Discussion (and lots of spoilers) of the film Me and Earl and the Dying Girl.

Andy Balaam speculates from the title that it is a bit like American Pie, but Andy Cockerill patiently explains that it is a genuinely funny film about someone learning the joy of allowing others to get close, despite the inevitable pain that is part of that experience. It’s a film that is genuinely truthful, which satisfies the other Andy that it is something that deserves to exist. The discussion digresses into areas such as Star Wars, Interstellar and death.

The podcast that Andy Balaam mentioned on the show is Episode 8 of The Liturgists podcast in which Science Mike and Josh discuss all the scientific flaws in Interstellar, while simultaneously claiming it is scientifically reasonable.
