How do you make a racist violent white man look good? You pair him with an uptight pretentious unfriendly black man. And then you rake in the awards! Past guest Eddie Strait joins Alex and Julio to discuss the most recent Best Picture Oscar Winner, GREEN BOOK, and such conundrums as where Viggo Mortensen’s Italian accent came from, why comedians think fried chicken is funny, and how Mississippi feels about not being able to live down its racist past. It’s the unofficial finale to our Awards Arc and it gets HEATED during Real Talk!
