Nathan and Scotty discuss The Big Short, from director Adam McKay. Four denizens of the world of high-finance predict the credit and housing bubble collapse of the mid-2000s, and decide to take on the big banks for their greed and lack of foresight. Tune in to hear our podcasters discuss Wall Street, the housing bubble, duping the American public, greed, the acting talents of Christian Bale and Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling’s New York accent, the director of Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy and Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, and the making of an unlikeable movie. Plus, Andydrogynous clocks in to review 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi. Nominated for Best Picture, The Big Short is Adam McKay’s first foray into Academy territory. Find out what makes him tick. This week on the Four Seasons of Film podcast!
