One of us saw Barbenheimer and one of us didn’t. Wouldn’t you know it, that doesn’t stop the take machine from churning here on the new and improved ART AND LABOR 2. That’s right! We have emerged from our chrysalis to influence hearts and minds on a plane of evolution that was higher than before. We have the same hosts, same wandering conversation, and same opening song, but at heart, we have become the sequel to ourselves. Join us as we discuss the international responses to our darling summer blockbusters, with a little historical reference sprinkled in for nutritional value.

Episode 8 - Sorry to Bother You


We saw Sorry to Bother You and it was THE BEST MOVIE and THE ONLY MOVIE! We celebrate Chairman Boots Riley’s new masterpiece. We try to process the race and gender roles depicted in the film, but we’re way more excited to do a working class analysis. We’re now offering bonus materials on our Drip page! Feel free to skip the first 15 minutes of this ep that is just an ad for it. If you like us please consider donating for bonus writing, memes, and art: https://d.rip/art-and-labor
