Episode 321

8th October 2021

Shakira was attacked! Attacked by what? Don’t laugh! Broadway is trying to open amidst these Pandemy times, and ‘Jagged Little Pill’ has us ringing our bell of shame in their toxic behavior towards its cast, which plunges us into a discussion around the emotional abuse rampant in the industry. We have watched the full trilogy of the #FreeBritney documentaries that each pull pieces of the tragic story together, but are all of these documentaries necessary? Which one should you watch? Lauren Carter returns to chat about society’s over-indexing on gender.

Episode notes

Shakira was attacked! And during LatinX Heritage month none the less. Attacked by what? Don’t laugh! Broadway is trying to open amidst these Pandemy times, and ‘Jagged Little Pill’ has us ringing our bell of shame in their toxic behavior towards its cast, which plunges us into a discussion around the emotional abuse rampant in the industry. We chat navigating our fears and stigmas around COVID even if we’re vaxxed. We have watched the full trilogy of the #FreeBritney documentaries that each pull pieces of the tragic story together, but are all of these documentaries necessary? Which one should you watch? Lauren Carter returns to chat about society’s over-indexing on gender.
