We offer an entertaining look at some of the big issues in history by examining public apologies of the famous and infamous. We're looking at politicians, serial killers, actors, and you! Send us an apology you would like to make to someone and we'll read it on the podcast and give you the chance to redeem yourself or just get some guilt off your shoulders. We're here for you, once a week, maybe more if you are really, really sorry.

NOTE—we had a small audio problem at the 25 minute mark. Blame Jason—Arco does. It's official--the Russo Brothers make real good Marvel movies. That's Jason's take after his second Captain America outing, 2016's Civil War [29:45]. Did Arco share a similar opinion of Robert Eggers after seeing his "obtuse" 2019 black and white two-hander, The Lighth…
 
Arco and Jason came together for their first Unchallenged episode. Entirely on his own, Jason went out and saw the monocultural touchstone that is Spider Man: No Way Home. Is it worth the watch? Does it merit Oscar consideration? What has Tobey Maguire been doing since The Great Gatsby? Why does Tom Hardy talk like that? Is Benedict Cumberbatch hap…
 
Blake McCoy was a TV news reporter who wayback about one year ago Tweeted (and because it's Twitter, you know there is gonna be an issue) that obese people shouldn't be prioritized for vaccines. He felt that the priority should go to all essential workers like health care workers and newscasters. He got some heat and apologized 3 hours later, delet…
 
After Arco spent two weeks in the 1970s, was he grateful for Paul Schrader's 2021 meditation on existential dread and humanity's inability to find redemption? And did Jason welcome a non-Marvel Universe challenge, the 2020 end-of-the-world, Gerard Butler thriller Greenland? The short answers? Yes. Mostly. Connect with Movie Challenge Accepted The S…
 
In the 1960s, during the time of peace love and groovy, the City of Santa Monica forced an entire community of People of Color to move so that a freeway could be built to allow more (whiter) people direct access to the beach. Santa Monica had been home to a thriving community of black business owners, homeowners, and renters. The first freed black …
 
Jason kept Arco in the 1970s this week, challenging him with a seminal NYC movie, the original Taking of Pelham 123 [03:39]. But then things take a turn south, because Arco made Jason watch Joss Whedon's second bite at the Avengers apple, 2015's Age of Ultron [32:00]. Jason had enjoyed the first Avengers movie. This one? Not so much. Connect with M…
 
Teachers are America's heroes. They work hard and are largely undervalued for the important role they play. An ice hockey (is all hockey played on ice?) team decided to honor some teachers by inviting them to apply for a half-time "Dash for Cash." The idea was simple: put a bunch of teachers together around a big pile of dollar bills and let the fu…

After a brief hiatus due to illness, Jason exposed Arco to the quiet, sad genius that is Peter Yates' 1973 Boston-noir classic, The Friends of Eddie Coyle [02:45], while Arco sent Jason back to the Bay--Michael Bay's ode to masculine obligation (and quirky Nicholas Cage facial expressions), The Rock [33:18]. Sorry for the delay, but we think this o…
 
It's our annual bonus episode! Apologies Accepted is the guest podcast this week on MetaPod. Catch Juliette and Theo in their first recorded interview as they talk about the show and all things apology. MetaPod introduces listeners to new and different podcasts from across the world (which is round and contains more countries than just Los Angeles …
 
It's our Christmas episode. Christmaschristmaschristmaschristmaschristmaschristmaschristmas. We love it - the lights, the music, the cookies, the racist caricatures! Ah, Christmas - the yuletide celebration that brings the world closer together. A lovely time of year when we ask ourselves the eternal questions like: what is the meaning behind a bla…
 
Business rule #1 is donut mess with the cops (it’s a pun! And episode 43!). Business rule #2 is don’t lay-off 900 people as if you were sad about having to take out the garbage and then go on an anonymous chat board to say people deserved it. Vishal Garg (not a Smurf) didn’t know about rule #2, or chose not to follow it because the rules don’t appl…
 
This week, Arco crosses the pond, watching Jean Pierre Melville's Le Samouraï, the 1967 noir masterpiece, co-starring the Paris metro (1:05), while Jason enjoys the best Marvel movie he's seen (it's a short list)--Captain America: The Winter Soldier (38:54). Along the way, the boys dive into podcasting as therapy, the French army's performance in W…
 
Alice Sebold misidentified a man as a rapist and that man spent 16 years wrongfully imprisoned for a crime he didn’t commit. She wrote a memoir about the rape and the trial of the man she believed assaulted her. The memoir was a huge bestseller and she went on to literary fame, writing several novels to both critical and commercial success. Recentl…
 
Arco experiences Nicolas Winding Refn for the first time, while Jason revisits Michael Bay--possibly never to return. On this episode, we discuss Only God Forgives (41:48) and Transformers (01:45), two films that couldn't be more different. One is fearless, thought provoking, and transgressive, while the other has giant CGI robots. Connect with Mov…
 
Russ and Phylis have been victims of Christmas pranksters since 2016. One year the baby Jesus was stolen out of their nativity scene, later returned thanks to the miracle of faith and a very passive aggressive 3-foot-tall sign that Phylis posted on the front lawn. Another year baby Jesus was stolen and never returned. In 2019 the merry pranksters s…
 
This week, Arco dips his toe into the boundless sea of pure consciousness that is David Lynch, with 1997's Lost Highway (01:15). For his part, Jason does a 2 1/2 reverse pike into the chlorine-saturated Marvel Universe, watching 2012's The Avengers (34:57). Listen, as Jason weeps for the future of filmmaking while Arco questions his sanity. Connect…
 
Snoopy is cooking Thanksgiving dinner and everyone is invited! Jellybeans and toast for all - including Franklin, the only black kid in the world of Charlie Brown and Peanuts! Franklin gets a seat at the table all by himself as the other kids crowd around the opposite side of the table. Some people see this moment in the show as emblematic of the b…
 
For the premiere episode, Arco challenged Jason to pick up the Fast and the Furious saga at its high-water mark, 2011's Fast Five (03:19). Jason challenged Arco to get through Solaris (38:30), Andrei Tarkovsky's 1972 exploration of existential dread set in a crumbling--yet finely furnished--space station. No one got through this one unharmed. Conne…
 
In the early 2000s, Paris Hilton was seen as a joke. She was a dumb spoiled rich girl, and it seemed as if the media was forcing her upon the world for. No. Good. Reason. When a private video tape was released, the public largely said she deserved what she got – and maybe she was even using the video to get more famous. Either way it was somehow al…
 
Harry Styles found himself in a bit of hot water with Billy Porter. Harry had posed on the cover of Vogue, in a dress, and Billy was pretty angry over all the praise Harry was receiving. Billy said some things that he later apologized for, explaining that all he’d ever received was scorn for wearing women’s fashion, but here comes a handsome straig…
 
MOVE was a quasi-political organization that began in the 1970s. Ex-members say it is a cult, current members say it is a peaceful back-to-nature movement meant to reunited mankind with the natural world. In 1978 the City of Philadelphia said it was a terrorist organization that needed to be dealt with, and the city did just that with 400 cops, tan…
 
It’s our Halloween special! One summer in 1692 some village girls began behaving strangely. Witches were the only explanation and so began one of the darkest periods in early American history – The Salem Witch Trials. 200 people were sent to jail and 20 were killed by public execution. The Witch Trials lasted about a year, and seemingly stopped jus…
 
Our first season draws to a close and our big take away – there are a lot of apologies out there! So we are going above and beyond as we highlight the most notable and give awards to some really deserving apologies. Not every apology earns an award, but each one was already a winner for having been a show episode. Although it’s the end of season 1,…
 
Totally planned and absolutely *not* by accident, our Spooky October Month-Long-Spectacular continues with an episode about Skinwalker Ranch, a ranch in Utah owned by a billionaire who wants to study the paranormal. Before that, the ranch was owned by a different billionaire who was studying flying saucers. Before that, it was owned by a nice ranch…
 
We take our second deep dive into the topic of UFOs and government cover-ups! On March 13, 1997 a huge flying object was reported by thousands of people across Arizona, New Mexico, and parts of Sonora, Mexico. The air force scrambled fighter jets to investigate. Local and national news stations covered the event, which became known as “The Phoenix …
 
Kevin Day was a radar operator for the Navy and working with the latest and greatest radar and tracking technology onboard the USS Princeton on November 10, 2004. He was highly trained, highly qualified, and highly respected for his skills – so people took notice when he spotted something on the radar that wasn’t supposed to be there. He reported i…
 
Kansas State Representative Mark Samsel was just having one of those days – he was working as a substitute teacher ($88 a day!), but the kids weren’t listening, and he was stressed, and gay parents were a thing in the world, and God had been talking to him all morning non-stop…so he did what many teachers have dreamed about, he kicked a kid in the …
 
We've all heard about Cancel Culture - but is it a real thing or just a political tool? Who gets canceled and why? Can the canceled be uncanceled? That's three questions in a row and that's the legal limit so buckle up and get ready for the origins of cancel culture, what it gets right, what it gets wrong, and why we should just ignore the fake dra…
 
Ellipses is a French publisher specializing in textbooks. Their 2019 textbook, "The History of the 20th Century in Cards" claimed that the CIA was responsible for 9/11. It wasn't until a French girl studying for her college exams reported the statement to her father, a high-school history teacher, that anyone seemed to care that a French publisher …
 
A police officer celebrating his 25th year in the force was surprised by his friend with a beautiful cake. The cake was meant to celebrate the officer’s long career in a pretty tough, sometimes thankless job. Instead the cake insulted the entire Philly police department. The cake was decorated with a Philly PD badge, but the PPD slogan “Honor, Inte…
 
Michael Chabon recently learned that people in Hollywood don't play nice, and if you are going to be in the game, you're gonna get hurt. Michael spent 20 years working with Scott Rudin, a huge Hollywood producer responsible for a ton of your favorite TV programs, movies, and Broadway shows. Scott was also responsible for throwing things at staff, c…
 
In 1997 President Bill Clinton apologized to a group of 8 black men from Alabama who were the last surviving members of the Tuskegee Experiment. In the early years of the 20th century it was believed by the medical community that black people and white people experienced syphilis differently. In 1932 two doctors set about studying how untreated syp…
 
Comedian Kathy Griffin had a bit of a quiet period in 2017. She decided to hire a famous photographer to take some “fun snaps” to send out for glorious self-promotion and maybe drum up some business. That day led to the infamous “Donald Trump as Medusa” photo that set the right-wing media afire and burned Kathy Griffin’s career to ashes. She apolog…
