April 25, 2016 Episode 9: Hollywood and Race (Let’s Offend Everyone)
Join us as we try to understand how Hollywood sees race and handles non-traditional casting. From the recent Ghost in the Shell casting controversy to stereotypical casting. Do aliens have human concepts of race? Do accents or voice acting/CGI have a double standard? What about weight and gender? Is it possible to properly portray another race in any form? Or is all just part of the Hollywood cash machine? Listen was we attempt to navigate this minefield without completely blowing ourselves up.
Also in this episode: RIP Prince, Chyna, & Doris Roberts, the Warcraft 2nd trailer, RDJ in Spider-Man Homecoming, Jason Bourne, & Star Fox Zero.
