Ankler Editor Richard Rushfield and co-host Emily Yoshida talk about the tragedy or non-tragedy of the coming-of-age movie Booksmart. Corners of social media are in shock that the indie comedy fell behind the Disney spectacle Aladdin. Is there injustice at work or did the hidden hand of Twitter secretly sabotage its own cause celebre? And then we chat about Hollywood’s growing Georgia boycott. Is Hollywood taking a big stand here or looking for a moment to grandstand?
Intro Music: Train Wreck by Kasey Chambers
Outro music: Georgia on My Mind by Hoagy Carmichael
