Griffin and David discuss dystopian action satire, 1987’s RoboCop. But is old Detroit a cancer and the cancer is crime? Was this film a deconstruction of the American hero mythology? Is it true that Verhoeven initially read half a page of the script and threw in the trash only to have his wife retrieve it and encourage him to give it a second chance? Together they examine the construction and evolution of the RoboCop costume, breaking squib records, 1987’s Academy award winners and many other tangents. Plus, special segment ‘Lewis View is’ with comedian and improvisor Molly Gaebe. This episode is sponsored by ZipRecruiter and Sci-Fi.com’s Cerberus Rex.
