Flushing is Burning, Episode 30: More Movie Chat

Not a lot of big news this week, so we turn to the silver screen.

After a holiday week break, Grace is back with some news to talk about. She gets into the major news around the league, a few free agent signings and some postings from Japan, plus a bit on Shohei Ohtani. She also discusses the minor amounts of Mets news from the past couple of weeks, but nothing too exciting.

Then, she does her promised A League of Their Own chat (the movie, not the show). She has a free form talk about one of her favorite films, discussing the cast, the direction, the script, and the costuming. She also talks about the duality of the movie and show, and Penny Marshall’s importance in film history.

Finally, she talks about the recent Scream VII news that’s been all over the place, and talks about the Hollywood Blacklist of the 1950s. And finally, she does a double movie minute (to make up for being off last week), one to close out Noirvember and one to kickstart the holiday season.
