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 we talk about kicking your characters when they are down, why mediocre movies are important, and optimism. We also talk about the “racial Bechdel test”, which we both forgot is called the DuVernay test, after Ava DuVernay, the director of this very movie!
