Episode 256

21st August 2020

We look into The Old Guard, The Wire, and West World S3 which are touching on themes in the cultural Zeitgeist. Moury takes us through a deep dive into the systemic mistreatment of Black folks in the medical industry, where that comes from, and why it still persists today. Also why do Black folks have to pay taxes- ain’t we paid enough?

Episode notes

The DNC just wrapped, and we are going to take a beat, and circle back to that next. So this week, we’re going to have a little fun, Moury is here and we are going to dive into three shows that are tapping into the cultural Zeitgeist that we have devoured during the Pandemic: The Wire which has been eye-opening in understanding underserved communities and issues surrounding policing systems, West World Season 3 and what it means to be human, and The Old Guard which as us feeling seen as they are including diverse folks in their action storytelling and breaking ground and passing the Vito Russo Test for Queer representation.  Moury takes us through a deep dive into the systemic mistreatment of Black folks in the medical industry, where that comes from, and why it still persists today.
