Home Alone Series Episode 1

Have You Checked The Children?

You may be carving pumpkins this weekend, but Arnie, Stuart, and Justin are wrapping up a podcast review of the original Home Alone as an early present for Winter 2023 Silver Level Donors. Does Macauley Culkin’s unchaperoned spree through the Chicago suburbs play this far out from Christmas?  Or is there something about the way the 8-year-old decks the halls… and decks home invaders Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern… that works as a gory Halloween treat?  Donate today and let the South Bend Shovel Slayer get the Yuletide season started!
