MK REWIND: Why Your Camera Is Racist (EP245)

Episode 245

14th July 2020

We are digging into the archives of why your camera is racist, the history of photography, and it’s bias towards lighter tones. Plus we revisit that time when “Jennifer Hudson” called to become a member for the Maximum Fun Drive!

Episode notes

In honor of the Maximum Fun Drive we are digging into the archives for one of our favorite, most popular Korner’s: the history behind why your camera is racist, yes even in the digital age. Plus we resurface one of our celebrity guest callers, who’ve called to become a member during years past Maximum Fun Drives. A one: Jennifer Hudson. No, that’s not James attempting to do an impression sounding like a drunk Fat Albert- that’s offensive- don’t make fun of the way the talented J Hud talks.
