What happens in this episode?
This episode was recorded live on 27th August 2020 – broadcast live on Twitch.
The Raggedyman is joined by Claire Blackshaw, a new guest to the show who is a streamer, dreamer, code engineer and games philosopher. The multi-podcast host Hugh K. David and fellow Bunkazilla contributor Lizzie Barnes are also on hand for this episode. As always, each guest brings a pop or geek culture themed topic to dissect and discuss.
Hugh begins the discussion by looking at Disney’s plans to release their big-budget live-action adaptation of Mulan straight to Disney+ in the wake of COVID-19 and a restrictive worldwide cinema launch strategy. Is Mulan a film people would be happy to pay extra for – on top of their current Disney+ subscription?
With Facebook starting to take the ownership reigns of Oculus, the second topic provided by Claire brings attention to the potentially worrying raft of changes Facebook have already begun to implement on current and prospective Oculus VR users.
Finally, Lizzie takes a look at positive representations of disability in the geek culture sphere with the use of Doom Patrol’s Rita Farr. Lizzie also sheds light on some the positive ways disabilities are being represented in worlds such as Dungeons & Dragons and cosplay.
