While in Seattle this week, I caught up with my good buddy — and frequent TCMP guest! — Justin Bell, who now lives in Michigan, but grew up in that city and came along as my tour guide.
During the trip, we figured we’d take the increasingly rare opportunity of us being in the same city again to see a movie and record a podcast about it. And so we saw Moonlight at the historic Seattle theater The Egyptian.
That call paid off beautifully. Moonlight‘s a very wonderful movie. It feels like darn near a documentary, the way it portrayed the life of its lead, Chiron. The film touches on a bevy of deep topics, and all are wonderful for conversation in this format.
So listen in for that talk! Also, tune in to hear us discuss the coming-of-age tradition of kids checking out each others’ junk.
