Hollywood and its abuse problem – Comparative Opinions Episode 66

Welcome to the Comparative Opinions podcast! This week picks up the conversation started in Week in Geek Episode 11, which ran long enough to be its own segement. Hosts Holly and David have been talking about this news story for the last few weeks, as well, as it has grown and snowballed. By abuse, there are many meanings, but more than anything what seems to unite all the stories going on right now is “abuse of power.” So the hosts tackle this topic more, and ask, what do you do when it comes to consuming media backed or made by these individuals?

The question that leads the discussion comes from this article from the Mary Sue: https://www.themarysue.com/what-to-do-about-hollywood-creeps/
