    Lauren and Nicole take a wild ride in the sky covering Scorsese’s The Aviator (2004) with a very special guest: film critic, author, and podcast host Amy Nicholson (Unspooled)! After all independently coming to the realization that this is neither a war epic nor an Amelia Earhart biopic, the group assembles to discuss Leonardo DiCaprio’s portrayal of nepo-baby Howard Hughes, the theatrical debut of Gwen Stefani, and the clever invention of the bathroom stall.

Marty Scorsese’s Odyssey

Y’all got the perfect guest for “Killers of the Flower Moon.” I read the book and saw the movie (which I had problems with), but there was still a lot more to learn. Well done!

Great Show, But

ACTUALLY it would be nice IF the ladies didn’t talk under the male guests when they are explaining how things REALLY work.

bbFAN28 ,

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The best way to learn enough about Martin Scorsese to not be embarrassed at a dinner party but also not have to watch them.
