MULTIMEDIOCRITY #8 – “Multicultural Misappropriations”

A STATE-LINES.COM Podcast hosted by Shawn Talley and Matthew Hevey

MULTIMEDIOCRITY: The Broadcast! – Multicultural Misappropriations

// “I can’t sleep ’cause my bed’s on fire / Don’t touch me, I’m a real live wire” //

On this eighth installment of MULTIMEDIOCRITY, Doofin and Talley continue their never-ending quest to find the mythical middle ground on topics like politics, outrage culture, and cultural appropriation. The guys apologize for several things, but refuse to apologize for much more, including their unabashed love of pop music and fondness for a few terrible rap-rock tunes. They also review Edgar Wright’s latest, BABY DRIVER, and discuss the filmmaker’s resume, which would be spotless, were it not for that pesky Michael Cera fellow. All that, plus T.J. Miller’s bridge burning, some love for How I Met Your Mother, and more — it’s a mea culpa-heavy episode, heard exclusively on the State Lines Network!
