Backtalk: Where’s the Justice? & Beguiling Whiteness

This week, Dahlia and Amy discuss the disappointing verdicts of both the mistrial in the sexual assault case against Bill Cosby and the acquittal of the police officer who murdered Philando Castile. They also get into the beguiling whiteness of The Beguiled, a film set during the Civil War with an all-white main cast. We get to rub our petty hands in this week’s Petty Political Pminute since there’s been a delay in voting for Trumpcare—a healthcare plan to ensure the rich remain alive and richer, while working folks try to figure out basic healthcare needs. 

On each episode, we share one thing we saw, read, and heard this week. 

SAW: If you’re looking for a throwback show about women wrestlers, GLOW is for you! Great 80’s aesthetics, ladies transforming into pro-wrestlers, and Dahlia’s fave Kate Nash!

READ: We’re reading this piece about how “25 Years Later, Michelle Pfeiffer’s Catwoman Is Still the Best Superhero Villain,” but still second to Eartha Kitt’s portrayal. 

HEARD: Amy is into the lo-fi, indie pop dream sounds of Sariah Mae’s “Somethings.”
