Episode notes

A black and white photo from Camp Jened in the 1970's. One man is carrying another man. They're both laughing. This is from the documentary 'Crip Camp.'

Crip Camp

Reporting live from our own little cubicles of sound, we have a phenomenal episode this week. We discuss our very first documentary on the show, Netflix’s heartwarming and inspiring Crip Camp. We’re joined by IndieWire’s TV editor Kristen Lopez. Kristen writes a great deal about disability visibility in the media and her insight into this film is nothing short of revelatory. Plus, we introduce a new segment – “This Is Your Movie Life!” Every week we will discuss the films that had the greatest impact on our hosts at specific times in their lives. This week we are covering “The Grade School Years.”

Staff Picks:

Ify – Gurren Lagann
Drea – Waves
Alonso – How to Survive a Plague
Kristen – The Great Mouse Detective

With Ify Nwadiwe, Drea Clark, Alonso Duralde, and Kristen Lopez.
