Could Disney be done with the damsel in distress?
q's pop culture panel weighs in on the worthy, contentious, and mind-boggling stories from the week in arts and entertainment. Opinionated and irreverent, our panel takes pop culture seriously (but not too seriously).
Rachel Giese, Stephen Marche and Charles Officer join Shad to discuss:
- With its allusions to real-life issues, like racial profiling and diversity, does Disney's box-office hit Zootopia signal a move away from princess culture?
- What does the Gawker vs. Hulk Hogan sex-tape case reveal about what's newsworthy, and the difference between the public persona and the private person?
- How did Nancy Reagan pioneer the mixing of politics with pop culture?
