Silence of the Lambs turned 30 on Valentine's Day this year, so a bunch of us decided to celebrate by watching this romantic movie (distanced, of course), plus various other Hannibal and/or Jonathan Demme movies, and then got together (distanced, of course) to talk about them. It's a pivotal movie for both Demme's career as a director and Hannibal Lecter's career as a major villain. Something something eat some fava beans and listen!

With this year's more diverse Oscars trying to make up ground lost by the #OscarsSoWhite debacles of previous years, and issues of representation getting more attention than ever (especially in Trump's America), your friends at decided to sit down and have a conversation about representation and identification issues in popular culture. Marisa, Sara, Jon, Jesse, and Nathaniel talk about media that's spoken to us for those reasons, try to differentiate between representation and identification, and talk about all manner of movies and TV shows, past and present, including Hidden Figures, Moana, Manchester by the Sea, Moonlight, and many more. It's one of our longest and widest-ranging conversations, but we think it's well worth listening to!
