The Thrill: Pop-culture lessons, and reviving the theatre

On this week's pop-culture podcast: what we've learned from pop culture, and the Stratford Festival's plan to engage the young


This week, on Maclean’s pop-culture podcast—hosted by Adrian Lee, Emma Teitel and Julia De Laurentiis Johnson—we talk about the things that we’ve learned from our lives engaging with pop culture, from life lessons to practical ones. Then, we’ll talk to Crystal Moselle, director of The Wolfpack, a documentary about six brothers whose horrible living situation—their father didn’t allow them outside their New York apartment—meant that everything they learned was from pop culture. Finally, we talk to Antoni Cimolino, the artistic director of the Stratford Festival, about how to make theatre appealing for young people and why it plans to digitize all its plays from this year on.
