Podcast for Social Research, Episode 55.5, Shortcast: Heathers

In this Podcast for Social Research Shortcast, BISR’s Ajay Singh Chaudhary and Isabella Likte consider the genre of teen comedy—or, in this case, a macabre critique of the genre. Sitting down for a short discussion in advance of our People’s Choice Back-to-School screening of Michael Lehmann’s 1989 film Heathers at BISR Central, Ajay and Isi probe (late) Gen-X social utopias and the dark side of Reagan’s “morning in America.” This Shortcast is a sneak preview of Ajay and Isi’s new podcast subseries Pop-Cultural Marxism, which debuts next week, so stay tuned!
