Burst Your Bubble

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.

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

"Nice look at pop culture history through a modern lens. I like Morgan Jaffe's analysis, and for me it's interesting to revisit some of the culture that I grew up with and see it through fresh eyes. I don't always agree, but I always find myself thinking about her ideas. Recommended."
