Hiya, friends!   

We're getting the next episode ready for y'all. So, in the meantime, listen to Episode #29: The Takeover, which is about an Australian teenager who tried to make the most boring Facebook group possible–a group where members pretend to be corporate drones in a non-existent office.

Listen to Episode #29: The Takeover

New Reply All Producer Emmanuel Dzotsi says: "There's this documentary series I saw late last year that I just can't stop thinking about. It's called America To Me, and it chronicles the way race plays out in the lives of students and teachers at Oak Park River Forest High School in suburban Chicago. It's absolutely sublime, and made me revisit my own high school experience in a way I hadn't before. It might be the best thing director Steve James has ever done, and the only reason you haven't heard about it is because they put it on STARZ for some reason."
Reply All Intern Christina Djossa says: "First, I gotta thank Rick Kwan for this excellent Netflix recommendation, because for a lot of people, a period-drama zombie show is a hard sell, but the Kingdom delivers on so much more. First, it's beautifully shot, at times pretty funny, and the ugly Joseon-era courtesan politics are so engrossing. I binged through the season, and now I'm sad I have to wait many months for another. So, I would recommend pacing yourself to savor the Kingdom's epic-ness."
Damiano says: "I’d like to recommend Sex Education, though it does seem like every person in the world has seen it at this point, except for me. It’s a beautifully-set, teenage, coming-of-age show. It’s truly delightful, if you want to shut your brain off after you leave work or on a Sunday, like I do. So delightful that when, later in the season, it starts to make you feel teary or brings back your own teenage rage and frustration, you won’t begrudge it too much. If you haven’t seen it yet, well you should reconsider."

Development Producer Peter Bresnan says: "My incredibly niche recommendation for the day is the filmed West End version of Billy Elliot the Musical. I generally do not like musicals, but this one is deeply sad and deeply beautiful. And, it made me cry like nothing else had ever made me cry."


Laura Morris, who is a producer for a new show in development, says: "I would like to recommend the film TransitIt’s a WWII occupation story set in contemporary Marseille, France (minus cell phones). Think a Shakespeare play, but performed in a new setting. The film is beautifully acted and also an inspiring way to think about what is and isn’t required when telling a story."
