Raging Bull (1:03:54) Rated R for raw, raging, bullish bad language.
We enter the ’80s on the T101P with the ferocious Scorsese/De Niro abusive boxer movie that’s considered one of the modern greats. We branch off into all sorts of different areas with this episode, including the oft-rough & bloody tribulations of the film’s makers. To get through this lengthy podcast, get you some Sparkplug Coffee and then dive right in!
