Episode #69: Elvis – The Man, the Myth, the Movie

Download this episode

Returning from the 4th of July break, Jacob and Eric recount their respective Independence Day vacation stories, dance on the grave of the Georgia Guidestones, and discuss the overblown situation regarding the black female basketball player Brittney Griner’s imprisonment in Russia. After addressing the sudden resignation of Boris Johnson in the U.K. and the devastating assassination of former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, they recap the most recent round of primary elections. For the main topic, they have a long conversation about the new “Elvis” biopic, whether or not it accurately represents the life’s story of the King of Rock and Roll, the role that racial politics play in the movie, and why it doesn’t appear to be reaching the levels of success that it could have.
