What a surprise to see a piece of history that has never been brought to the forefront. "Hidden Figures" is an enjoyable, feel-good film, but does it provide the tribute the filmmakers intended? Listen as Rob and John talk about the White Savior Trope and white privledge in an episode that is topical and timely.​ Boy, do we have a lot of work to do.
