Episode 111: Scary Evil Ethnic Natives

Racism in MoviesThis week, dear listeners, we have far too much fun discussing RACISM IN MOVIES, because our special guest star is the delightful Duck Washington! Duck is an actor and writer who recently created Caucasian-Aggressive Pandas and Other Mulatto Tales, a stage show about his experience growing up mixed-race, so he has a few things to say about racism.

If you would like to drink along, we recommend either Gnarly Head Cabernet Sauvignon (totally gnarly!) or Low Hanging Fruit Merlot Reserve (because surely you want the higher quality low-hanging fruit).

Here’s a photo of Duck with the wine:
