Katya Kazbek joins Teen to discuss the recent film Borat Subsequent Moviefilm. This isn't a film review, but a critical discussion of Borat as a form of xenophobia and racism that is endemic to liberal politics. In particular, the way liberalism is built on a foundation of superiority, which requires internalizing the idea of the foreign Other as inferior (though not necessarily unliked). This was a really fun discussion, and if you loved Borat we're not trying to impugn you for it, promise!

This is Part 1 of 2—Part 2 is a Patreon-only episode.
