The following is not a normal podcast. There's no discussion of movies, television or games, there's no pithy clips pulled to highlight our points. It's a simple conversation between four friends about a truly heinous situation that we've found ourselves having to deal with this week and as such it is a bit disorganized and emotionally raw.
This podcast was recorded to directly address the current situation and controversy surrounding the Alamo Drafthouse, Tim League, Devin Faraci and Fantastic Fest.
We feel that this is one of the most important tests facing our film geek community right now and we would be remiss if we didn't address it as critics, as fans and as feminists. But we understand that it's not what we normally talk about and as such you may feel like you want to skip it.
We hope you don't.
This is an important and ongoing conversation about our culture and the way its evolved and while this is by no means a final statement, it is a starting point for us, if not all of you, going into Fantastic Fest.
While we do not talk about the specifics of the allegations leveled at Devin we understand that this entire conversation regarding the fallout and League's response to his critics may be triggering for some so please take care of yourself.
