Just Mercy is currently free to watch on a variety of platforms. As we discuss the film, we do our best to grapple with the difficult issue of systematic racial injustice in America. Viewing dramatized versions of real events is not the same as digging into the truth of what really happens in our world, but dramas like this can be a helpful and humanizing starting point.

Dear listener: we at the Workshop Podcast feel that when we produce an episode, we are making a pact with our audience. A pact between our audience and their ears.
No! Sorry. That sounded way creepy.
We are making a pact with you, the listener, to produce the most professional, best content we possibly can. To show our renewed commitment to professionalism, we present these recent photos of us in suits.
Nothing says “professional” like a suit. And from these suit pictures, you can clearly see how professional and committed we are to you, the listener.
On today’s professional episode of The Workshop Podcast, we spend a surprising amount of time discussing sports and sports-related topics. Also featured: the shocking revelation of Eric’s (probably) real name, our city’s terrible nickname, warmed-over 90s jokes, and our plans for a dark, gritty Inspector Gadget reboot.
As part of our commitment to professionalism, I must note the following: while Eric correctly states that Matthew Broderick is in American Crime Story, I incorrectly assumed he was in the first season about O.J. Simpson. He is, however, in the second season which is about Hurricane Katrina and hasn’t been released yet. I have since watched this show and *now* I get the obsession. So we’ll probably talk about that in a future episode.
