What a Creep; Roy Cohn (Season 4, Episode 9)

What a Creep

Roy Cohn

Season 4, Episode 9

Roy Cohn is one of the most influential lawyers to have ever practiced in the United States. Linked closely with McCarthyism and never accepting responsibility for its defeat– Cohn was a self-described patriot who felt the ends justified the means.

He was the professional mentor of current our President and his pugnacious attitude and complete lack of a moral compass during the 50s-80s predicated the world we live in now.

  • He was a self-hating Jew who attacked Jews.
  • A gay man who prosecuted homosexuals
  • A lawyer who broke the law frequently and ripped off his clients

 So, let’s learn about him now!

Book Vs Movie “The Exorcist” (RIP Max von Sydow 1929-2020)

Book Vs Movie Podcast (Replay)

The Exorcist”

RIP Max von Sydow (1929-2020)


The Margos revisit the 1971 novel The Exorcist written by the very interesting William Peter Blatty.  Based on a true-ish story about a boy possessed by a demon in the 1950s Blatty changed some of the key details to create this fiction classic.

Director William Friedkin in 1973 just came off an incredible spate of box office successes including 1971’s The French Connection giving him an Academy Award for Best Director. The Exorcist became the biggest financial success of his career but turned out to be something of a curse as well.

The hosts read the book, watched the movie and decide which they like better in this episode. Plus, they talk about trivia about the book and movie.

In this episode they discuss:

    • The backstory of the “real” exorcism from the 1950s
    • Author William Peter Blatty’s writing process
    • The story behind the major casting choices
    • How some of the more famous scenes were created
    • The supposed “Exorcist” curse.

Chris (Ellen Burstyn) speaks to doctors

Fathers Karas (Jason Miller) and Merrin (Max von Sydow) cast out the demon
