Forrest Gump. Woody. Josh Baskin. Mailbox Elvis? Join in as we dig through the many roles of the immensely charming, always dazzling Tom Hanks. Whether it’s a film you can recite front to back or a small appearance on Happy Days as a karate expert intent on beating the Fonz (seriously), join Managing Editor Adam Kivel and a special guest from the worlds of music, comedy, journalism, and more as they analyze a project in the star’s storied filmography. This is Hanks for the Memories.
Can Tom Hanks save us from an epic of wigs, muttering, and puzzles? Only one podcast can find out! Consequence of Sound Managing Editor Adam Kivel is joined by Film Editor Dominick Suzanne-Mayer and Senior Staff Writer Blake Goble to unravel the mystery that is The Da Vinci Code. Together, they try to figure out how much exposition is too much, understand what everyone got so upset about, and decode the puzzle that is Tom Hanks’ hair. (“It’s like he’s auditioning to be a night-club vampire in a cage.”) But can Mr. Hanks’ charm save the day over a snooze of an “adventure”? Join us and find out!
