Episode details

On a fine Sunday afternoon, Jeff and Sasha hopped around from topic to topic like Brer Rabbit —- hippity-hop, hippity-hop. It’s a little early to call any Oscars, but (a) white males will once again face an uphill challenge and (b) how does Greta Gerwig not land a Best Director Oscar next year? Plus a short riff on “Jules,” the white-skinned, black-eyed alien who befriends Ben Kingsley while sharing a move from David Cronenberg’s “Scanners.”
