Episode Info:

In this episode, we talk about Keanu Reeves’ venture into sports comedies between Matrix movies, including The Replacements (2000) and Hardball (2001). Both movies are loosely based on true events, establishing characters that are both dynamic and cliché. We talk about how Keanu talks back to the sports comedy genre, the use of specific songs in both films, and his ever present reluctant hero, which manifests in a complicated representation of the White Savior.

This episode is dedicated to the memory of Lorraine Branham, Dean of the Newhouse School at Syracuse University who passed on April 2. She was a wonderful captain who led our team over the past decade through some very trying times for the media industry.

It’s been an honor sharing the field of battle with you.
