Lee and Daniel are still locked up in 1932, but after watching "I Am a Fugitive from a Chain Gang", they are planning their daring escape to 1933. Much of the conversation revolves around the true events that led to the book that this film is based upon, and how a post WW1 America has helped shape the oppressive and inhumane conditions in Southern chain gangs and prison in general. Further conversation touches on pre-code fun; proto-noir; and Lee talks about what he's watched as of late. Come break some rocks in the hot sun with the hosts.
