    [PODCAST] #371: Thaddeus Russell – Renegade Themes and Missed Opportunities In Straight Outta Compton

    Podcast: Play in new window | DownloadThaddeus Russell is back to discuss the recent N.W.A biopic, Straight Outta Compton. When I first read Thad's book, A Renegade History of the United States, I couldn't stop thinking about N.W.A, and when I finally saw Straight Outta Compton I immediately thought of Thaddeus Russell.

"Heroification" is subtraction of peoples' flaws from their story. However, the identification of someone as a "renegade" doesn't require that. Our discussion centers around two central topics: Missed Opportunities - Examination of ...
