Carrie

This week, we are joined by the directors of the brand new Ruth Bader Ginsburg documentary, RBG, Betsy West and Julie Cohen. They are on to discuss the Brian De Palma classic Carrie. Believe it or not, in this episode several similarities are drawn between the "Notorious RBG" and Carrie White. Julie and Betsy discuss what the world was like when Carrie was released and the type of workplace humiliations they had to put up with back then. Betsy even shares a story involving a penis shaped cake. They dig into the importance and power of Justice Ginsburg and how she actually changed the world. They also discuss the techniques they use to interview people, making sure not to manipulate the audience, and staring at Ruth Bader Ginsburg while she watched the documentary.

RBG opens theatrically on May 4th.
