Way Too Seriously is a weekly podcast in which Jan and Paul Moffett talk about the implicit biases, the assumptions, and the thematic implications of kids’ movies with exactly the appropriate level of seriousness.
In this episode of WTS Paul and Jan talk about Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2. We also talk about the evils of hero worship, why it matters if you confuse an ape for a monkey, the moral argument for veganism, and why the workers must seize the means of production to overthrow capitalism.
