Episode notes

The Boys in the Boat is an inspiring story that’s sure to please audiences but leaves a lot to be desired as the story feels surface level and breezy. Not having read the biographical novel of the same name written by Daniel James Brown, my only familiarity with this story has been the number of Washington Huskies fans who ask me if I’ve seen the film and if it’s anything like the book. While I can’t quite answer definitively, I’ll say that I’m sure it captures some of the spirit, but I imagine many will be frustrated with how the film takes few risks and how massive moments don’t feel nearly as impactful as they should.
