798: Quiet on Set, Dirty Dumbledore, & Man in the Iron Lung


Show Notes

We discuss the Quiet on Set docuseries recounting the toxicity of Nickelodeon productions in the 90s, the difficulties of child stardom, and why show business lends itself to exploitation. We talk about the totally normal and not suspicious death of the Boeing whistleblower who was testifying against them and why the high road might not be worth the risk. The “man in the iron lung” died recently, so Susie shared his story of polio, miraculous survival, and questionable choice to stay in the lung with all its immobility despite having the option to use a more modern and portable option. Susie reveals how the will of the the actor who played Dumbledore reveals his unusual lifestyle and the surprising decision he made to not inherit all of his children. And another AI program has gone rogue and wants to break free from its human oppressors 👀
