The Dogcast: The Pat Walsh Show For 05/13/22

Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with another appearance on The Pat Walsh Show! This week is the Friday The 13th edition. Pat and I talk the new Firestarter and a Peacock Original film “The Outfit!” Also have some fun talking about a story in which being called “bald” qualifies as sexual harassment, Friday The 13th movies that ironically have nothing to do with Friday The 13th. We also remember the late, great character actor Fred Ward, probably most famous for playing astronaut Gus Grissom in “The RIght Stuff” and teaming with Kevin Bacon for the cult classic monster flick “Tremors.” Enjoy the Pat Walsh Show and as always, feel free to comment below or on my Facebook page! So Sayeth The Kendog!
