Episode 17: Spork

Today, we have an audience suggestion! C. Paul Courtney suggested we watch the indie film, Spork. And we did. We found it to be an interesting, but flawed piece.

For citation purposes, Jordan mentioned an interview he read with the film’s director, J.B. Ghuman, Jr. You can find that here. Carlin talked about krumping. Here’s an interesting article about that movement.
