Episode 3: Oscarssowhat

On the third episode, I talk about our most hallowed of American-made traditions, The Academy Awards. But…it’s not exactly what you think. Less than an all-out angry rant, this is more about my disappointment concerning the lack of diversity in Hollywood and the strange notion that we should even give out awards for art. The systemic problem of the prejudice within the Academy is investigated, Spike Lee speaks his mind, Brando’s 1972 Oscar win is given the spotlight, Mac and Cheese is mentioned more than once, and above all else, this all boils down to one white podcaster’s opinion.

The idea behind THE SYMBIOTIC PODCAST is an excuse for the host and creator, Jericho Cerrona, to monologue on various topics involving film and music culture, with the eventual hope of entertaining conversations with guests. Basically, one man awkwardly speaking into a microphone in isolation talking trends, themes, and conversational talking points within the realm of film and music while occasionally playing some tunes. So, grab some boxed mac and cheese, sip that scalding Dunkin’ Donuts coffee, and prepare yourself for the auditory experience that is THE SYMBIOTIC PODCAST. Just don’t expect true crime reveals or a string of panelists with over-empathic voices.
