Theme Park Reel-view #2: Blackfish

Hey there, listeners. SurferClock here, along with TAP-G, to bring you the latest episode of "What's the Attraction?"

As promised last week, Reel-view #2 is here, and we're doing Blackfish! If the episode seems a little long, it's because unlike all our other episodes, we typically don't edit Reel-views, and we had a lot to say (and cite) regarding this film. Controversy has abounded regarding Blackfish, a 2013 documentary by one Gabriela Cowperthwaite which takes a look at an orca attack at SeaWorld Florida in 2010 that took the life of one Dawn Brancheau by first making its way through Tilikum the orca's history, a sweeping and overall look at the state of orcas in captivity. What did we think of it? Well, listen in, and know that unlike Ms. Cowperthwaite, we didn't rely on snappy editing and omission of facts to make our opinion known.
