Million Dollar Baby / Monkey Shoulder

Million Dollar Baby / Monkey Shoulder

The guys are joined this week by Jen Lowers, a PhD student at Kent State University whose research deals with reading alternative texts, including film. She brings her expertise to bear on Clint Eastwood's 2004 opus Million Dollar Baby. The gang offers opinions on whether Paul Haggis' script is worthy or awful, the challenges of being the only female in a male-dominated film, and the muddiness of Eastwood's morals.

All the while, your hosts are sipping on the very first Scotch to be reviewed on the show: Monkey Shoulder, a delicious blended bottle.
