Ep. 382: Michael (1996)


Every time a podcast plays, an angel gets its wings. We don't know if that's true or not, but by golly we're going to hope so. This week, things get heavenly as we explore the 1996 Nora Ephron hit, Michael starring John Travolta. When a tabloid journalist and his associates get wind of a living, breathing angel in Iowa, they set out to investigate. But what they discover is more surreal than they could have imagined. We're talking all about narrative constructs and tropes, the use of angels, secular theology, and much more as Michael arrives on the analysis table. So, join us as we discuss the 1996 holiday hit!
