Episode notes

This week we discuss the new film ‘CODA,’ which stands for “child of deaf adults.” And joining us is the hilarious comedian, and real-life child of deaf adults, Moshe Kasher. Moshe explains how accurate the film was at portraying the life of a “CODA,” as well as pointing out some of the more interesting American Sign Language translation choices. Plus, we answer a question on the ‘Hotline’ about bad movie recommendations. And, as always, we’ve got ‘Staff Picks.’

In news, Patty Jenkins says streaming movies look like “fake movies” and Michael K. Williams passes away.
