Dr Bonzel interviewed for debut show of new CASS podcast

Thursday 13 June 2019
'Better Things' the brand new podcast, an initiative run by the ANU College of Arts and Social Sciences, aired its debut episode this past Monday.
To kick off the series the shows producer, Evana Ho, sat down with SLLL screen studies lecturer, Dr Katharina Bonzel, to discuss what mainstream movies can teach us and why we should take them more seriously when watching them.
"Dr Katharina Bonzel watches movies, TV and videos for work. That might sound like a good deal – until you consider that she sometimes has to watch a single film up to 15 times. It’s all for a good cause though. She toils to elucidate the meanings being conveyed, how they’re conveyed, and what they say about society. But she doesn’t just watch the deeply intellectual stuff. She sees value in analysing mainstream fare – and here, she makes the case for why we should too."
You can listen to the full episode right now HERE on the 'Better Things' sample cast page, and expect to find it on major podcast platforms in the near future.
