Unquote is a weekly podcast that examines movies and the quotable pieces therein that make their way into pop ­culture and beyond. A randomized selection from the American Film Institute’s Top 100 Movie Quotes serves as a jumping off point each episode. A little  factual and a lot of fun; ­it’s the least contentious peanut gallery in history.

Hosted by: Cooper Powers

Unquote #17:Listeners, I've got a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore...

Released on Friday, November 18th 2016 @ 7:01PM

Suicide, HD remakes, and trivia, oh my! This week the Rogue Intel wizard and DJ behind the curtain is Duff! We talk about the Wizard of Oz's long lasting impact and how its up to us to prevent corruption of today's youth.  AFI's Top 100 list has a triple threat quote this episode with numbers #4, #23, and #99. Don't fall asleep in the poppies!


Unquote #16: Go ahead, listen to this podcast...

Released on Sunday, October 2nd 2016 @ 9:47PM


Greetings fans! Unquote is back this week with #6 on AFI's Top 100 Movie Quotes. Prepare to squint like Clint this week as Dirty Harry takes the quote stage. This week is brief but potent! Also, Unquote will be coming to an end unfortunately. I have had a great time making these episodes and am so thankful for the Rogue Intel Network for hosting my show! Only 4 more episodes until the series finale so stay tuned.


This week I talk about: Why you never want to accidentally break and enter somewhere in Colorado, Clint Eastwood's background in politics, and...Reaganomics?



Unquote #15: You're gonna need a bigger podcast...

Released on Sunday, July 31st 2016 @ 9:16PM


Number 35 on AFI's list is a fish tale of epic proportions!  Will and I talk about Jaws and how being a procrastinator can save your life! Dive in and enjoy!



Unquote #14: Unquote, for lack of a better word, is good

Released on Sunday, June 5th 2016 @ 6:51PM


This week is #57 on AFI's list. My guest Patrick and I discuss the almighty dollar, why nickels and dimes scare me, and why we missed out on the early dune buggy investment game. We could've made a killing!

Special post roll of Unquote is me listing my top 5 favorite movies!


Unqoute #13: I'll listen to what she's listening!

Released on Monday, May 23rd 2016 @ 7:18AM


We're on a roll (or rye bread) this week! My guest Erin and I talk about #33 on AFI's Top 100 Movie Quotes from the romcom "When Harry Met Sally". The 1989 film saw Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan become friends, enemies, and finally lovebirds. The line this week is the only line spoken by a cameo actor; how neat!

In this episode Erin and I discuss:

Why baby fish mouth should be in Webster's dictionary

Reuben and, alternatively, non-Reuben sandwhiches

Why I should I always bring a wrench and a spare t-shirt on dates

The forthcoming remake of When Harry Met Sally directed by Erin



Unqoute #12: Well, no podcast is perfect!

Released on Wednesday, May 18th 2016 @ 7:44PM


#48 on AFI's Top 100 Movie Quotes list is Billy Wilder's gender-bending romantic comedy "Some Like It Hot". Its a tale of love, loss, and learning to duck when someone throws cole slaw at you! My mom was a mother on this past Mother's Day so I sat down to talk with her about the movie.

In the episode we discuss:

Why they should encourage Lemon's cross-dressing acting method

How violence and comedy can balance each other out

Why my name is *not* Osgood Beanstalk Powers

And finally, the travails of imperfect people living in an imperfect world.


Unquote #11: Hasta la vista, listeners!

Released on Monday, May 9th 2016 @ 3:07PM

Welcome back to the Season 2 premiere of Unquote! Arnold the polyglot returns as a Spanish one-line dealing maquina. Brother Ben returns and cousin Adam rejoices! 

In this episode we discuss James Cameron's "altruistic" movie making, Adam's undying love and detailed files on the Austrian Oak, origins of the phrase "hasta la vista baby", and my era-specific phonetic shortcomings



Unquote #10: I'm the king of the podcasts!

Released on Monday, April 4th 2016 @ 7:22PM


I can't believe I recorded the whole thing....It's the tenth episode of Unquote! It has been such a fun journey so far and as Season 1 gets buckled up, I buckle down with my friend Kyle and we talk sinking ships and French girl lips. #100 on AFI's list is James Cameron's "Titanic", an epic tale about stern-crossed lovers and a huge lesson in sharing (Rose, we're talking to you and your floating headboard). This episode Kyle and I discuss why this quote was probably the cheesy reason Leo hasn't won an Oscar until now, parallel love story universes, and why Sierra Nevada beer can carry anyone through a 3 hour movie. See you in a few weeks with Season 2 of Unquote!



Unquote #09: Hey Listener! This podcast has always depended on awesome quotes...

Released on Tuesday, March 29th 2016 @ 10:56PM


Contrary to popular belief, there isn't a streetcar named "Desire" operating in NOLA...so stop asking! This week is a two-for; #45 and #75 on AFI's list are for discussion between Kali and I. In this episode we discuss: why a Seinfeld episode might've been inspired by this movie, how when you booze you lose, and why Kali and are I through with this crazy thing called love.
