140 – Race/Gender/American Politics and Pop Culture

 



time

 

This week, Katey watched some of the BBC's Fleabag and is ready to talk to David and Patches about it! Otherwise, this show is all politics as it relates to pop culture. First, Ava Duvernay's new documentary The 13th is on Netflix and people have opinions! Then, we talk Fleabag until Charlie pulls Katey away before the remaining bros take on the 2016 Election as cinema.

130 – Potter and Politics (in Criticism)

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.
