Sometimes the stars align – this week, it’s the Kyrie Irving trade happening as Randy and Sean sat down to record this week’s episode. After digging into the details of the transaction and its impact on the league, they turn to this week’s topic, the art of the recommendation. What makes a good recommendation, and how should you ask and receive them? As you can imagine, they’ve spent way too much time thinking about these things – particularly in the contexts of television and silent film – so there’s a lot to discuss!
“Art” discussed: the NBA trade deadline, Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans, German expressionism, the magic of the sitcom (and the network procedural)
