Latest Podcast Rooftop Koreans Are Not Your Daddy — ft. Pix ('Escape From Plan A' Ep. 198)
by Plan A Editors

In this special two-part episode, EFPA discusses a couple of films that have made the news lately (though for different reasons). First, Teen and returning guest Doug Kim (filmmaker, actor) talk about why Bong Joon Ho’s Parasite is a modern masterpiece. Then (starting at the 39 min mark), Chris and Mark are joined by returning guest Mtume Gant (filmmaker, actor) to dissect what went so horribly wrong with Harriet and why the controversy should be a warning sign as to how Hollywood manipulates history for its agenda, especially the histories of minorities.
