City of God – The Whatnauts Podcast 67

On this episode we discuss the Brazillian film, City of God, by Fernando Meirelles. It depicts the rise of organized crime in the suburbs of Rio de Janeiro. Set between the 1960’s and 1980’s the daily lives of the people in the Favelas are often infused with poverty and drugs. A local drug dealer, Li’l Zé, is rising to power, but finds himself at odds with vigilante-turned-criminal, Knockout Ned.

The Whatnauts Podcast was the original podcast that we launched here at The Whatnauts. It was a weekly book club style show covering everything from comics to television shows, movies, anime, and more. Today, The Whatnauts Podcast is now known as The Review Show. We rebooted it, rebranded it, and gave it a nice little spit shine to make it sparkle.
