Lass is More with Josh Lasser

Focusing on the media, "Lass is More" sits down with the individuals who make the movies and shows that people are, or will be, talking about. The things we watch are not created in a vacuum, but rather as responses to far larger thoughts and issues. From why someone took a role to what it means to them to where they’re going next, we put the pieces of the puzzle together. The "Lass is More" podcast gets to the core of the issue, offering perspective on both the people involved in a project, and the project itself.

Jamal Joseph has done many things with his life from activism to teaching to filmmaking, and his latest movie, "Chapter & Verse" is about to hit theaters.  Joseph, the director and co-writer of the movie, stops by the podcast this week to talk to us about how his documentary background helped influence this film and how it might be received differently today, in our post-Presidential election world, from when he initially filmed it.

Last Friday, January 20th, "Queen of Katwe" provided Josh with some much needed solace in this country that seems increasingly like an anti-underdog story.

The latest installment in the "Death Race" franchise, "Death Race 2050" is out on Blu-ray this week and we're taking a look at what it means to be that sort of a purposefully silly, intentionally over-the-top, movie.  Is it sometimes used as a cover for mistakes, is it used to get a message in, or is it just all pretend?
