Blank Check with Griffin and David Wiki

Podcast Me to Hell is a miniseries covering the films of Sam Raimi beginning in March 2022.


The miniseries was announced during March Madness 2022. [1] Raimi had twice appeared in March Madness tournaments. In 2018 he beat Warren Beatty in the first round, Joe Dante in the second, and was eliminated by the bracket winner Nancy Meyers in the third. In 2019 he beat Elaine May in the first round, Michael Bay in the second, Francis Ford Coppola in the third, and was eliminated by the bracket winner Jonathan Demme in the fourth. At that point, the friends decided they'd cover him eventually (i.e. whenever he released a new movie).

The titular inspiration is the film Drag Me to Hell. The series was preceded by The Podcastiano on the films of Jane Campion. It is followed by Pod That Jazzcast on the films of Bob Fosse.

Milestones and Ephemera[]

  • Ben's super sweaty miniseries name suggestion: Spider-Pod 3 Cast
  • Lots of talk about the weirdest/most awesome housemates ever: Raimi, the Coen Brothers, Frances McDormand, Holly Hunter, Kathy Bates.
  • Ben Nickname: TBD.


The timeline is based on the schedule in the announcement tweet, but is, of course, subject to change!
