There are just some things you don’t joke about.

We have all heard people tell us just that — it’s wrong, it’s too serious, it’s inappropriate, it’s disrespectful.  Whatever the reasoning might be, each and every one of us has either thought it, said it, or heard it. Well, on this week’s podcast we talk to Ferne Pearlstein, a director whose new film, “The Last Laugh,” talks to comedians about making Holocaust jokes.

Yup, Holocaust jokes.

The movie is currently out in New York, opens in L.A. on the 17th, and will expand further after that.

Not content to leave the podcast there, we also have a brief discussion today of “Moana.”  I put “Moana” above “Finding Dory” and “Zootopia” on my list of 2016’s best animated films.
