This week, Louis and the gang talk about biopics and what makes them great. They discuss Battle of the Sexes, Billie Jean King’s haircut, Selena, and what biopics NEED to be made already. Plus, Alonso is in love with Bojack Horseman, Karen thinks you should give Transparent season 4 a chance, Wynter talks up Lady Gaga’s documentary, and Louis wants more genuine “73 Question” interviews like Tracee Ellis Ross.

Karen Tongson – Melissa Etheridge – I’m the Only One
