Flash Back Friday: RBG Directors Julie Cohen & Betsy West

Welcome to Flash Back Friday! With 400+ episodes, we're excited to revisit some of our favorites with our new listeners (and maybe new to our regular listeners).

We chose this episode because it's timely for a couple of reasons. The biggest election of our lifetime is just around the corner, and our future next president is most likely going to nominate AT LEAST one new judge to the Supreme Court. And secondly, if you've been watching the Democratic National Convention, these talented ladies directed the mini profile of Dr. Jill Biden that introduced her keynote speech on day 2. Please tell everyone you know to not only vote, but vote as early as possible! For more info on absentee voting, click here.

If you need some inspiration in your life you have GOT TO watch the documentary RBG which is about the honorable Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg (duh.) We had the pleasure of speaking with the directors Betsy West and Julie Cohen about their incredible film and unique access to Justice Ginsberg, her family, and her notable friends and colleagues. Ruth Bader Ginsberg is a national treasure and we hope that you not only appreciate her gumption and fight but that her story is one of hard work and determination. GO SUPPORT WOMEN FILMMAKERS!

At the age of 85, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has developed a breathtaking legal legacy while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon. But without a definitive Ginsburg biography, the unique personal journey of this diminutive, quiet warrior's rise to the nation's highest court has been largely unknown, even to some of her biggest fans – until now. RBG is a revelatory documentary exploring Ginsburg 's exceptional life and career from Betsy West and Julie Cohen, and co-produced by Storyville Films and CNN Films.

This week, we are joined by the directors of the brand new Ruth Bader Ginsburg documentary, RBG, Betsy West and Julie Cohen. They are on to discuss the Brian De Palma classic Carrie. Believe it or not, in this episode several similarities are drawn between the "Notorious RBG" and Carrie White. Julie and Betsy discuss what the world was like when Carrie was released and the type of workplace humiliations they had to put up with back then. Betsy even shares a story involving a penis shaped cake. They dig into the importance and power of Justice Ginsburg and how she actually changed the world. They also discuss the techniques they use to interview people, making sure not to manipulate the audience, and staring at Ruth Bader Ginsburg while she watched the documentary.

RBG opens theatrically on May 4th.
