#25 Netflix’s Counterpunch Director Jay Bulger on Boxing to Overcome Circumstances

July 24, 2017

Big moments from this episode: 

  • Even people who make movies and TV for Netflix aren't really sure what success looks like in the Netflix age. 
  • How boxer Lil B Hop went from living in one of the worst neighborhoods in America to acting in a movie with Alec Baldwin.
  • Why skateboarding in Iran matters to US international relations. 

This one gets a bit heavy on boxing talk if you didn't grow up watching the sport, but the human story here, of disadvantaged kids who learn to overcome their circumstances through "the sweet science" is just undeniable.
