Joe Carrol's Rate My Professor Is All Chili Peppers Following the Following

    • TV & Film

Katherine and Grant recap "The Poet's Fire," Season 1, Episode 3 of "The Following." But first, there's a more serious discussion of the politics of talking about TV shows that focus on cops and the FBI at a time in which American culture is coming to terms with how cop shows often lead audiences to identify with the police, which serves to legitimate popular support of the police (rather than, for instance, questioning how support for the police intersects with and opposes movements for racial justice such as Black Lives Matter).

All this, plus a discussion of a particularly crazy early episode, the fact that Joe Carrol is just such a good teacher that of course he's going to get students to be serial killers, and the usual segments, a 20 questions based game, and more!

Books mentioned in this episode include: Sasha Torres's "Black, White, and In Color: Television and Black Civil Rights" and Adam Kotsko's "Why We Love Sociopaths: A Guide to Late Capitalist Television."
