The Whorer’s 2017 New Year Resolutions

2017

As The Whorer celebrates 5 years of podcasting, we’d like to share our goals and reaffirm our values for the new year. In 2017, The Whorer will…

  • only feature films created by people of color, women, and LGBTQ folks for monthly podcast episodes.
  • report on at least 1 new-to-us fan convention or film festival.
  • continue to present and run panels about feminism and horror films at local (Tennessee) fan conventions.
  • continue to self-educate and be mindful of our own implicit bias when reviewing films.
  • continue to critique and challenge the kyriarchy through our focus on film and its industry.

In case you missed it, here’s our “5 Year Reflection” episode. Do you have a film to recommend for analysis? A must-experience event or topic for a fan panel? Share it with us!
