You will believe that black women can make a white dude fly!

Probably not the tag line they were looking for, but it’s kinda true. This is the story of the unheralded black women who were mathematicians for NASA in the 60s and who were essential to our space program. Sounds dry? Well, it’s not. You gotcher Taraji P. Henson as Katherine Johnson, yer Octavia Spencer as Dorothy Vaughn, and yer Janelle Monáe as Mary Jackson…all pretty incredible actresses having a ball of a time playing three incredible women. So yeah, we liked it. Listen to Beau, Chris, and Herman detail you further on this space voyage.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
