The Hollywood Read ep. 27

THR LogoThis week we return to the Valley of Awful Men, as eight women come forward with allegations of all manner of abuse against Max Landis. We discuss Landis, the power that protected him, and a damaging Hollywood family legacy. And because we don’t actually want to live in the pit of despair, we also talk Toy Story 4 and it’s delightful new hero: actual garbage. This week’s episode proves that proclaiming you’re trash is only endearing if you’re an animated spork, and not an actual person capable of doing real harm.
