Scott and Baleigh Have Opinions About Movies

And our friends hate that about us. So we made a podcast so we can watch movies and then talk about them: what they are really about, their accomplishments and mistakes, who gave the best and worst performances. We also include a lot of interesting trivia about the actors and filming process and history of the movies along the way.

This is kind of like a book club, but for movies, and for people who don’t have enough friends interested in scrutinizing movies to death to make a movie club. So if you like thinking about movies, you should follow along. Make sure you watch the movie first, because there will be spoilers. 

If you’ve ever been told, “Relax, it’s just a movie,” this could be the podcast for you.

If you’d like to tell us why we’re wrong or give us ideas for movies we should discuss in the future, tweet us @ScottandBaleigh or email us at scottandbaleigh@gmail.com.

Scott Bailey

A self-described comedian, aspiring human male, and pathological liar, Scott got his start in media by starting this podcast. It was originally Baleigh’s idea, but he has since acquired all of the credit and none of the blame. This is why his name is listed first.

Baleigh Scott

A devoted wife and loving mother of two, Baleigh Scott is actively hiding behind her pseudonym and various other clouds of lies so as not to embarrass her daughters with her outrageous fame. She was recruited for this podcast by Scott, shortly after losing all legal ownership of it. She has written for a variety of publications about much less interesting things.
