Before the Internet Podcast: ‘Leaving Neverland’ – Fact or Fiction?

Published

on

On Leaving Neverland, Wesley Morris wrote, “If the average cultural experience demands the suspension of disbelief, if we oughtn’t think too much about this movie we’re watching, this novel we’re reading, this magic trick being performed right before our eyes, if being entertained means setting aside skepticism, logic and possibly a sense of morality, then what a magic trick we had in Michael Jackson.”

On this episode of the Before the Internet Podcast, Mike Worby and Aisha Newton join Ricky D to discuss Leaving Neverland, the recent documentary directed and produced by the British filmmaker Dan Reed which focuses on two men, Wade Robson and James Safechuck, who allege they were sexually abused as children by the singer Michael Jackson.

The devastating two-part, four-hour documentary has spurred intense reactions from those who continue to support the late singer and others who have rallied behind his alleged victims. The question is, does Wesley Morris make a point? Did Michael Jackson trick his millions and millions of fans worldwide or is this just another example of both the media and some greedy men looking to get rich?

Watchmen Podcast: Breaking Down “A God Walks into Abar”

Watchmen Podcast A God Walks into Abar

“A God Walks into Abar” is the deeply heartfelt episode we’ve been waiting for!

The wonderfully pun-titled penultimate episode—directed by Nicole Kassell, written by Damon Lindelof and Jeff Jensen— is a powerful love story that spans many years, and told in a disjointed fashion to explain just how the most powerful man in the world wound up in Tulsa, Oklahoma, married to Angel Abar and with his memory wiped out. It’s an amazing hour of television—able to carefully turn a seemingly indecipherable character, into something beautifully textured, human, and meaningful— and we have plenty to say about it.

Our Watchmen podcast will see Simon Howell and an assortment of guests tackle the entire series (or at least the first season). In this eight episode,  Simon Howell , Randy Dankievitch and guest Sean Collettin take a deep dive into “A God Walks Into Abar” and note some of the more astonishing facts of the episode you might have missed.

And for those of you wondering, in order to keep things simple, we’ve decided to upload each episode to the same feed as our other podcast, Before the Internet.
