on the latest hotbox, we tear the crust off our tuna sandwiches, fire up the nitro, and get into the gears of our glorious return to multiplex cinema: the one and only F9. yall know your hosts ride for this series like few others, so we go under the hood and look at how it's changed over 20 years and absorbed trends in blockbuster cinema, how people misunderstand vin diesel as an actor, john cena's heel turn, & the franchise's essential tension between analog mechanics and digital technology.
in a quite literal opening Unboxing section, we talk about downsizing our physical media collections, the plague of rick and morty-themed glassware, and how haunting is the original pilling.
LISTENER PROMPT: slide into our DMs, hit or line, or send a smoke signal and tell us... if you could see any wrestler or rapper in a future fast & furious movie, who would it be?
super-fast and especially furious new mix from nadine around 1 hr 26
