"The vibes have been atrocious the last couple of years," R. Eric Thomas tells Darnelle in their latest BSR podcast conversation. Boy, do we hear that. They get into the worst opinions you have ever heard about the Great Oscars Slap of 2022, why the heartfelt statements we make about the media or war are really all about us, and how it'd feel if theater became like the 24-hour news cycle. They ask what a standing ovation is meant to do, and what it's doing now. And Darnelle shares why Backing Track has him thinking about Lorraine Hansberry.
