12: Giant Bugs, John Leguizamo, & the Jewish People

Bodies change. Everyone knows that. One day you’re slim-waisted with a thick, beautiful head of hair and the next you’re a writhing, oozing insect monster. On this episode, we close our eyes and swat a newspaper at Franz Kafka’s The Metamorphosis, a squirmy story of transformation and terrible family members. We cover Kafka’s complicated relationship with Judaism, make some A+ film pitches (and some D- impressions), and are just really, unnecessarily mean to John Leguizamo.
