Episode 43: A Deep Dive Into Beyoncé’s Transformative Documentary “Homecoming”

In Episode 43, we talk about a truly impressive (and ongoing) streak happening on Jeopardy ($1.2 million and counting for contestant James Holzhauer), People magazine naming Jennifer Garner as its cover star for its “Beautiful People” issue, the casting of Rami Malek as the next Bond villain and our predictions for how much Avengers: Endgame will make in its opening weekend.

In the Marquee Topic, we do a deep dive into the Beyoncé Netflix documentary Homecoming. We talk about how we liked but didn’t love the film itself (a mix of a concert film and a cinema verite documentary) but really felt strongly about the importance of its message, discuss the two major themes presented in the film (representation for minorities and motherhood/womanhood) and heap our praise onto Queen Bey.

PLUS, in our teasers, Maureen recommends a different Netflix documentary and Josh recommends a Netflix original show that will help you stay up to speed on politics and happenings around the world.
