The Thrill: Cinderella, an anti-Kanye petition, and Trevor Noah

Catch our latest pop culture podcast. Let us know what you think!


Every Friday, Maclean’s arts writers Adrian Lee, Emma Teitel and Julia De Laurentiis Johnson gather to discuss and break down the hottest topics in TV, film, books and music. Expect discussion, analysis and interviews, all replicating the feeling of having a coffee and talking pop with your friends!

On this week’s podcast (published early, for Easter long weekend!), we discuss Cinderella—but just so we don’t get cynical about a Disney remake, we invited in middle-school student to tell us if teens still need fairy tales. We also argue over a petition to ban Kanye West from Ottawa Bluesfest—does it make any sense?—and discuss the outrage over Daily Show host Trevor Noah’s ill-advised old tweets.
