Fuse writers Lucas Spiro and Matt Hanson once again bang their heads against the walls of some of art’s big questions. First, Lucas schools Matt on Paul Verhoeven and why he’s still important. The boys remember poet Mary Oliver before Matt talks about what he likes about William Giraldi’s new book of literary criticism, American Audacity. Finally, Lucas reads from his piece on Best of Luck with the Wall, the latest incisive short film from Josh Begley, a data artist and law teacher who also writes for The Intercept.
