This week on the Talk Without Rhythm Podcast I'm continuing on with the Patreon Picks with a selection from TWoRP Legionnaire Daniel B. Daniel requested I take a look at 2007's My Name is Bruce, in which a faded celebrity from the 80s wallows in his own irrelevance before he's given the opportunity to become the kind of hero he played in the movies.

Now Hutch decided he wanted to talk about the controversial 1946 Disney film Song of the South. I figured if we were going to awkwardly discuss one Uncle Remus film we may as well go all-in by including Ralph Bakshi's 1975 no hold barred response to minstrelry and corruption - Coonskin.

One is a bonafide classic in the genre. The other is a sleazy Alien rip-off best known for a scene involving a nekkid lady and a giant maggot.
