Cultural Cachet:

We Still Watch Football: the Cultural Dissonance between Accountability and Entertainment

Hosted by Amanda Long & Julia Dyer 

Welcome back! Today, Amanda and Julia analyze one of Amanda’s favorite parts of the fall season: football. They get into the nitty gritty of the NFL with important questions: if the NFL is such a hotbed of toxic masculinity and covert (sometimes overt) racism, why do we love it so much? Why has the NFL survived despite rampant traumatic brain injuries and a continuous inability to hold its own players accountable for abusive behavior? They discuss the patriotism associated with football, the ongoing CTE scandal, the short attention spans of our modern world, and more.
