Our somewhat live Oscar podcast, 2012! We recorded our thoughts in staccato bursts throughout Billy Crystal's triumphantly comfortable return to the microphone to preside over the Kodak Theatre Battle 2012, The Artist vs. Hugo. Now all eleven segments are joined together a single downloadable episode, for your nostalgic pleasure. Remember, kids, going to the movies is great.
