It’s not often that Radio Worldview hears from listeners describing the views of one of your hosts as “surpisingly stupid,” so when we do we know we need to talk about it. In this episode, hosts Jeff Baldwin and Bill Jack are so excited to talk about the e-mail heaping vitriol on Jeff that they hardly goof around at all — instead, they dive into a discussion of foreign films and Jeff’s sarcastic description of a fellow faculty member’s Night at the Movies. Can’t we apply the same standard to cinema as we do to literature? Why make fun of another faculty member’s efforts to improve the tastes of his audience? And what does Jeff have against movies with subtitles? Tune in for the answers!

Here’s a tip for all of our listeners who want to write in to the show: if you have a serious question, don’t include any comments about superhero movies or comic books — those distract Jeff from the issue at hand. In this episode of Radio Worldview, a listener makes the mistake of mentioning the Avengers movie, preventing Jeff and Bill from discussing whether or not rap music can actually be art until late in the show. But before any of that happens, we offer the most disgusting segment of Roadkill Cafe yet recorded.
