That's a Thing?!

What do we do about “bad” art? Argue about it on Twitter, mostly. This episode, Elizabeth and Karen step into a space of nuance in an attempt to understand shipping wars, extreme fandom behaviour, and the value of uncomfortable art.

What is That's a Thing?!?

A sometimes belated, already outdated guide to your teens, tweens and everything under 20. In each episode, Elizabeth, a teenager, explains a thing to Karen, her mother. And Karen tells Elizabeth how that thing relates to something she knows. Maybe.
