The Simpsons LEGO Episode, Batman, & Racism in The Jungle Book

 

We finally break the 2hr mark talking about Batman and The Simpsons, first — listing off our favorite episodes and moments — and then shift over to talking about sexism in movies and the Bechdel test again. But if that’s not enough, we close out the podcast with about 30min of discussing racism (centered around a story about “The Jungle Book”). Two white guys and a Puerto Rican dude talking about sexism and racism… seemed only right. Seriously, though, we’d love to hear what you have to say on the topic.

(Also, shoutout to Artiholics for adding the podcast to their site for the first time!)
