Romanticizing Our Problematic Past Through Film w/ @ImranSiddiquee #KatieSpeakShow Ep104 09/16/2017

In brief: Film and other media representations matter. Imran Siddiquee is back on the show to talk about the problematic romanticizing of our past from “Gone With the Wind” to the upcoming “Confederacy” as well as the role of femininity in “Game of Thrones.” It’s a must-listen conversation that went overtime, so subscribers get a bonus episode with the segment that didn’t make the main show!

Note: This show is available to stream and download for free so it can be accessible for everyone. If you’re able, consider becoming a supporter for as little as $1/month at PATREON or making a one-time donation at Thank you!
