On the Overthinking It Podcast, we tackle “The Menu” and “Triangle of Sadness,” two satires of the ultra-wealthy.

Peter Fenzel, Jordan Stokes, and Matthew Wrather overthink The Menu and Triangle of Sadness, movies in which the rich eat, and we are encouraged to eat the rich. Focusing mostly on the longer and more analytical Triangle, the crew of the S.S. Overthinking It tends to the needs of our guests, the audience without question or pause. How extreme wealth is represented, the intersectional social commentary that includes class, race, and disability in its account, and what really happens at the end of the film all come up in the lively discussion.
