141: Finding the story for 'Cars 3'


In this episode, we'll hear a presentation about finding the story for "Cars 3" with writers Mike Rich, Bob Peterson and Kiel Murray and story supervisor Scott Morse. They'll discuss, among other things, social barrier-breaking real racers who inspired the story, the background of Cruz Ramirez, and how the team dug into the audio archives for Paul Newman and Tom Magliozzi.
