Hello! Just a quick note about this week, as it is a little bit different than our usual posts.
First of all, we would like to give a content warning for this episode. As the film itself does cover sexual assault as a primary theme of the movie, this may be troubling for some to listen to. We do not get graphic at any point, other than describing the plot and scenes in the film, but sexual assault is discussed, and we thought that it would not be fair to release this episode without giving a content warning.
Also because of the director. Roman Polanski is a troubling individual to talk about and a troubling person to view critically as a director or artist. We feel that the content warning for our discussion of a work by Polanski is even more deserving of a warning. Rosemary’s Baby is a fictional film; Polanski is a real person who has done real things that are disturbing. We don’t delve into any of those here, but we are still discussing a work by a troubling and troubled individual.
Because of these peculiarities, we are releasing two episodes this week: this one, a main show discussing a film, and a MeMeMe episode, which some of you know is a catch all type of show where we discuss the things that we have been consuming and enjoying recently. We are doing this so that people who are not inclined to listen to this particular episode will still have some content from us to listen to and hopefully enjoy.
