Originally Aired: 09/29/17 We review American Made. We talk with Kelly McCormack of Killjoys and we also talk with Chris Cheung of MetaOlympia.com
We talk with actor/producer/writer Kelly McCormack. Fans of Killjoys will recognize her as new “nerd” recruit Zeph. But Killjoys isn’t the only thing she’s been working on this year as she produced and starred in The Neddeaus of Duqesne Island for CBC Comedy. She’ll be on to tell us all about her various projects in the world of entertainment. For more info on Kelly McCormack, you can check out her website.
Our review of American Made starring Tom Cruise, Domhnall Gleeson & Sarah Wright. Synopsis: Barry Seal, a TWA pilot, is recruited by the CIA to provide reconnaissance on the burgeoning communist threat in Central America and soon finds himself in charge of one of the biggest covert CIA operations in the history of the United States. The operation spawns the birth of the Medellin cartel and almost brings down the Reagan White House.
We also talk with Chris Cheung who launched Meta Olympia this past summer. Meta Olympia is “a glorious mash-up of sports news, science fiction, art and technology.” Through old school sports reporting, the world of Meta Olympia is revealed. We learn not just about the players, but also the living conditions of the future colonies of Mars. Chris will tell us more about this new framework for sci-fi storytelling.
It was a great show!
