HELLO LISTENERS! I went to the Dallas FanExpo this weekend, which was super fun but took the whole day, so I am a little late posting this. But I got to see Mark Hamill on a panel and I got to shake Gail Simone’s hand and have a little chat, so that was pretty awesome. And now we get to have the next installment of the recaps! So it’s been a pretty good couple days.
In this episode, Roshawn and I discuss the little scandal surrounding Rowling’s handling of Native Americans in her fresh new mythology based in the New World. Roshawn and I are pretty much in agreement that there’s a million better ways this could have been handled, or indeed it could have been left well alone. There is really no reason someone with the resources Rowling has wouldn’t have been able to have been able to get this looked at by someone in the position to advise her to make some big changes.
After that, we get into the Supercut that the insanely generous Austin Lacy made for Prisoner Of Azkaban, and we’re trying something different this time. Because we got some feedback about people having trouble hearing our commentary over the Supercut, we’re taking short pauses every few minutes to discuss (okay let’s be honest, cackle over) some of the crazy shit she said. I can’t wait for you to hear this.
Thank you all again for listening, and I will see you tomorrow with the next Penny Dreadful!
