This week’s episode dives into down-South magical American musical O Brother, Where Art Thou? Along for the ride is co-host Caroline Diezyn, who sheds some light on why the movie’s directors, the Coen Brothers, are probably full of it when they claim they’ve never read The Odyssey.
We also talk about the music, George Clooney’s hunkiness, and vapid political rhetoric.
The paper that Caroline references in the episode is Janice Siegel’s “The Coens’ O Brother, Where Art Thou? and Homer’s Odyssey“.
