The More Gooder Than Podcast

MAKING YOU LOVE THE MOVIES YOU HATE AND HATE THE MOVIES YOU LOVE, ONE ARGUMENT AT A TIME

PATREON IS THE MOST DIRECT WAY TO SUPPORT THE SHOW

Patreon is a way to join your favorite creator's community and pay them for making the stuff you love. Instead of literally throwing money at your screen (trust us, that doesn’t work), you can now pay a few bucks per month to support what you love. This means the creator gets paid regularly and you become a bonafide, real-life patron of the arts.  That’s right--Imagine you, in a long frilly white wig, painted on a 10-foot canvas on the wall of a Victorian mansion.  And imagine your favorite creators making a living doing what they do best… because of you. The EXTRA good news is that you actually get MORE than just the warm feeling of patronage. Go to our Page and look at all the lovely rewards you can receive in return!

Zach Hall just wants you to know one thing:  he is absolutely, no way in hell, without a doubt, NOT Karl Urban.  So stop asking!  Don't stop leaving glowing reviews for all of your favorite stunningly brilliant Karl Urban films, however;  Zach has nothing at all against the fine actor and handsome human being and totally different person that is Karl Urban.  Zach can be found on the amazing (Urbanesque, in his own words) Dungeons and Drongos podcast, in addition to not starring in such films as Judge Dredd and Star Trek, which feature Karl Urban.

Paris Burns is truly unique, even among the rogue's gallery of awesome and eccentric oddballs that make up our Wall of Fame.  A Changeling from the fabled poison mines of Perth, Paris has delighted mortals for centuries with the countless forms she's taken.  When she's not busy recording the sublime Dungeons and Drongos podcast and being kind to animals, you can find her racing to and fro across the continent atop Bunyip, her loyal ram-steed, ever in search of new shapes to assume!

What can be said about Nathan Boles? Renaissance Man. World Traveler. Bacchanalia enthusiast. Immortal? The list can go on and on, and it would still only scratch the surface of what one of the original Home Trees really is. Discovered by the Germans in 1904, Nate continues to leave his indelible mark on history. His most recent exploit was joining the MGT Patreon Pantheon, taking his rightful place among the gods. The Man, the Myth, the Legend: we all are forever in your debt!

Suck a grit, Billy Batson... the REAL Captain Marvel is here!  When mild-mannered gent Rhett Hall speaks the ancient southern magic word "GAWRSH," he becomes imbued with the powers of the Six Immortal Elders!  The folksy charm of Andy Griffith, the pioneering courage of Hank Aaron, the media savvy of Oprah Winfrey, the brute strength of Will Rogers, the sheer disdain for healthy living of Col. Harland Sanders, and the mental fortitude of Howard Hughes!  You can find him on the Wall Fly podcast, protecting Alabama from communists and malcontents!

Andre Saceaux:  The Faramir to Cory's Boromir.  The Loki to Cory's Thor.  The Rollo to Cory's Ragnar. Well, it's official-- younger brothers are always cooler than their tired old predecessors.  In true Dre fashion, he even scoffed at the existing tiers and created his own.  Always a contradiction, Andre somehow manages to be quietly supportive of those around him that he deems worthy while simultaneously being fiercely independent and doing his own thing.  If those two spheres happen to coincide... consider yourself very lucky!  The old midwives whisper that if you have an Andre on your side, your enemies will scatter before you and the ladies will no longer consider you a scrub.  We're grateful to have this one!

Our second Pennsylvanian to join the Wall of Fame, Super Movie Brother Dave is best known for replacing an aging David Prowse as the man inside the suit in the recent Rogue One:  A Star Wars Story.  Standing at a towering 7'5" and having long since mastered the Djem So and Ataru fighting styles, Dave was the obvious choice.  These days he's still on cloud nine following the victory of his beloved Eagles during the last Super Bowl.  Literally on Cloud Nine;  that's the name of his space station from which he views earth's cinema and sporting matches.  When he's not busy hosting lavish soirees for intergalactic dignitaries, you can hear him on the Super Movie Bros Podcast!  Go check him out!

What is there to say about Dame Sarai, She of Many Names?  An ageless trickster of the Fae Folk, Sarai recently pulled off what may be her finest prank:  creating a smaller version of herself and unleashing it upon the world.  That's right, now there's two of them!  We don't care what anyone else says, we think that's awesome!  In addition to being a very generous supporter and well-wisher, Sarai and her little homunculus are valued members of our gaming group.  She's also an accomplished ketomancer, binding carbohydrates with unmitigated fury and banishing them from the Earth Plane.  Truly a very special Home Tree; it's safe to say that More Gooder Than wouldn't be what it is without her relentless encouragement from day one.  In all the forest, no other Home Tree fills us with so much joy and warm fuzzies and juuuust the right amount of chilling terror to keep things interesting.

Thomas Howeth (Anglo-Saxon for Rock-Biter) currently hangs his sizable hat in some absurd fantasy realm called "Maryland."  When he actually enters the Earth plane he splits his time between hosting a podcast about some obscure 80's movie and training a cherubic little Padawan that looks suspiciously like a three foot tall version of himself.  Perhaps someday master and apprentice will take over "Maryland" (seriously, that doesn't even sound like a real place), but for now he's content just to enjoy earth's cinema.  And delicious lithosphere.  Pop on over to the Neverending Minute and say hi!  He won't bite!  You know, unless you're a rock.  Probably better to go do literally anything else if you're a rock.

In the course of human history, there have been many mothers. Eve, Whistler’s, Theresa, and the list could go on and on. However, one name will always be at the top of that list for MGT: Nan Carr, the one mom to rule them all and in the darkness bind them. The Mamaste herself has been one of our most supportive Home Trees since day 1, that’s not even including the fact that she brought The Big D himself into this world. Mama Carr: the legend that walks among us.


Drew Hallum is an entity of great complexity.  While most would consider him to be a wonderful and generous human being, those people are dead wrong!  I mean, not about the first part, obviously. He's one of the nicest fellows on the planet!  He's just not human.  Fun fact:  Drew actually belongs to the ancient race of Skal-dvergr, or Mug Dwarves.  However, unlike his curmudgeonly kin, he doesn't jealously guard his collection of mugs, cups, and other drinking vessels.  Nay, he displays them openly and without reservation, and is always willing to freely speak of them and their histories.  The bards say that if you fill a mug with bull's blood (or coffee or Dr. Pepper, whatever's most conveniently at hand), and speak thrice his name while gazing at your own reflection within the murky depths, Drew will appear and totally be down for a board game or whatever.  You'll probably lose, but the affable skal-dvergr is gracious in victory and won't even take your soul or anything!  


Steve and Izzy are your typical north-central Californians.  They live in a gem-filled Cave of Wonder, emerging daily to watch movies and tend to their majestic unicorn herd.  If you haven't tried their artisanal unicorn mare's milk cheese (available at Whole Foods or simply by wishing super hard for it during a meteor shower), you really should!  Provided, of course, you have a designated driver or aren't going anywhere for like ten hours, because that shit is basically the magical horse version of LSD.  Fantastic on crackers, though.  They also have a podcast called Everything I Learned From Movies, so pop over and give them a shout!  You might learn something too! 


The myth, the legend: Stephen "Kobayashi Maru" Galindo.  Why do we call him that?  Because the man simply can't be beat.  They say that when Stephen was born, the sky parted and for exactly seven minutes it rained a delicious mixture of Guinness and 18 year Glenfiddich.  The subsequent revelry and rejoicing ultimately ended in the destruction of several small towns in central California... but most folks agree that it was a reasonable price to pay for the coming of the Galindo.  Fun fact:  when he's not noodlin' around on the guitar, Stephen extracts minerals from the earth's crust WITH HIS BARE HANDS.  Like a freakin' BOSS.  Noted chaotician Ian Malcolm once remarked that when Stephen Galindo thrusts his mighty fists into the ground in Kern County, there's an apocalypse in Malaysia or some shit.
