Welcome to the third edition of The Cord Cutter Podcast! This week we sit down with CinemaBlend video producer Jeff McCobb to talk about the Netflix original movie Okja. As the streaming service moves into producing more and more original films, we're starting to get some very...interesting productions, and Okja is certainly one of those. This star-studded action/adventure/drama (with some comedic overtones) focuses on a young Korean girl who has to save her best friend (a smart and gentle super pig named Okja) from the multi-national corporation that created it.
