Inger, Megan, Anitra and Narelle continue their episode by episode forensic examination of 'The Chair'. This time we're examining episode two: the faculty party.
We are joined for this episode by Professor Pauline Reynolds who is a legitimate expert on representations of academics in popular culture. She's even written books and stuff! You can find out about Pauline's research here.
This is a romantic episode, but at least one of us remains unmoved by the relationship development between Ji Yoon and Bill. All of us were triggered by the microagressions and sexism in the party scenes... But we still found lots to laugh about. We hope you do too.
Big shout out to the Academic Aunties Pod mentioned in this episode. You can find it here.
