Welcome to Screen Tea Podcast! Jump on a bus and head to the small town of Ridiculous Podcasters, because this week Lisha and Jules are covering Kenneth Lonergan's directorial debut, 2000's You Can Count on Me! Let us all sit down for a mildly (wildly?) uncomfortable lunch together while Lisha spirals down a pit of Lonergan-dialogue obsession, Jules fights tooth and nail to pronounce ANYTHING related to the damn DIRECTOR of the film, and both of them cock their heads in confusion over Brian (seriously, what the fuck?). Actually, if you just want to grab some more refreshments, actually, and prepare yourself for some Mark Ruffalo, Laura Linney and Rory Culkin adoration, all you have to do is settle in and hit play...actually.
