Welcome back! I missed you! I think you’re great! I think this podcast is great! And in keeping with the sheer exhilaration I am experiencing at the beginning of season 3, I’m going to tell you about a movie that holds a very special place in my heart. In fact, it was deeply formative in my thinking about feminism. That’s right, it’s obviously Jurassic Park. Want to read more hot takes on this 25-year-old movie? HERE YOU GO:
- Feminists everywhere love Jurassic Park so you should go read Lindy West’s brilliant recap, which contains many excellent gifs.
- Do you remember The Toast‘s “if x were your girl/boyfriend” series? Well their archives are back up, which means you can read “If the Velociraptor from Jurassic Park Were Your Girlfriend,” which is exactly as good as it sounds.
- I don’t talk at all about the technology behind Jurassic Park in this episode, but the dinosaurs are VERY COOL and here’s an article about the histories of dinosaurs in film.
The podcast theme song is “Mesh Shirt” by Mom Jeans off their album “Chub Rub.” Listen to the whole album here or learn more about them here. Follow me @hkpmcgregor, follow Kaarina @kaarinasaurus, and tweet about the podcast using #SecretFeministAgenda.
