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.

It may not sound like a big thing, but Josh opted to not rewatch the original "Trainspotting" before watching the sequel.  An experiment inspired by his daughter, Josh wanted to see just how that might affect his experience and, in the case of "T2 Trainspotting," it worked brilliantly.

Kids, don't try this at home.

What if two hated political foes had to take a trip together?  Nick Hamm has directed a fictionalized account of a such a trip that did in fact happen with Martin McGuinness and Ian Paisley as the two men were taking part in peace talks about the conflict in Northern Ireland.

Hamm joins Josh today to discuss this movie, "The Journey," where it came from, and where it might lead us in the future.

Josh hates many things.  The list is both incomplete and with items too numerous to mention.  And yet, at the same time, Josh doesn't fully grasp how people can hate each other for something like race or gender or religion or sexual orientation.  He knows the hatred is there in the world, he knows it is wrong, and he simply cannot fathom why anyone would feel that way.

Can't everyone just love each other, like the couple at the center of the powerful "A United Kingdom?"

Both the 75 year-old "Bambi" and the new "Beauty and the Beast" are arriving on Blu-ray this week.  One is an utter classic and one is an update to a (newer) classic.  Does the latter work?  What does an update to the former look like?  No, it doesn't look like the "SNL" Bambi thing with The Rock, funny as that may have been.

Welcome to this week's meander.
