In light of the events of August 11th and 12th in Charlottesville, Virginia, we’ve reprogrammed this week’s episode to discuss pertinent and pressing issues: we’re looking at the consequences of hate through American History X versus Threads. Tony Kaye’s American History X from 1998 tackles the origins of racism, and the potential for reform. Meanwhile, Mick Jackson’s 1984 BBC Docu-drama, Threads, looks as closely and realistically as possible at nuclear warfare. With threats against North Korea, and Nazis marching in public, now more than ever we need to take a hard look at the world around us, and ourselves.
Of course, our apologies for the delay in this week’s episode. Family emergencies and illness have kept us … tied up.
