Anna and Emily consider the tricky question of BIPOC actors playing characters with typically "white" names. Is it liberating? Or is it whitewashing? They also manage to thumb in some chat on banana bread and baby farts.

Listen to our 4th July 2020 episode "Big Mouth, Bojack, Cleveland: Race in Animation" minisode to hear more chat about mismatched characters.

Once again we apologise for the poor sound quality on this episode. Anna is basically having to leap at Emily with a recorder whilst a baby is attached to her boob in order to get a recording in so please, have a heart.
