EP63 - Long before we saw multidimensional LGBTQ characters in pop culture, The Hays Code regulated movies. Homosexual storylines didn't meet the moral standards, and as a result queer characters would be coded into the films. But what does it mean to be queer coded, and what does it mean for stereotypes?

EP57 - Disney's 1992 Aladdin is a childhood classic. Growing up I know it was one of my favorites - but it's important to talk about the story from One Thousand and One Arabian Nights and how its orientalist views later influenced any and all adaptations of Aladdin (and yes, that includes Disney's).

EP49 - The Three Little Pigs and What We Can Learn from History

We can probably all think of examples of stereotypes in pop culture, but what happens when the original content is edited multiple times and years apart, changing the stereotype and erasing what we previously saw and heard. Is that change good or bad, and how does it shape our understanding and knowledge of history?
