Roasting anti-semitism, getting ‘Elemental’ and celebrating dads

In this week’s episode of The Bagel Report, Esther discovers what it means to do a comedy roast for a concept, Erin recommends the new Pixar film “Elemental,” which is about an ember and a wave who fall in love, and represents a variety of immigration stories. And, with Father’s Day in the rearview mirror, the Bagels talk about their dads — and muse over casting ideas.
