OSCAR Recap 2013: Council of Feminist Thought


On the Council of Feminist Thought this week is Audra Wilson, host of Vocalo’s newest talk show Practically Speaking, and Britt Julious, blogger at WBEZ and editor at This Recording. The Council asks whether we should expect more from mainstream comedy at the Oscars and discuss the controversy over the Onion’s Quvenzhané Wallis tweet and the public’s mixed reaction.

Brian Babylon: “Are they racist for putting that tweet out? No. It’s the reaction… Call Lena Dunham that and then you tell me how it turns out. Tell me about the kind of apologies and press conferences you would have to do.”
