Episode 118: Night Train to Lisbon
Raimund Gregorius, having saved a beautiful Portuguese woman from leaping to her death, stumbles upon a mesmerizing book by a Portuguese author, which compels him to suddenly abandon the boring life he has led for years and to embark on an enthralling adventure.
Every human has a story. The vast majority of them are boring. Imagine giving up your job, home, friends, and possessions to go learn everything you could about a random person's uninteresting story. You'd have the basis for this podcast AND the plot of Night Train to Lisbon. Our hero, enchanted by some poetry in a book, walks out of his job, hops on a train to a different country, and spends a week bringing closure to a mystery no one was asking to be solved. The bigger mystery is how this two-hour movie managed to feel like a four hour one which, coincidentally, is how long Gordon and I spent at the theater this week to watch Deadpool 1 and 2. Next week, we're watching The Good Neighbor.
