Back through the mists of time in the fantastical world of America in 1973, folks got all kinda beside themselves over a big media circus of a tennis match between women’s champion Billie Jean King, here played by Emma Stone, and former men’s champ Bobby Briggs, played here by Steve Carell. It turned into “WOMEN’S LIBBERS VERSUS MALE CHAUVINIST PIGS!” and despite the silliness around it, was indeed a turning point for equal rights. So now here’s the movie. Listen to Chris, Lara, Beau and Zach discuss the vagaries of tennis, equality, and the yuks.

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.
