On this week’s episode, Ankler Editor Richard Rushfield and film maven Emily Yoshida discuss the just debuting Cannes Film Festival. Who is it for? How much fun is it to visit on someone else’s dime? Would the tens of millions spent by studios catering to this media gala be better off being set on fire? And then we talk the GoT conclusion. Where does it’s exit leave HBO and what does this decade long, slow moving series say about what’s still possible in our ADD culture?

    I’m listening to this based on the title which is just too enjoyable. Also I watch France 24 for my ‘regular’ news and, of course, Cannes to always big with them no matter how much they tell me the climate is in crisis. Somehow that climate crises never means people should (1) stop making movies or (2) stop flying around the world to Cannes and other spots.

    Enjoyed the podcast even though I’ve not watched GoT at all (I’ve been saying that a lot recently) and hardly any Hollywood product.
