Episode 123: "Air" and "Blackberry"
AirBerry! Corporate Mythmaking! From Fincher's The Social Network to Hulu's Cheetos movie, corporate myth-making is a hot genre, attracting both glitzy Hollywood productions and scrappy indies alike
- and tonight we sample both with Amazon's Air and Canada's Blackberry! Corporate mythologizing has become a major genre, with more and more entries every year - from Danny Boyle's Jobs, to Apple's Tetris, to Hulu's Flamin' Hot movie - based on the creation of spicy Cheetos no less. Have we slipped a peg culturally, since the days of Ghandi and Ali? Or will tonight's double feature of Air - the Air Jordan story - or Blackberry, the fall of the world's most popular handheld device, change MG's mind? AirBerry! Drink. Talk. Drink
