Icarus / The Spy Who Dumped Me
Let's get ready to ARGUUUUUUUUE!!!
We've had some contentious episodes on this show, but the debate around the Academy-Award winning documentary Icarus takes up almost the entire episode. Macintosh has some very strong opinions about how sports doping, Russia and the high-and-mighty tone of this film. Maud tries to retain the purity of the Olympic spirit while recognizing how long the movie gets. And then we both take a deep dive into VERY recent history into a scandal that is still going on, as we speak.
After that, we talk about a dumb movie that made us laugh a lot - The Spy Who Dumped Me! It was good. Go see it.
Macintosh & Maud have started a Patreon! Any little bit you can contribute helps, and we have special contributor-only content if you donate at the $3 level, including episodes on Apocalypse Now, Josie and the Pussycats (2001), and My Little Pony: Equestria Girls!
