The following is, one again, not a normal podcast. It's a simple conversation between four friends about a truly heinous situation that has continued to unfold around us in ever expanding circles.
In the week before Fantastic Fest, we sat down to directly address the situation that had developed with Tim League, Devin Faraci, and Fantastic Fest. We were joined by two good friends and members of the film community and we discussed our feelings, our hopes and our fears for the festival we were all about to attend.
Well that festival is over and we thought we'd record
a part two of that conversation, especially
considering the additional allegations coming to light in
other related spheres. This has, after all, hardly been an
isolated incident. So that's exactly what we did. We recorded
another podcast. It's not our final word on the matter, but
for now it is the last time we'll devote an entire podcast to
particular topic. (Knock on wood.)
We've said it before and we'll say it again, these are not isolated incidents, but it is an important time for our community to consider how its culture has treated women in general and specifically when they speak up about harassment and assault.
When this podcast ends, the conversation won't. And it can't.
