Episode 19. Katy Perry and the ULTIMATE CULTURAL APPROPRIATION LITMUS TEST!!!

When America calls, SWOTI answers. It's clear that even after last week's episode, there's still quite a bit of confusion about what cultural appropriation is and isn't, and importantly, why it matters. Katy Perry is trying and missing the mark in her interview with Deray McKesson, Bill Maher is regressing to antebellum sensibilities, and New York Times author Kenan Malik is defending cultural appropriation using, of all people, Elvis Presley as an example. So Brie and Joe buckled down and came up with a six point litmus test that they feel is pretty fool proof. Let them know what you think!

Joe and Brie also recap their 10 year reunion. Were their worst fears fulfilled? Did they kill it?

Finally, they give Bill Maher exactly the amount of attention he deserves.
