Movie of the Year: 1973 – Robin Hood

Movie of the Year: 1973

Robin Hood

This week we discuss Robin Hood! Can it steal the gold and become our Movie of the Year?

Robin Hood is about a fox everyone wants to get with even though he hasn’t even kissed his own girlfriend. But here’s something cool about him: he shoots arrows real good and takes money from the rich to give to the poor by reusing old footage and fleshing out the runtime with a series of looping chase scenes.

With half the characters being from England and half being from the American south, Robin hood allows us to imagine a fantasy land where public domain characters move through something approximating a story, while we all hold our breath hoping this isn’t one of those super-racist old Disney movies featured in some multi-episode podcast.

In what can only be described as a series of scenes falling in more-or-less chronological order until each has played, we see Robin hood go from a guy in the forest, to a guy in an archery tournament, to a guy in a bunch of weird outfits, to a guy in a bunch of people’s fantasies.

All that, and we breath into the mic a lot!

Abortion is healthcare

While Americans overwhelmingly support the right of an individual to make their own decisions about abortion, unfortunately, that right is no longer protected everywhere in the U.S.

The Supreme Court overturned Roe versus Wade on June 24th.

Abortion is a basic healthcare need for the millions of people who can become pregnant. Everyone should have the freedom to decide what’s best for themselves and their families, including when it comes to ending a pregnancy. This decision has dire consequences for individual health and safety, and could have harsh repercussions for other landmark decisions.

Restricting access to comprehensive reproductive care, including abortion, threatens the health and independence of all Americans. Even if you live in a state where abortion rights are upheld, access to safe medical procedures shouldn’t be determined by location, and it shouldn’t be the privilege of a small few.

You can help by donating to local abortion funds. To find out where to donate for each state, visit
