Dr. Oliver Speck is the guest on this week's episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show.

Oliver is a professor of Film Studies at Virginia Commonwealth University. He is the author or editor of numerous books and articles, most recently the new volume Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained: The Continuation of Metacinema.

In this episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show, Oliver and Chauncey discuss Tarantino's films, the politics of race and meaning in Django Unchained, media and representation, historical memory and Germany, terrorism, ISIS, and digital culture. 

As a bonus, Dr. Speck sat down for a second round where he shared his thoughts about the Paris terror attacks, the San Bernardino gun rampage, and other matters. Oliver is a smart, fun, and witty guest. It was a pleasure to chat with him at the virtual bar known as The Chauncey DeVega Show.

During this episode, Chauncey DeVega commits a dangerous act of soda alchemy, discusses Obama's final State of the Union speech, and shares a story about how black folks turned a racial slur into something "beautiful" and the temptations said ugly word has for some white folks when they get drunk. In this week's show, Chauncey also says goodbye to David Bowie and shares his thoughts on the documentary God Loves Uganda
