Searching For Atticus
Ford v Ferrari
Show Notes

Matt Damon & Christian Bale star in James Mangold's rollicking tale of legendary designer Carroll Shelby & driver Ken Miles' effort to win the 24 Hours of LeMans car race in the 1960's. It's an odd feat to create a story in which the Ford Motor Co. is an underdog (up against the dominant Ferrari), but this movie pulls it off.
However, this is far more than a car movie or a sports flick. At its heart is a story of friendship between two renegades - one of whom (Miles) is more of an outcast!
Rich, Blake and Kofi talk about the awkwardness of realistic fistfights, the codes that men develop in order to communicate their feelings and the love that is given to those who are passionate - but difficult.
