Paul and Corey Cross the Streams is a bi-monthly podcast in which hosts Paul Pakler and Corey Pepper watch and review streaming content – so you don’t have to!
The Canon. Who and what gets to belong in the “cultural conversation,” and who gets to decide? Paul and Corey discuss that and more in this month’s episodes. This week, Paul chose the classic King Kong (1933). Where can you even begin with this? Corey described it as “the most offensive film we’ve watched for the show. Start to finish.” Paul and Corey grapple with the tropes used in and ideology of the film, the culture surrounding it, and how and why those continue into the present day.
