In this 2-part episode, we invite actor Saoirse Ronan and have a hot topic discussion about the 2020 election.
Segment 1: Saoirse stars in the new film Ammonite opposite Kate Winslet. In 1800s England, acclaimed but unrecognized fossil hunter Mary Anning (Kate Winslet) works alone on the rugged Southern coastline. When a wealthy visitor entrusts Mary with the care of his wife Charlotte Murchison (Saoirse Ronan), she cannot afford to turn his offer down. Proud and relentlessly passionate about her work, Mary initially clashes with her unwelcome guest, but despite the distance between their social class and personalities, an intense bond begins to develop, compelling the two women to determine the true nature of their relationship.
Segment 2: The 2020 Presidential election is finally over. The BGN Podcast staff give their hot takes about this past election year as well as the controversy surrounding the results of ballot counts, missing concession speeches, and what to expect under a Biden/Harris administration.
