The boys are making a return trip to Slovakia to discuss a film that no one wanted to guest on! That's right, they're discussing Eli Roth's controversial and (dare they say it?) feminist sequel Hostel: Part II!

Join them as they discuss the rapid decline of the torture porn sub-genre between 2006 and 2007, the accusations of misogyny lodged against the film, and Roth's progressive decision to make the protagonist of his sequel a lesbian (whom he doesn't objectify!) while casting out-and-proud lesbian Heather Matarazzo as the character who gets the film's most brutal death (in a scene that got the film banned in several countries).

Also, Trace tries to come up with a synonym for the word "castration," Joe gives a brief oral history of the word "cunt" and they both try to figure out why Jordan Ladd needs so much sleep.
