They Podcast is a miniseries covering the films of John Carpenter beginning in August 2021.
The ultimate Ben's Choice! The March Madness 2021 champion miniseries on the films of John Carpenter has finally arrived. This year's March Madness was totally normal, and Carpenter was the champion of the Ben Bracket and defeated Karen Han's pick Gore Verbinski.
Milestones and Ephemera
- The tentative schedule was announced in early August, ushering in the start of Carpenter Spooky Season. 
- On October 12, 2021, @blankcheckpod tweeted "WHAT" in response to twitter user @AleLogIMDb reporting that when he told Carpenter about the series, he said “Wow, that’s nice.”  If true, Carpenter would be the third director to be cognizant of/acknowledge their miniseries, after Nancy Meyers and Gina Prince-Bythewood.
