725: Sooz Reviews, Titanic Truthers, & The SNL Problem


Show Notes

In episode 725, we start with a brand new segment we’re calling Sooz Reviews where Susie tells us which things to watch or read. Today she’s giving her thoughts on a bunch of stand-up specials made by women comics including Sarah Silverman, Amy Schumer, Hannah Gatsby, Wanda Sykes, and Leanne Morgan. She talks about how exciting it is to have more perspectives on the stage instead of the same old jokes. We try to understand people who insist on believing in conspiracy theories about things that are not really up for debate (we’re looking at you Flat Earthers) including people who think the Titanic didn’t sink or was sunk purposely. We discuss the 1972 Best Documentary film, MarJoe, and how we can’t believe we didn’t hear about it before. Marjoe was a child preacher who decided to return to revivals just to make money even though he didn’t believe his message any more and let a film crew document his methods of swindling people. Plus, we talk about the issues SNL has had over forty years, and the reasons Lorne Michaels hasn’t been held accountable for the deaths, alleged assaults, and misconduct among the cast.
