On today's episode, we're setting the record straight with Craig Gillespie's 2017 bio dramedy, "I, Tonya", starring Margot Robbie, and Allison Janney. This film is a little miracle with its pitch-perfect performances, Rashomon story-telling, meta fourth-wall breaking, Cohen-esque comedy, ACAB-ery, and a bangin' soundtrack to boot. We manage to have a very fun conversation about a very HEAVY-hitting story, the egregious double-standards in sports crime prosecution, and what happens to a woman who is "the wrong kind of poor" in this country.
This episode references a groundbreaking piece on Tonya Harding by Sarah Marshall. Check it out.
