The Harpies' Retrospective
About This Show
Where two tired teachers from Aotearoa revisit media (and sometimes food) from their youth. Rie & Bea deal with the overwhelming paperwork of teaching and their climate change denying caretaker with a mix of media comfort food and snark. They chat about how the media stands up today and what their students might think. They're different ages, one read a lot of christian historical fiction and one did not. If they weren't so worn out zaniness might ensue. Cats.

This week we're joined by our dream of a colleague and friend, Claire, to discuss The Witches. The terrifying Roald Dahl story from our childhood is still pretty frightening in parts and Anjelica Huston is still 100% a glorious queen. We discuss the misogyny we notice in this story and the wider world of Roald Dahl, feel conflicted over where our sympathies should lie (we too have been made to gag by children) and have our first ever anti-extra credit!
