Twilight and Problematic Faves

Catherine Rae joins us to discuss the Twilight story, its toxic understandings of relationships, and her reading habits at age 14. We talk about why these books and movies are both so toxic and so popular, the ways we dismiss the things that young girls love, and what it means to have a problematic favorite.

Catherine Rae is a thirsty and proud member of the Stranded Panda Embarrassment. She is a reader and writer and runner living in the smallest state. Please send her pictures of your pets.

Riki Hayashi and Matthew Fox explore the ethical questions from the stories geeks love—superheroes, sci-fi, anime, fantasy, video games, and so much more.
