In this podcast series, recovering screenwriter (and Mr. Monitor) Jay Rosen and Tom (the Compliance Evangelist) indulge in passion for the movies by looking at them through the lens of compliance. Jay is a contemporary movie fan and I am more of a classic movie maven so we present a well-rounded view of the movie fandom. If you want to indulge in your love for the movies with two guys who are passionate about Hollywood and get some ideas for your compliance program, this is the podcast series for you. For this  offering, we consider the Star Trek II-The Wrath of Khan.

Some of the highlights include:

  • How did this movie return the series to its television roots?
  • Did they cut back too much on the special effects?
  • What are some of the leadership lessons? Tom has five.
  1. Sometimes you must be vulnerable to be effective.
  2. Always see life as an adventure.
  3. Fortune often favors the brave.
  4. The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few or the one.
  5. Infinite diversity in infinite combinations.
  • What was Tom’s favorite line of the movie?
  • How would Jay the screenwriter, written Spock’s death scene?
  • Tom gives the movie two full buckets of Popcorn and two Diet Cokes along with the popcorn. Jay gives the movie a full bucket of fresh popcorn with Milk Duds mixed in.
