Episode 54 - Disney Princesses

It's time for episode 54, in which we discuss our feelings, thoughts, and connections (or lack thereof) with Disney and, more specifically the Disney princesses. How do princess ideals of femininity tie into our own lives? Is Missy truly a Disney princess? Who gets to be a princess? Also, for real, if you're a TV executive and you want to get together on As Scene on TV, let us know.

REMINDER: All of our Patreon dollars and merch sales for this month will be donated to charity. If you've considered buying a piece of merchandise or subscribing to Patreon, doing so this month will not only give you a shiny new piece of swag and/or access to all of our Patreon exclusive content, but also warm your heart because it will be donated to charities like Planned Parenthood, the American Civil Liberties Union, and the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Episode 25 - False Empowerment

We’re back with episode 25 (whoa! 25 episodes!), discussing false empowerment. What does false empowerment mean? Does dubious intent on the part of a creator mean you can’t feel empowered by something? What the heck is going on in Sucker Punch? We’ll attempt to answer these questions, except for what’s going on in Sucker Punch—that’s a mystery for the ages. 

Just some housekeeping updates: we launched a Patreon! If you like what we do and want to help us keep doing it bigger and better, you can donate a small amount per episode for sweet rewards. We’re looking to bump up our audio quality first and foremost, and we only need $7.50 more per episode to do it!

Secondly, we’re now on Stitcher! If you don’t have access to iTunes and want to listen to us on the go (or you want any of Stitcher’s other cool features), now you can use your favorite radio streaming service to listen to us as well. Lucky you!
