21: Deep Thoughts About Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark

January 23, 2024

That [imperialist, whip-wielding archeologist] belongs in a museum!

On today’s Deep Thoughts, Tracie takes on a pillar of her and Emily’s childhood: Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark. The sisters talk about what’s great (the soundtrack, the cinematography, Marion Ravenwood’s badassery), what’s not so great (the imperialism, the toxic masculinity, the lack of any women other than Marion), and what’s seriously inaccurate (the bulldozer archeological tactics, the history of the Ark of the Covenant, Marion’s ability to drink giant men under the table).

Listen as we try not to ruin another childhood favorite. Just watch out for snakes!
