The description of Jay Roach's Bombshell on IMDB says simply: "A group of women decide to take on Fox News head Roger Ailes and the toxic atmosphere he presided over at the network."

What a stunning understatement. Bombshell dramatizes the story of Gretchen Carlson's lawsuit against Roger Ailes' repeated harassment and the women who finally told there stories during the ensuing investigation.

Listen to our team talk about the pros and cons of the film, and whether we think it's a film of the moment (whitewashed quite a bit) or a testimonial that will live on for future generations.

Host Erroll Southers is joined by Alex Ago, Aubrey L. Hicks, and Jonathan Schwartz. While we hope listeners already know this story, this podcast is full of spoilers.
