Greetings programs! It’s time for a new episode of the Awesome Friday Podcast! This week we’re looking at a pair of sports movies: Hustle, the love letter to basketball from Adam Sandler, and The Phantom of the Open, the true story of the man who shot the worst round of golf in British Open History, starring Mark Rylance.
This week Simon had some commitments that couldn’t be avoided, but luckily our friend Rachel Ho was able to join me in his place. Rachel is an award-winning critic based out of Toronto; she co-hosts the podcast Contra Zoom and writes for Exclaim, POV Magazine, and That Shelf. This episode was a blast to record, and we hope you enjoy it!
