Movie Date: Film as Political Propaganda

From and

Heavy stuff this week. "October Baby" tells the story of a woman's discovery that her mother almost aborted her. Intended or not, the movie's politics — see what happens when you don't have an abortion? — align comfortably with those of the religious Right. Likewise, the recent film "The Lorax" and 2006's "Happy Feet" decry the ills of global warming in a quintessentially liberal parlance. But not all movies have agendas, right?

In this week's podcast, Kristen and Rafer tread lightly through these touchy subjects, but leave no stone unturned in their quest for truth.
