E9 - I Care A Lot (2020)

Sock Jock Hero

Today we discuss our love-hate relationship with I Care A Lot, the hit dark comedy starring Rosamund Pike as a deplorable court appointed guardian who seizes the assets of elderly people for her own, only to one day target someone with the means to fight back. Indeed the film's first half is a perfect illustration of the disparate power dynamics between wheelies and their attendant programs, where "care" is too often a euphemism for "control". Throughout the episode we cover Tony's fight to wear pressure socks, the cruel conflation of diapers and resource management, our appreciation of Peter Dinklage, and dildo thievery.

Also, our apologies for the audio this week. Not really sure what happened :(
