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.
Welcome back to season five of Paul and Corey Cross the Streams! This year, Paul and Corey have decided to try something a bit different: Instead of monthly themes, they’ve decided to improvise. Each subsequent episode will in some way be linked to the one that preceded it.
Based on Corey’s Amsterdam (2022), Paul figured, “Let’s keep the FDR-train rolling!” and so he chose Annie (1982). Once again set in 1933, Annie asks the question we thought Paul McCartney had answered, “Can I buy me love?” From the classic right-wing comic strip to the inscrutable decision to have John Huston direct to the Michael-Mann-esque climax to Corey’s teenage infatuation with Ann Reinking in Pippin to even (leapin’ lizards) Bolsheviks, this episode has it all.
This Episode’s Focus: Annie (1982)
Host’s Choice: Paul Pakler
