Paul and Corey Cross the Streams: Season 4, Episode 16 [A Long One and a Short One – ‘Duck Soup’ (1933)]

Paul and Corey Cross the Streams is a bi-monthly podcast in which hosts Paul Pakler and Corey Pepper watch and review streaming content. It’s the Great American Podcast where two friends learn about life as they float down the river of streaming services.

This month’s theme is an easy one: A Long One and a Short One. Clocking in at a tight 68 minutes, Paul picked the Marx Brothers’ Duck Soup (1933). The film was their fifth and final with Paramount before moving on to a new contract with MGM. While the film was greeted with a lukewarm reception from critics and audiences, Duck Soup is today broadly considered their best film and one of the best (albeit idiosyncratic) political satires of American cinema. This episode was a real treat to record.
