Ep 114: Ariana, J. Lo, & Critical Race Theory Today we discuss buzz around J. Lo's Motown Grammy performance in relation to theories of cultural appropriation, Arianna Grande's performance of race in relation to the notion of black fishing, and also use our critical race theory skills to unpack notions of Whiteness, how essentialism complicates these critiques, and also how it all connects to capitalism. We draw on and amplify Black writers/theorists and as always understand if you want to hear this analysis from POC instead of us! We also spend some time on the recent Ryan Adams expose, and the backlash against Congresswoman Ilhan Omar.

EP 113: The "Crazy" Women of the 90s In this episode we talk about the "crazy women" narratives perpetuated by the news media in the 1990s (Lorena Bobbit, Marsha Clark, Tonya Harding, Monica Lewinsky, Amy Fisher, etc.). Inspired by the new Lorena documentary by Jordan Peele and accompanying press, we dig into the whitewashing of Lorena Bobbit, nostalgia of 90s culture, the narrative redemption of these women, and how post-feminism relates to all of this.

Ep 112: Capitalist Realism In this episode, we chat about "Capitalist Realism" by Mark Fisher. It's like a two-person book club that you can listen in on? More seriously, we talk about Fisher's argument about mental health and its direct correlation with capitalism. **trigger warning for discussions about mental health causation** Fisher also has some things to say about students and the "communicative sensation-stimulus matrix" which we also dive into. And before all that we talk about the Gillette ad that has a few select men's undies in a bundle.
