#BoyfriendMaterial #005 – The Big Short (2015)
Are you ready to bet against America? Ryan Gosling may not be the star of The Big Short, but he’s the glue that holds it all together, as his character pits both sides of the housing crisis against one another for tremendous personal gain. Get your Jenga sets ready because in this episode, Joey and Joe break down the housing crisis and explain why variable rate mortgages are the worst. There are also tangents a-plenty in this episode, including a discussion about A Quiet Place (maybe spoilers?), a primer about hard rock and metal, and a discussion about who Karen Gillan is.
Plus, we take a detour to the cereal aisle to talk about the best meat market in America and why generic brand foods are the best option when shopping. Lastly: why does Joe Two always seem to have Waterworld on the brain? All that — and much more, including actual talk about The Big Short and its stacked cast of 30- to 40-something white dudes — on this episode! (Plus, of course, obligatory shoutouts to Margot Robbie in a bath tub, Anthony Bourdain, and Selena Gomez.)
