    From The Spoilers Podcast:

    After a prolonged absence brought on by the 10 Plagues of the Spoilers. Bill and I have returned with another commentary: Raiders of the Lost Ark, the 1981 Spielberg blockbuster classic starring Harrison Ford and Karen Allen that started the Indiana Jones trilogy… or “quadrilogy” if they ever get Indy 4 going.

    Joining us this time is the recently Slashdotted singer/songwriter Jonathan Coulton, famous for his cover of Baby Got Back and, recently, Code Monkey. We take an exploratory look at Raiders as a movie the three of us grew up with pointing out actors who have gone on to bigger careers, bloopers and errors and other bits of trivia.
