Monster & Wine: Episode 78 - Big Purple Trans Am

That title serves as some clever wordplay and alludes to a fallen icon, which is the topic that kicks off this weeks episode. Wine is taking the loss of Prince significantly harder than Monster and explains what he meant to her and the world. This leads to talk of the word "celebrity," what it means in this day and age, whether or not this generation is cultivating any icons of its own and if social media has changed everything. Monster gives a movie review for, "Pee-Wee's Big Holiday," a character that was a bit of an icon for a young Monster back in the day. Harriet Tubman on the $20 dollar bill is a talking point that has Wine a bit heated, understandably so. Talk of the Washington Wizards coaching staff and wacky news wrap it up all into a big juicy bite.
