Episode 149: Watch Old Movies

Posted by citizendame in citizen dame, podcast, film history

Hello! This week, we're talking about the latest (and weirdest?) round of Old Movie Naysayers and how ignoring old films means ignoring an important record of our cultural history.  Plus we discuss how you're missing out on the experience of Oscar Micheaux and other Black filmmakers and their incredible, vital art.

Bonus: Judas and the Black Messiah

Episode 148: Dame of the Nineties

The Dames spend this week talking about how Joss Whedon is even more of a Garbage Person than we originally imagined, how Britney Spears was done wrong by the media, and how Mae West threatened patriarchy so much, they had to make up an entire code of censorship to stop her.
