130 – Potter and Politics (in Criticism)

 

sorting

 

 

 

Plus a "bad" mini segment

This week, Patches, Joanna, David and Da7e wake up to find themselves in a world where Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts 1 & 2 is published Potter canon. Then, Patches wants to talk about the trend of "Bad" movies after disliking Bad Moms. The bulk of the podcast is spent debating just how much (if at all) a person can separate their politics from viewing and discussing a movie. It doesn't get super specific about the politics side, we know you hate it when we do that.
