ScreenTime: Orange Is The New Black

It's a show about a women's prison — and it looks like nothing else on TV. We invite a critic, a federal public defender and a professor of film and media studies to give their reviews of Orange is the New Black.

Guests:

  • Russ Simmons, resident movie critic
  • Carie Allen, Assistant Federal Public Defender for Kansas City
  • Anne Gilbert, Visiting Assistant Professor, Film + Media Studies, University of Kansas

People don't make cameos in news stories; the human story is the story, with characters affected by news events, not defined by them. As a columnist and podcaster, I want to acknowledge what it feels like to live through this time in Kansas City, one vantage point at a time. Together, these weekly vignettes form a collage of daily life in Kansas City as it changes in some ways, and stubbornly resists change in others.
