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.
On this episode of WTS we’re talking about archetypes of teen girls, the jungle as a site of colonialist imagination, and respect for endangered animals.
