For Your Consideration
FYC Podcast Episode 05: To Kill a Mockingbird (1962)
Released: Feb 27, 2016
"There's a lot of ugly things in this world, son. I wish I could keep 'em all away from you. That's never possible." Last week we lost Pulitzer Prize winning author, Harper Lee, who died of a stroke at the age of 89. For over 30 years she unprecedently had only one published novel to her name and it is one of my, and the literary world's, favourite books, To Kill a Mockingbird. As a tribute to Ms. Lee and her work we felt it would be a good idea to tackle the 1962 adaptation of her book on this week's show and see if we can't come to an agreement by mutual consent as to whether or not the film should be considered a classic. So, join us as Dustin and Mike take a trip to the tired old town of Maycomb, spend some quality time with the Finch's, catch up with the trial of Tom Robinson, and try to remember that it's a sin to kill a mockingbird.
