Operation Kino 117: Were Google and Tumblr Part of Carl Sagan’s Dream for the Universe?
This week, Katey, Dave, and David are all MIA — so it’s up to Patches to pick some topics and wrangle the Internet’s best to talk them out. First up, Patches and James Rocchi of MSN Movies profess their love for Cosmos and discuss Carl Sagan’s influence on movies. Then, Mike Ryan of Huffington Post joins the show to slam this weekend’s two hour Google commercial, The Internship. Our mini-segment piggybacks off We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks to dig into the trail of Bradley Manning. We wrap up with a look at the film talk that’s happening on Tumblr, with Chad Perman and Michelle Said of the successful blog/magazine Bright Wall Dark Room. We kick it off with a lightning round question inspired by the documentary, Dirty Wars.
