Triple Take 27: 2016 in review

The end of a year prompts personal reflection and cultural best-of lists, and Triple Take is no exception.

On each episode of the podcast, my cohosts John Hammontree, Matt Scalici and I explore how movies, music and literature affect our lives. Naturally, we had to wrap 2016 by reflecting on the new media that affected us this year.
