When questionable research practices meets underworld crime, a lot of people get eaten by SmartSharks™. In episode 20, we’re crossing over Deep Blue Sea, a sci-fi horror movie with deeply flawed representations of sharks, and The Maltese Falcon, a noir classic with deeply flawed representations of falcons. Check us out on iTunes, Soundcloud, and Stitcher for our conversation on how to get your start in the shark wrangler rodeo, why there’s no such thing as a guilty pleasure.
Where you can find this pop culture (as of show date):
- Deep Blue Sea is currently available to stream on HBO, and to rent/buy on platforms like Amazon or iTunes.
- The Maltese Falcon is available to rent/buy on platforms like Amazon or iTunes.
