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 we’re covering Coco. We talk about bilingualism, appropriation, erasure of disability, and the inevitability of both death and of being forgotten.
