In this episode of FFR, Anita’s off giving talks in different cities so the podcast falls to Ebony and Carolyn this week, who do their best to fill the big Anita-shaped hole in all our hearts. The focus of this episode is Lorena, the new four-part documentary series on Amazon Prime which takes a fresh look at a case that set the tabloid world on fire in 1993: the case of Lorena Bobbitt. The new doc offers a deep, thoughtful examination of all the elements at work in the trial and the public’s perception of it: the nation’s failures to treat domestic abuse as a serious issue, media standards (or the lack thereof), cultural attitudes about men and women, and so much more.
Also, a few words about Terry Crews, Steven Spielberg, and as always, our personal shoutouts in What’s Your Deal?
