Pretty in Podcast covers the 1983 New Zealand film Savage Islands, better known as Nate and Hayes, starring Tommy Lee Jones, Michael O’Keefe and Jenny Seagrove. It was written by David Odell, based on a story by Lloyd Phillips, Rob Whitehouse and David Odell. It was, at one point, given a rewrite by John Hughes. And, if this film seems like very un-John Hughes film, there’s a very, very good reason for that . . .

Part of Pretty in Podcast’s series inspired by the works of John Hughes. The Joy of Sex has a history far too long to keep in just one episode, so I broke it up into three parts. John Hughes part of the story doesn’t come in until the second part of the series. Instead, I set up The Joy of Sex‘s early development as a movie.This episode has some explicit content, I talk at a faster rate than normal, and I fake accents, to get it all in under a half hour. How can I breathe????!!!! This episode also talks about The Joy of Sex: a Gourmet Guide to Lovemaking, Charles Grodin’s Movers & Shakers (1985), Dudley Moore, and the hardcore pornographic film Deep Throat.
