Please note that a person mentioned in this episode was recently exposed or condemned for wrongdoings #MeToo related or otherwise. These seasons involve so much research and coordination, we record these episodes months before posting. While normally that means we don’t know who won the most recent Oscar, in this case it means we discuss this person without the context of that information.
