461 – The Greatest Night in Pop, Disney x Epic, Orion and the Dark
This week, with David out sick, Patches, Katey and Da7e get together to discuss two movies you can currently stream on Netflix: The Greatest Night in Pop about the making of “We Are The World” and Orion and the Dark, a Charlie Kaufman-written children’s movie. One is a straightforward documentary about one night in the 1980s, the other is…very interesting. Because the ending of Orion might be the most interesting part of its narrative, we delve into spoilers in Segment 3 with a Spoiler Gong. Also, in the middle, Patches and Da7e speculate why Disney just invested $1.5 billion in Epic Games Take a listen, embed and/or download below; for more from all of us on Twitter: follow the show (@FITWR), Katey (@kateyrich), Da7e (@da7e)  Patches (@misterpatches), and  David (@davidehrlich) .
