RiaW #274: Angels In America


It’s the 80s and the middle of the AIDS epidemic and there’s a lot to be sad about. There’s also a lot to be happy about because there are amazing clever people wandering around New York being delightful. HBO captured all of that nuance in its award-winning miniseries Angels In America.

Sometimes it’s hard to talk about a topic we all enjoyed, but we have no trouble here including our new segment called Pizza Segment and a very special Lightning Debate. Thanks Sean for sponsoring and trying to persuade us about magical realism and fast talking!

    Yeah, there was a hiccup with our host. Redownload it and the whole thing should be there.
