This week we speak to producer William Horberg about The Queen’s Gambit, one of the most watched Netflix productions of the year. We talk to William about how the show came to be, compliments and critiques of the show, the show’s anti-cold war politics, and why it has been such a success.
We also have Choice Words about the NFL’s handling of coronavirus and the curious case of an NFL game that was played on a Wednesday afternoon. In addition, we have Just Stand Up and Just Sit Down awards to the new Houston Rocket John Wall who will always be remembered as a Washington Wizard, and Wizard General Manager Tommy Sheppard who mishandled the Wall trade. All this and more on this week’s show!
