Cinema Covenant
A podcast where friends cast movies upon each other like a curse.

Maya Hansen and Toben Shelby

Toben: Classical "nerd", reared on all the films deemed "classic" by the net-savvy collective millennial unconscious. Maya: Artist (read: Stoner), left to fend on their own, drawn instead to body horror and Japanese animation. One picks a movie that the other one hasn't seen, and makes them watch it. They switch back and forth each episode. Repeat until the death of film.

Bonus Episode: Spoiler Alert Reunion – Avengers: Infinity War

In 2008, three friends in college got together to do a geeky talk show on the radio station at the University of Alaska Anchorage.
10 years later, they got on the internet to do a podcast and talk about Avengers: Infinity War.
Talk to you again in 2028!
