A Society, Culture and TV podcast featuring Morgan Jaffe
 1 person rated this podcast
Burst Your Bubble is a podcast that looks at racism, sexism, homophobia, and all of the other -isms and -phobias within our society through pop culture.

From music and movies to comic books and games, hatred, bigotry, and ignorance seep into our everyday lives. What is important is to dissect it and discuss it, and not just accept it as something we cannot process or change.

New episodes will be released the 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month.

I Love Lucy: The All American Girl and "The Latin"
EP64 - I Love Lucy starred Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz as Lucy and Ricky Ricardo. Arnaz was Cuban American, and so the real life married couple was the first interracial couple on television at a time when the typical TV family was suburban, middle class, and white; in the real world there were anti-miscegenation laws, immigration quotas, and xenophobia. On one hand I Love Lucy created more representation in the media, but on the other the show certainly had its problems. Art by Jeremy Ferris.

The Queer Coded Villain and Sounding Gay
EP63 - Long before we saw multidimensional LGBTQ characters in pop culture, The Hays Code regulated movies. Homosexual storylines didn't meet the moral standards, and as a result queer characters would be coded into the films. But what does it mean to be queer coded, and what does it mean for stereotypes?

Breakfast at Tiffany's, Yellowface, and Whitewashing
EP62 - Breakfast at Tiffany's may be a classic film but it's hard to ignore Mr. Yunioshi, a Japanese character played by a white man in yellowface. While discussing this adaptation of Truman Capote's 1958 novel, let's look at the history of yellowface in Hollywood, reminding ourselves that while we might not see someone doing such a blatant caricature yellowface and its racism, xenophobia, and orientalism still seeps into pop culture today - but now more covertly through whitewashing.
