I Now Pronounce You Internet Trolls

This week on A Bit of Culture, we stray away from the topic of politics for the first time in recent weeks.. sort of. Uma draws parallels between recent media such as Wes Anderson’s Isle of Dogs to the post-GE14 era, where the good guys can come out victorious. Kam gets his first taste of a Twitter argument and comes out wondering, “can internet arguments be fulfilling?”. Sharaad and the group discuss the piece from Simon Schama regarding the recent spectacle of the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and the paradox where the royal family remains a sort of mystique while also trying not to fade into obscurity.
