"That Movie is Fine" Podcast Host Lauren Knight
This week's guest is podcaster and CEO of L.A. Knight Consulting, Lauren Knight.  Lauren is the co-host, along with Aaron Hudson, on the upcoming podcast "That Movie is Fine" where they talk about movies being fine.  We tackle the issue where the movie discourse is about how movies are either the best or the worst thing ever and try to find the common ground that most movies are fine.  In addition to that I learned that she's a huge Sylvester Stallone fan and we discuss her time doing "Syquester Stallone" series online where she watched a lot of Stallone movies.  This episode is the funniest one I've done to date and I hope you all enjoy it.  Lauren Knight Twitter Lauren Knight Instagram L.A.
