S1E6: Jaws Part 1

This week, just when you thought it was safe to go back into the water, we talk about Jaws!

Come for a lengthy discussion of the book, stay for the tangential discussions that lead to the film itself, the state of modern big-budget genre filmmaking, and eventually some very focused discussion of the film itself.

And be sure to stay tuned for Part 2 of this episode, coming later this week!

Special thanks to Drew DeVore, our fearless Sound Engineer
