New Podcast from Kevin McLenithan on Christ and Pop Culture: Seeing and Believing 214 | Gurinder Chadha’s Blinded by the Light and Richard Linklater’s Where’d You Go, Bernadette


The music of the Boss figures prominently in this week’s episode, as Wade and Kevin review Blinded by the Light, the latest film from the director of Bend It Like Beckham. Based on the memoir by Sarfraz Manzoor, Gurinder Chadha’s new film centers on a Pakistani teen trying to survive Margaret Thatcher’s Great Britain with the help of Bruce Springsteen’s music. Does it manage to do justice to the power of Springsteen’s music? The guys (Wade, especially) are on the case! They also take a look at Richard Linklater’s latest effort, and adaptation of Maria Semple’s bestselling novel, Where’d You Go, Bernadette.
