We Own This City - S01E04 – Part Four – Feedback

Looking at the systemic problems impeding justice, we wonder: how do we create solutions? And that’s the rub, there are no immediate solutions. The way forward will be incremental changes over years. Sounds like too long? It is. This is a multigenerational problem. Hopefully the addition of shows like The Wire and We Own This City are changing minds and bringing more attention to issues that need to be dealt with.

And thank you to the Baltimore residents who write in to check the authenticity of the show and provide more context. And for confirming Jon Bernthal’s Baltimore dialect is accurate.

It’s got everything: clues, conspiracy, and the most toned-down Nic Cage performance on record.

We Own This City - S01E04 – Part Four

With only two episodes left to go, we are soon approaching the end of We Own This City. We hear the title of the show said in this episode and it’s as infuriating as it should be. The show asks the question, when the bully cops go too far even by the other bully cops standards, why do those people who could do something, still do nothing? When this corruption and violence is the input of this horrid policing, then this unrest is the logical output.

Bald Move Prestige - The VVitch (2015)

VVe are rounding out our Robert Eggers coverage vvith this commissioned episode covering The VVitch. Is this puritanical family suffering from shared hallucination, or real curse? Under the evil imagery, is Eggers telling us a dark fairytale or allegory for a repressive environment? Maybe it’s both and either vvay, this movie is burned into our minds. This movie excels at vvorking its vvay into your subconscious and making you feel absolutely uncomfortable. Thank you Joey for commissioning this podcast!
