EP54 - Sixteen Candles is an 80s classic, but when you rewatch it it's easier to see the films problems: racism, homophobia, and - above all - that masculinity and a guy's reputation are marked by the relationships and control men have over women.

Have you ever watched the show One Day at a Time? The remake of the 1975 sitcom is a present day story of the Cuban American Alvarez family. The remake - brought to life largely in part by Gloria Calderón Kellett, a Cuban American, and a half Latinx writing team - is in danger of not being renewed for its 4th season. Listen as we look at either why you should be watching the show or reminding you exactly why you love it.

EP46 - Conversion Therapy in Pop Culture: From Will & Grace to Boy Erased

EP46.png

Conversion therapy shows up a lot in pop culture, but how is it shown? As a comedy? As a drama? What time period does the story takes place in? Because depending on what the answers are, these representations can be damaging, sending the message that conversion therapy is the problem of a bygone era.
