MULTIMEDIOCRITY #40 – “Higher, Further, Faster, Flerken”

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

MULTIMEDIOCRITY: The Broadcast! – Higher, Further, Faster, Flerken


On this installment of MULTIMEDIOCRITY: The Broadcast!, Doofin and Talley talk, in a spoiler-free manner, about the latest MCU entry, CAPTAIN MARVEL, discussing the film’s merits (Ben Mendelsohn), shortcomings (Matthew’s expectations), and its charming “feline” co-star, as well as the increasingly-angry army of bitter bros that tried (and failed) to make a dent in its box office.

The gents also touch on late-90s/early-2000s pop-punk and how wide a net that genre label casts, wonder if Michael Jackson will be the abuser who makes or brakes America’s willingness to separate the art from the artist, and reflect on the films and roles of John Candy, who is being remembered fondly online this month, the 25th anniversary of his death.

Are people who use Uber Eats to order ice cream sociopaths? Will Tiger Woods ever catch Jack Nicklaus’ majors record? How much empathy should you have for people who die trying to take a selfie? Is it way too early to anoint Jordan Peele as the next Hitchcock? Tune in to episode 40 for answers, sort of, to these questions and more!
