Triple Take episode four: TheRinger.com’s Victor Luckerson

VictorWelcome to the fourth episode of Triple Take, the podcast where we discuss how favorite films, books and albums shape who we are. Today’s guest is Victor Luckerson, an Alabama native and writer for TheRinger.com. Victor breaks the rules a bit in this episode (probably because he’s John’s friend and John’s a bit of a softie); rather than talking about his favorite movie, Victor and John chat about “Chappelle’s Show.” We stick to the rules for the rest of the episode, though, so you’ll hear about his favorite album, Outkast’s “ATLiens,” and book, “Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” by Mark Twain. Learn more about Victor at vicluckerson.com and follow him on Twitter @vluck.
