Despondent over losing one of their own to the metropolis called New York City (in the movies, Metropolis), the Film Pigs scramble for a comforting subject in the form of Indiana Jones. This podcast is an episode of The Bacon, where the Pigs delve deep into a single subject, talk it straight into the ground, and then keep talking some more.

The Pigs break down the magic behind Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (IMDb). And by “magic” we mean “crappy CGI effects combined with a convoluted plot.”
