    Joker: Why Make a Sympathetic Shooter?

    Joker: Why Make a Sympathetic Shooter?

    EP70 - Let’s talk about toxic masculinity, gun violence, and mental illness in Joker. Because here’s the real question: in a world where we can see real life mass shootings on TV and read about them in newspapers and hear about them on the radio, why do we need a movie that celebrate and sympathizes with the shooter?

    Harry Potter, Representation, and Intention

    EP69 - Whether you've read the books, watched the movies, both, or never have and never will, everyone knows Harry Potter. But what we like to avoid are the issues: from lack of representation and stereotypes to what JK Rowling does (and doesn't do) to make headlines today.

    ESG, Sampling, and Sexism

    ESG, Sampling, and Sexism

    EP68 - Have you ever heard of ESG? They're a band made up of four sisters that blend genres, merging funk, punk, and hip hop. And whether you realize it or not you’ve probably heard their music. How? ESG’s track “UFO” is one of the most sampled songs of all time, appearing in music from Tupac, The Notorious B.I.G., Marilyn Manson, The Beastie Boys, Nine Inch Nails, and more. And even though “UFO” was written by a group of women, much of the time their music is put behind misogynistic lyrics - regardless of their permission.

    The One Where We Talk About Friends

    The One Where We Talk About Friends

    EP67 - To put it simply, Friends was a phenomenon, not just influencing TV and pop culture, but American beliefs and values. Friends aired from 1994 to 2004, and while it may have been progressive for its time, now it just feels dated and problematic. But let’s take a closer look at how the show is essentially a time capsule, discussing how casual homophobia, gender stereotypes, sexism, transphobia, and racism can become a normalized part of society.

Smart, well-researched, to-the-point

I learn a lot from this show - eye-opening and important for those of us who love pop culture but want to explore the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes to entertainment, values and progress.

A Solid Deep Dive Show!

Came for the Game of Thrones thoughts. Stayed for the solid research and strong explanations.

Morgan is a fantastic host. She really does her research into the various topics she covers. Of course, I'm a pop culture nut, so the topics are right up my alley.

A strong recommend from me!
