EP. 69 — Network
Amy & Paul surf through 1976’s Sidney Lumet TV news satire Network! They explore how writer Paddy Chayefsky came up through the TV trenches, listen to modern media figures who took inspiration from Howard Beale, and ask if the film has become too real to work as satire. Plus: Orphan Black’s Tatiana Maslany talks about what it was like to reprise the Diana Christensen role onstage.
