Pandas are Dumb (aka Sorting in Fiction)

Today we explore sorting and choosing factions in pop culture. When does it work? When is it problematic? Primarily, we talk about the sorting processes in Harry Potter and the Divergent series. Note: if you have not read the 3rd Divergent book, Allegiant, there are some spoilers, but we warn you ahead of time.

After that, we assign each other pop culture homework! Meg and Jen each choose a TV show for the other to watch for the first time. Watch along with us, if you like! We will be discussing these in the next episode.

As always, our intro/outro music is “We are Highscore” by Krackatoa.

Thanks for listening!
