Gutting the Sacred Cow
with Kevin Gootee
Introduce yourself.
Hi Vinnie, Ben Currier had me on his podcast and he was adamant that I reach out to you. When doing so, I found this opportunity to do your podcast. Here's my story: I'm in corporate America (it fucking sucks) as a medical sales rep and I started standup comedy back in 2010. I did so in hopes that's my ticket out of this shitty rat race. While doing 12 years plus in NYC, I fell into several different projects. I got into VO work. I've created several different shows: 1) Comics Watching Comics which aired for 8 seasons on Amazon Video. 2) Fantasy Football Jibber Jabber which is a hybrid fantasy football show/NFL betting advice 3) several failed podcasts but the glowing success is my current one, Gutting the Sacred Cow.

"You better be insanely unique/entertaining because 99.9% of people really don’t care…No matter what you think."

I don't have a specific story but I can tell you this: befriending certain people along the way have consistently told me one thing; they like me because I don't quit. And they want to help people who aren't quitters and put in the work.
Tell us about your podcast audience.
Our guests want to see who the hell has the balls to come after some of the most glorified films of all time: Back to the Future, Dark Knight, Batman 89, Star Wars, Pulp Fiction, Godfather 2. They also want to hear people attack some of the films that have undeserved love: 2001 a Space Odyssey, Casablanca, Gone with the Wind, Napoleon Dynamite.

They keep coming back because A) we're funny B) our segments are funny (Ask a gutter, Amazon 5 and 1 star reviews, 5 fun facts to name a few) C) They're curious to hear how someone can mount an attack against some of these films. D) They want to hear our reaction. Do we agree with them? Do we throw them into a buzzsaw?
What makes your podcast unique?
It's the best goddamn movie podcast out there. Why? Because NO ONE is doing what I am. We give our guests the platform who have unpopular opinions. Here's the deal:Myself and my co-host are 2 standup comedians who invite guests to pick a film they find overrated or hate and try to convince us to see their argument. But here's the twist, the film must meet 1 of these criteria: widely beloved, critically acclaimed, or financial success. So no dunking on Friday the 13th part 8, we all know it's a glorious piece of shit.
