186: Uncut Gems, Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop Lab, Halsey, Georgia
This week, TV oracles Julia Raeside of The Guardian and Michael Hogan of the Telegraph join Andrew and Siân to read pop culture’s spiritual aura. Submitting to past-life analysis this week…
BLING ME THE HORIZON: Can phoner-in of broad and basic comedy roles Adam Sandler rediscover his hidden talents as an actual thesp for avant garde diamond business thriller Uncut Gems? And is this the tensest moviegoing experience around right now?
ELECTRIC YOUTH: Rave spawn Georgia’s incandescent album Seeking Thrills and US anxiety-pop heroine Halsey’s new one, Manic: what are they telling us about the Young People? And does it matter that Georgia’s dad was in Leftfield?
WHO MADE WOO?: It’s brand extension time as jade-eggs-for-female-nethers entrepreneur Gwyneth Paltrow expands into a roundly absurd and widely panned Netflix show, Goop Labs. Exploitation of simple-minded narcissists? Performance art project for our times? Hate-watch or something worse? Our panel channel the Other Side (e.g. BBC4).
Produced and presented by Andrew Harrison and Siân Pattenden. Audio production by Alex Rees. Bigmouth is a Podmasters production.
