18. The Nobility of Failure. [Angelo Muredda.]

Angelo Muredda is a Toronto-based teacher and film critic who has written for outlets like Cinema Scope, The Walrus, Film Freak Central, and Now Magazine. He is completing his PhD in English at the University of Toronto. You can find him on Twitter, listen to his Star Trek podcast Highly Logical (co-hosted with Nicole Partyka), and catch his screening series No Future at The Royal Cinema.

Angelo and Michael talk about radical kindness, sad weird kids, impermanence, life in the shadow of sudden trauma, and the comforting thought that the place you’re in is the place you’re meant to be.
