Welcome to Episode 180. This one was recorded a couple of days ago. But due to Omicron knocking out Dan's whole department at work (except Dan), he's been very busy this week. It's also why we have a shorter show for you this week. But don't fret, you get all of our regular absurdity in this compact episode. Here's what we're talking about before getting to our review: Steve ruins an announcement by just being Steve Taco Bell v Del Taco, Burgers, and Arby's Blue Cheese is the devil We know this much is true RIP to Meat Loaf and Louie Anderson Random music chat We then get into the review and this week we're talking about Ridley Scott's "The Last Duel" which premiered in theaters last year and just dropped on HBO Max. This movie stars Matt Damon, Adam Driver, Jodie Comer, and Ben Affleck.  That's the show in a nutshell. We'll be back soon with the Noisey Awards 3 where we give praise to our favorite things from 2021 (believe it or not, we actually found some things). Until then, stay out of trouble and keep your noses clean. We'll talk to you soon. Peace!

You can find plenty of articles online about Amanda Knox and her Italian court case, some from more reputable publications than others. Amanda was convicted twice and cleared twice of murdering her roommate, Meredith Kercher, while the two were studying abroad in the Italian city of Perugia. She spent four years incarcerated in Italy before her name was finally cleared. Our interview picks up, for the most part, after that exoneration and it's about how to manage one's mental health after going through all that. We hear about some disastrous therapy sessions, a Matt Damon movie that co-opted her trauma, and her struggle to imagine how she'll tell her newborn daughter about all this some day.Listen to Labyrinths: Getting Lost with Amanda Knox on the podcatcher of your choice.

Hey film buds, We're continuing this week to review as many of the movies of 2021 that we missed last year. Of which, there are many. For this episode we're looking at how two very different, but very distinct, directors handle history. Our first film this week is Ridley Scott's The Last Duel, written by Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, and Nicole Holofcener. The movie is a gritty tale about male ego, pride, ownership, perception, and the consequences of action. Ridley is a meticulous director, and this film is no exception. Second, we're looking at Paul Verhoeven's Benedetta. Verhoeven is known for his dramatic, intense, and sometimes unsubtle satirist most known for his modern and sci-fi features. With Benedetta, he takes the story of a real life nun and uses it for inspiration for a slightly different take on history. Joining us for the conversation is friend of the show, Madelaine, who was incredibly insightful and a joy to have back on. Be sure to also check out our episodes on Showgirls and Tampopo.

Non-fungible tokens, or NFTs, are taking over the world... If you're not familiar with NFTs, you're not alone… An NFT is a digital asset that represents real-world objects like art, music, or real estate. They are unique and are bought and sold online, frequently with cryptocurrencies. And NFTs are the next frontier in the digital revolution...  Joining Trish this week on the podcast is an expert in this arena, Eddie Ibanez. Eddie, a technology entrepreneur and pioneer in computer tech and data patterns, talks with Trish about this exciting and emerging new industry. Some have even compared mathematician Eddie with Matt Damon's genius character in the smash-hit movie Good Will Hunting. Eddie recently teamed up with famous YouTuber and NFT junkie Logan Paul to create CryptoZoo, a digital zoo where users can breed, collect, and trade exotic hybrid animals as NFTs. These digital oddities may sound bizarre, but there's big money to be made... NFTs can sell for wild sums of money – millions of dollars. Listen to this week's episode for a better understanding of the technology that is our future...

Kathleen opens the show drinking a Missouri Mule IPA from Piney River Brewing Company in Bucyrus, MO. She explains the background as to how her feral cats Mencho, Chapo, and Cato came to live under her back porch. She named the kittens after Mexican drug lords since they were found as kittens tunneled under her air conditioning unit. “GOOD BAD FOOD”: In her quest for new and delicious not-so-nutritious junk food AND in continuing her search for the best Ranch, Kathleen samples Whisps Tangy Ranch Cheese Crisps & Nuts, which she doesn't think tastes anything like Ranch flavoring. She moves on to taste Kraft Sandwich Spread, which she doesn't like and thinks that the pickle and tang in the spread is overpowering to any sandwich. Kathleen recommends mixing half Duke's Mayonnaise and half Miracle Whip when making deviled eggs or her holiday Midwest Rye Dip, which she will demonstrate to the Termites how to make for their Super Bowl parties. UPDATES: Kathleen gives updates on the Capitol riot Q Shaman and Elizabeth Holmes' guilty verdict.MOCKING MATT DAMON: As Termites know, Kathleen is a rabid fan of cryptocurrency. She joins the online mocking of the latest crypto commercial featuring Matt Damon as he strolls down a minimalist hallway as visions of some of the world's greatest achievements appear on each side, and he compares feats such as climbing Everest with trading cryptocurrency. DON'T LOOK UP: Kathleen reviews the movie “Don't Look Up,” which she thought was fine but heavy-handed and not something that she would watch again. Apparently, others felt this way, as it is the first film to spoil Leonardo DiCaprio's “Fresh” record on Rotten Tomatoes. TACO BELL'S NEW PASS: Kathleen is THRILLED that her beloved Taco Bell has started a “Taco Pass” program for $10 a month, where lovers of The Bell can buy a pass on their mobile app to get 30 days of tacos at participating locations across the country.POPE FRANCIS ANIMALS VS KIDS: Kathleen muses over Pope “Frank's” latest decree that couples opting to raise pets over children is selfish and “takes away our humanity.” Kathleen responded on Twitter that maybe the Pope has just never had a beagle ;-)BETTY WHITE CHALLENGE: Kathleen is a huge fan of Betty White and her animal-related projects, and although she is sad to hear the news of Betty's passing, she is happy to promote a new initiative in honor of Betty. White's 100th birthday will be celebrated posthumously on January 17th with the Betty White Challenge, asking fans wishing to celebrate her life's work to donate $5 to animal rescues in her name. KFC'S NEW FRIED CHICKEN: Kathleen advises listeners that Kentucky Fried Chicken is launching a new plant-based chicken made with Beyond Meat, making it the first “meatless” fried chicken brought to mass market. TROY AIKMAN'S NEW BEER: Kathleen laughs reading a release announcing that former Dallas Cowboy Troy Aikman is releasing his new “Eight” beer to compete with low-calorie giants Michelob Ultra and Miller Lite. WILD BOAR CHARGES SURFER: Kathleen squeals reading an article outlining the unfortunate circumstances surrounding a surfer in Oahu who was charged in the water by a wild boar on the Northwest shore of the island. The surfer mistook the boar for a monk seal and fled the water as the aggression of the hog intensified. ABRAHAM LINCOLN'S FEMALE CAPTAIN: Kathleen is excited to read that a Navy sailor made history in December by becoming the first woman to lead a nuclear carrier on deployment. Captain Amy Bauernschmidt is the commanding officer of the USS Abraham Lincoln, and has also been awarded the title of “Determined Termite” by Kathleen.WHAT TO WATCH THIS WEEK: Kathleen recommends watching “1883,” and if you like the wild West theme move onto 5 seasons of “Hell On Wheels” if you're a streaming junkie like she is.

Every once in a while I have a conversation on this show that blows my mind, this episode did just that. Today on the show we have Oscar® Nominated producer Chris Moore. He produced films like Good Will Hunting, American Pie, Waiting, The Adjustment Bureau, and Manchester by the Sea. Chris' profile grew from his appearance as the producer on the early 2000's filmmaker reality show Project: Greenlight.I have a short, and I mean short, history with Project: Greenlight but that's another story. After graduating from college, Chris Moore moved to Los Angeles after sometime working in the mailroom of a major agency he got promoted to literary agent. He championed projects like: The Stoned Age, PCU, Airheads, Last Action Hero, and My Girl. When Chris' agency was acquired by ICM, he left and became an indie film producer. With some friends, he raised the budget to produce the indie film Glory Daze, which starred an unknown Matt Damon. Damon turned down the leading role in favor of paid work on another paid project but introduced him to his friend Ben Affleck, who ultimately starred in Glory Daze.Afterward, Affleck and Damon wrote the screenplay for what would become the Oscar® winning Good Will Hunting, and they asked Chris help them produce the film that was directed by Gus Van Sant.Will Hunting (Matt Damon) is twenty years old, and already stands out in his rough, working-class neighborhood in South Boston. He's never been to college, except to scrub floors as a janitor at MIT. Yet he can summon obscure historical references from a photographic memory, and almost instantly solve math problems that frustrate Nobel Prize winning professors. The one thing this remarkably bright, impossibly angry young man can't do - after his latest bar fight - is talk his way out of a pending jail sentence.His only hope is Sean McGuire (Robin Williams), a college professor-turned-therapist with an admiration for Will's emotional struggles, and a keen understanding of what it's like to fight your way through life.Chris and I had a remarkable conversation about how to produce films in today eco-system. We also discuss what it's like working in the studio system, some of the issues he has with the system, how filmmakers are treated, and so much more. This an EPIC 2-hour conversation full of knowledge and truth bombs so prepare to take some notes.Enjoy my conversation with Chris Moore.

I'm so jazzed to share this episode because I'm talking with a wicked old friend of mine; Walter Norton Jr - owner of the Institute of Performance & Fitness (IPF) which is a 10,000 sq. ft., state-of-the-art facility in North Reading, MA. I've known Walt for over 30 years having met back in college at Boston University. He's someone who I admire and respect, and one of the people in my life who inspires me to be better. Walter has been a leader in the fitness industry for over 25 years and can stake a claim to having trained the most athletes in New England over the past few decades. He essentially started the youth training industry 20+ years ago as co-founder and owner of Mike Boyle's Strength & Conditioning (MBSC) - which became the largest and most well-known training facility in the U.S. In 2008, Walter left MBSC and he opened the Institute of Performance & Fitness (IPF) bringing his structured, consistent, straightforward, and high-octane coaching style to the middle school, high school, college and adult athletes and clients who train at IPF on a daily basis. He's also worked with multiple professional sports teams including the Boston Celtics 2004-2008, including their 2008 Championship year, the Boston Bruins, the New England Revolution, and the Boston Breakers. He's also trained the Boston University Men's Ice Hockey Team and the Harvard University Women's Ice Hockey Team. Walter has coached over 40 Olympic medalists across the 1998, 2002, 2006, 2010, and 2014 Games, has been a consultant for Nike, and he's worked with a bunch of celebrities from movies, television, music, and media including: 10 different movies with Ben Affleck, Jen Garner, Ryan Seacrest, Ciara, Casey Affleck and Matt Damon. Today on the Karen Kenney show, we're taking an up close and personal look at who Walter is and the incredible work he's doing to help people improve their lives. When you ask Walt what he does, he'll say, “I'm a coach, I work at a gym, we change behavior.” As you'll soon see and hear he's so much more than just a physical coach. He helps people grow personally, professionally, emotionally, mentally and I would add, in his own unique way, spiritually too. Once you listen to this conversation, you're going to see what I'm talking about. Walter is an incredible human being and extra bonus, you're also going to learn all about his amazing wife Liz Keady Norton, who is the Head Coach at Dartmouth Women's Hockey. Buckle up!! This conversation is filled with laughter, inspiration and even a few tears. KK's Key Takeaways: • Everything Is Great On Paper (3:46) • What Did I Do?

Today on the show we have Oscars® winning costume designer Janty Yates.Janty Yates has had a collaborative relationship with Ridley Scott since the great success of Gladiator in 2000, for which she won an Academy Award®, one of the eight Oscars® garnered by the film.She was also nominated for a BAFTA, a Golden Satellite and a Saturn Award. She has also had CDG nominations for De-lovely and for The Martian, a Golden Satellite nomination for De-lovely and a Goya nomination for Kingdom of Heaven.Yates is a frequent collaborator with Scott, having worked on thirteen films with him in addition to Gladiator, including: Hannibal (2001); Kingdom of Heaven (2005); American Gangster (2007); Body of Lies (2008); Robin Hood (2010), for which she received a Saturn Award nomination and her fourth Satellite Award nomination; Prometheus (2012), Exodus: Gods and Kings (2014),  and The Martian (2015). Her most recent films with Scott include the epic historical drama film The Last Duel and the biographical crime drama film House of Gucci, both released in 2021.The historical epic is a cinematic and thought-provoking drama set in the midst of the Hundred Years War that explores the ubiquitous power of men, the frailty of justice and the strength and courage of one woman willing to stand alone in the service of truth. Based on actual events, the film unravels long-held assumptions about France's last sanctioned duel between Jean de Carrouges and Jacques Le Gris, two friends turned bitter rivals.Carrouges is a respected knight known for his bravery and skill on the battlefield. Le Gris is a Norman squire whose intelligence and eloquence make him one of the most admired nobles in court. When Carrouges' wife, Marguerite, is viciously assaulted by Le Gris, a charge he denies, she refuses to stay silent, stepping forward to accuse her attacker, an act of bravery and defiance that puts her life in jeopardy.The ensuing trial by combat, a grueling duel to the death, places the fate of all three in God's hands. The film is based on Eric Jager's book "The Last Duel: A True Story of Crime, Scandal, and Trial by Combat in Medieval France."It is produced and directed by Ridley Scott, Kevin J. Walsh ("Manchester by the Sea"), Jennifer Fox ("Nightcrawler"), Nicole Holofcener, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck with Kevin Halloran ("Ford v Ferrari"), Drew Vinton ("Promised Land"), Madison Ainley ("Justice League") serving as executive producers.You can watch The Last Duel through popular video-on-demand (VOD) retailers like Amazon Prime Video, Vudu, Apple TV (iTunes), Microsoft Movies, and YouTube.Enjoy my conversation with Janty Yates.

We are taking a break from holiday horror (and something of a break from the show's normal material) to talk about two movies that have some similarities while being drastically different. We start in the Golden Age of exploitation cinema with a kung fu movie that typifies what people probably think about - for better and worse. We also look at one of the most underrated movies of 2021.We waste not time getting into 1980's 36 Deadly Styles. The best way to describe the film is in the simplest ways possible. Even then, it would probably still be wrong. We discuss whether a kung fu movie can have too many fight scenes, some great hair, and the Wu-Tang Clan. We also try to figure out what the movie is about and whether it even matters.Ridley Scott is one of the most celebrated directors in cinema. He has an impressive resume that includes some of the most iconic movies of all time. We review what may end up being one of his most overlooked works of his career. The Last Duel deals with topical issues in a medieval story. We go over the Roshomon-style of storytelling, debate how well the message was delivered, and marvel over the fight scenes.

For data visualization, please use the links below or follow us on Twitter @DegenerateBiz-----------------------------------------------------After a fit of liquidation sent Bitcoin below near term support ($53k), sentiment now hangs by a knife's edge around ~$47k. Despite the world's most riveting Matt Damon commercial for Crypto.com, the Crypto markets chop into consolidation (for now). While the HODLers buy the dip, December wears on to tell us which way the price action will break. Meanwhile, Ethereum flashes a key signal that it will outperform no matter where Crypto sentiment goes in the near term. Degenerate Champion of the week Raj Rajaratnam, prominent insider trader and hedge fund extraordinaire, appears on Bloomberg. Claiming he was the victim of prosecutorial overreach, he then proceeds to pump his largest holding Crowdstrike. Fantastic work.We then pivot the macro sphere, where a debate rages on about the consequences of fiscal and monetary interventions. Aggregate demand is so stupendously overpumped, supply chains so epically snarled, workforce participation so indelibly low that the Fed might be turning hawkish-ish. And if that means impending rate hikes in 2022, an accelerated pace of tapering and whatever else, is that really priced into the markets writ large?

It's been more than 20 years since Ben Affleck and Matt Damon wrote their Oscar-winning screenplay Good Will Hunting, but that changes with Ridley Scott's bloody epic The Last Duel. Co-written by Oscar nominee Nicole Holofcener, the film features performances by Damon, Affleck, Adam Driver and Jodie Comer. Together, they play out a tale of anger, vengeance and the fine points of 14th century property ownership.
