Ep. 139 – Directors We Salute: Quentin Tarantino

quentin-tarantino-final

On this week’s episode, the guys debut a new show theme “Directors We Salute”, honoring Quentin Tarantino.  From the Reservoir Dogs to Inglorious Bastards to Pulp Fiction, the guys dive in to all there is to love about the director.  Tarantino has a unique style and vision, and it is seen with each piece of work.  The dialog and the storytelling are what sets this director apart…and with great pleasure, Will and Ryan salute the very entertaining Quentin Tarantino.

To open the show, Will dives into a story about starting a business and the wave of scams that followed.  He recently received an email and has serious question to the validity of the sender.  This leads down a path of discussion around how million dollar robbery is no longer taking place at the bank, but taking place in the digital world.
