Episode 013: Sorry to Bother You

Recorded on Saturday, July 11, 2020

Set in an alternate-reality version of modern-day Oakland, Calif., director Boots Riley’s 2018 comedy Sorry to Bother You stars LaKeith Stanfield as Cassius Green, who goes from rags to riches after he becomes a high-powered telemarketer through the use of what’s known in the movie as his “white voice.” The movie’s biting in its social commentary and wildly surprising in its sci-fi twist, which is equal parts shocking, terrifying and hilarious. Get ready for a mindf—, and for some low-key talk about social revolution that just might earn this humble pod a few listeners from certain federal agencies.
