38: Forgetting Memories, Disney's Past, Social Media Privacy
Play episode · 1 hr 18 min
None of us got shot at our viewings of “Joker” this weekend, so your regular #Millennial experience can resume uninterrupted!

  • We’re so glad to see the public has evolved from thinking Hillary Clinton’s pneumonia was a death sentence, to responding to Bernie Sanders’ heart attack by saying “get well soon, champ!” #progress
  •  Laura provides the latest on impeachment: people are mostly ignoring subpoenas, because that’s normal, right?
  • There is now a second whistleblower, and Demented Donald is showing all signs of feeling the impeachment net tightening.
  • Disney+ is launching next month with a couple of notable exclusions: “Song of the South,” in addition to the “Dumbo” Jim Crow scene will not be viewable on the platform. How should Disney walk the line between acknowledging its racist history and demonstrating that these depictions are no longer reflective of who they are?
  • The Justice Department wants a backdoor into your Facebook and WhatsApp messages, and we have FEELINGS.
  • The chat leads us into our Filtered Messages inbox on Facebook, where we find that people have sent us some... interesting... communications.
  • Would you rather forget all your past memories and only be able to generate new ones, or hold onto your past memories and be unable to create new ones?
  • This week’s Surprise Bitch! victim is Morgan, who Andrew will be texting for therapy from here on out.
  • This week’s recommendations are pretty wholesome: the Hermann Whole Brain model (Laura), Trader Joe’s for all things pumpkin spice (Pam), and Pete Buttigieg’s book, “Shortest Way Home” (Andrew).
  • This episode of #Millennial is sponsored by Honey (automatically save money online), Away (use promo code MILL for $20 off a suitcase), and VistaPrint (use code MILL for free shipping!). Support #Millennial by supporting our sponsors!

And in this week’s installment of After Dark, available exclusively on Patreon:

  • Andrew has a personal update with a happy ending that can only live behind our paywall.
  • The BBC has determined that “Cather in the Rye” is no longer hip and in touch with the current adolescent population. This prompts us to look back on what literature and media we may have loved as young people that hasn’t aged well.
  • Should we as a culture be willing to abandon a story due to its being outdated?
  • Andrew has some strong thoughts about the future of casting in the Wizarding World.

About Us On HORSE, we don’t analyze wins and losses. We talk beefs, dig into Internet drama, and have fun. The NBA is now a 365-day league and it's never been more present in pop culture. From Kevin Durant's burner accounts to LeBron taking his talents anywhere to trusting the Process, the NBA is becoming a pop culture requirement. At the same time, sports can have gatekeepers that make it insular and frustrating for people who aren't die hard fans. We’re here to prove that basketball is entertaining to follow for all fans, whether you’re actively watching the games or not.

Sapphic Horror w/ Emily M. Danforth - Ep. 154
No trick and all treat, author emily m. danforth (Plain Bad Heroines, The Miseducation of Cameron Post) joins us this week to dyke out about all things sapphic and spooky. Why do "final girls" code as queer? Are queers more drawn to the horror genre in their youth? What scares us the most? Why is Melody so afraid of bees???? Plus, Emily gives us the scoop on her latest novel full of gothic mischief and oh-so-gay. We also talk about our costumes from U-Hauloween and learn more about how Ali's mom tries to be an Ali. Finally, we end with a question from a listener who is frustrated by her dating life after moving to a more urban area. Here's a partial list of movies and books referenced in this conversation: Scream Halloween Watcher in the woods The Town that Dreaded Sundown It Halloween The Haunting of Hill House The Haunting of Bly Manor Annihilation Jennifer's Body Gideon the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir, Her Body and Other Parties by Carmen Maria Machado A Line In The Dar by Melinda Lowes The Return by Rachel Harrison Do you have a voting plan? -Get extra content, support the pod, and get to know other listeners by joining our Patreon community.
