CODA and the Blow
Ep. 235: Rumble with Michael Moore
After well more than a week to reflect on the lessons of Oscar night, in this week’s podcast I praise a rare movie authentically set in the working class that won Best Picture — and give my take on the vicious assault on Chris Rock that was followed minutes later with his assailant getting a standing ovation and an Oscar.
I also tell the story of the threat of violence I encountered backstage just moments after my Oscar speech in 2003.
