Fateful Findings – Dare Daniel Podcast Episode 104
“It’s a magical day!”
This week, action obtainer Daniel Barnes and insurance company Corky McDonnell hack into pan-hyphenate auteur Neil Breen’s unfathomable Fateful Findings. It’s as though Breen beamed this incomprehensible, egomaniacal, paranoid fever dream from an alien planet that studied human behavior but didn’t pay attention.
Elsewhere, Daniel and Corky discuss magic stones, smoke ghosts, messiah music and hara-kiri press conferences.

This week’s darer: Gunnar Pearson
Gunnar’s dare: “You guys talk about bad movies and every show or podcast that talks about bad movies must at one point review a film by true American auteur Neil Breen. Fateful Findings is a romantic drama . . . I guess? Breen is the writer, director, lead actor, editor, set dresser and about a hundred other things, and he is awful at all of them. Neil Breen is like an alien that learned all his knowledge of humanity by watching The Room, Love on a Leash and Dangerous Men.”
IMDB synopsis: “A computer-scientist/novelist reunites with his childhood friend, hacks into government databases, and faces the dire and fateful consequences of the mystical actions he obtained as a child.”
