Show Notes

George Clooney and Brad Pitt head up a band of lovable rogues in Steven Soderburgh's master class in "cool." 
Blake, Kofi & Rich talk about what makes this movie so rewatchable, why law-abiding citizens such as us love a good heist movie and why George Clooney is such an icon of modern manhood. 
Rich also shares a bunch of trivia and inside info surrounding the film. After all, he's seen it more than a hundred times. 
And Blake looks into whether the "pinch" portrayed in the movie would really set off the temporary blackout the gang needs to pull off the heist. For a more detailed answer on that, check out this article from American Physical Society:
