Upstream podcast discusses A Quiet Place

Paramount Pictures/YouTube Bruno Moraes/The Daily Dot (Fair Use) Remix by Jason Reed

This week we discuss the plot holes and crunchy memes of A Quiet Place—John Krasinski’s film about a terrifying near-future where sound attracts monsters and you can’t eat chips—and whether its box-office success is the result of an Office bump or a desire for more original horror films. (Or the challenge of the viewing experience.)

Plus, we unpack Cardi B’s Invasion of Privacy and The Simpsons‘ baffling response to the conversation around Apu. And we’ve got some streaming recommendations for you.
