About This Show
Show Info: Named after the groundbreaking 1985 novel from media theorist Neil Postman, the podcast Amusing Ourselves to Death takes a critical look at the media through the lens of race, gender, and class. With a humorous touch, we dissect and analyze everything from high art to low art, pop culture to politics. Listen as we go over topics ranging from whitewashing and cultural appropriation to trashy TV spectacles and comic books, sometimes in the same episode. With a taste for eclecticism and keen interest in the pop culture landscape, no item is off-limits. The NYC based duo of Morgan and Evelyn both share a background in the arts, with Evelyn's towards fashion and painting and Morgan being a filmmaker. We thank you for listening, and appreciate any and all feedback. Feel free to reach out with suggestions for shows, comments, or whatever else might be on your mind.
