Episode 021 — In which Jasmine and Joy talk about pop culture and tricks, pranks, hoaxes, and other tomfoolery.

We dig in and discuss different forms of heroic trickery in movies, including the shitty but effective Trojan horse in the movie Troy (2004) which was based on Homer's Iliad as well as two documentaries about WWII that you should add to your must-see list: The Ghost Army (2013) and Garbo: The Spy (2009).
