Toxic Fandom, Tarantino's Mother Issues, and We Play 'Good Deal/Bad Deal'

Make sure you listen to the whole episode for a new segment that we’re debuting at the end.

In this episode, we talk about...

  • How toxic fandom has become incredibly common on the internet.
  • Director Alan Taylor losing the will to direct due to the toxic fandom he has to deal with.
  • Why it's good that more big-name people call out online harassment and cyber-bullying.
  • The ways that what people say online can be taken very personally and affect creators’ mental health.
  • How Quentin Tarantino is still carrying anger toward his mother about a comment she made early in his career.
  • Whether or not Tarantino’s viral comments should be surprising.
  • The role of cults of personality in the film industry.
  • Advances in 3D modeling, including phone apps you can use to scan 3D objects using LiDAR sensors.
  • Introducing a new segment designed just for the gig economy—Good Deal/Bad Deal.
  • Ideas for how to make a bad deal better (it’s not what you think) and examples of times you might want to take a bad deal.

Concerning Tarantino's relationships you guys need to read "rebels on the backlot" it's got quite a few interviews with Tarantino, his mum and friends. It's quite eye opening but ultimately doesn't change how one views his art, or shouldn't.
