39.0 Goon - With Aurora Browne
We get rough and tumble this week as the hilarious Aurora Browne of Baroness Von Sketch joins Becky and Cam for 2011’s viciously hilarious “Goon”. We talk the romanticizing vs. the glorification of violence, why everyone who’s in this movie deserves cookies, Kevin Smith’s own Enforcer movie ambitions, and Aurora brings some serious expertise to how to edit film for comedy. Becky has been waiting to cover this movie since the podcast started, so you can bet she goes deep into the research. Goon is currently streaming on Canadian Netflix and is available on iTunes. Give these people your money.
