws? We caught it at our local Alamo Drafthouse and I've never seen someone more into a movie. And to top it off, Danielle is joining us for the conversation! It's good to be back!

We're back to discuss Gurinder Chadha's awesome football flick BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM starring Parminder Nagra and Keira Knightley. This movie does an amazing job showing the challenges of women trying to find their way when their dreams clash with their parents' cultural expectations. We get into who gets to decide success, the impact of systemic racism across generations, and the importance of being you.

Welcome fellow Avengers! We - along with tens of millions of people - headed to the theater last weekend to celebrate the MCU's epic conclusion to the Infinity Saga - a feat longer in the making than Claire has been alive! We dig into our love of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Endgame. And that leads to some heavy conversations about the value of revenge, crying in public, and the pervasiveness of sexism.
