Go-kart Therapy tells the story of a couple of college buddies and their latest way of dealing with the Cleveland Browns… well, the Cleveland Browns “just being the Browns,” as Bryan Balla would say. Bryan and John Rinaldi are die-hard Browns fans who have found unique ways to cope with the Browns’ perennial losing streaks, fumbles and foibles. Over the last two seasons the Chubb Wagon, an almost half-century-old go-kart with a storied history, has become the perfect balm for the Browns-induced angst and inevitable disappointments.
The documentary about this singular machine was completed in June of 2023, using an iPhone 11 and the latest Adobe Premiere Pro applications.
