Episode 40: Weird Meat and ‘Wake In Fright’ with Benjamin Partridge

Episode 40

8th June 2018

This week the gang is lucky enough to be joined by Britain’s own, “Beef and Dairy Network” host Ben Partridge. It’s a staff choice episode, again. And this time it’s April’s pick. Her choice is the 1971 Australian psychological thriller, Wake In Fright. The gang takes apart the film and what makes it so relevant to today’s society. Alonso even calls it “Toxic masculinity, the movie.” The movie can be a bit brutal and the crew makes sure to touch upon the infamous kangaroo hunting scene. Plus, in celebration of having a beef expert on the show, the gang discusses eating meat in cinema, in a segment obviously titled “Weird Meat.”
