Episode 8.5: Let's be real – Elizabeth the Great... Coloniser

This week, we return with our second Let’s Be Real episode, discussing the conflicting reactions spurred by the recent death of Queen Elizabeth II and why ignoring the royal institution’s role in colonisation, poverty, and other social ills becomes a problem not just in recognising global history, particularly surrounding people of colour, but also the ignorance perpetuated in present day. Before that, we catch up on all things film, TV, and literature and ask “What’s the tea, Ivy?”, our newest segment surrounding the latest celebrity gossip, dealing with the strange fallout of Venice Film Festival.
