225. Misleading Marketing (with Emily Benita)
After a week away, Ed and Emily are back and, inspired by the debut of the trailer for Adam McKay's Vice, they discuss the times when the marketing for a movie promises one thing ("This movie is a light romp!") yet delivers something very different ("This movie is a complex depiction of marriage!") and the fine line that exists between misdirecting audiences so as to maintain a sense of surprise, and outright lying in order to sell tickets. They also discuss the one-year anniversary of the New York Times' Harvey Weinstein expose, as well as #MeToo in the context of Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court.
