This week, Anita and Ebony are joined by the wonderful feminist Muslim Iranian-American comedian Zahra Noorbakhsh, who brings a bevy of insights to the table: How does the CW superhero show Black Lightning pay homage to the 60s sitcom Bewitched? How is the “manventure” movie Jaws actually about intersectional feminism? Zahra reveals all this and more, as the gang also talks about Saturday Night Live’s clumsy attempts to use comedy to address the #MeToo moment, the troubling kind of “strong female character” depicted in Atomic Blonde, and how you can take a class on Get Out, racism and black horror from the comfort of your home!
