Manage episode 288071334 series 2117437
The pandemic quarantine has fueled new hobbies, and one of ours is the British Monarchy related content: THE Oprah interview, all four seasons of The Crown, and way too many biographies, documentaries and diaries (from the people who experienced it first hand). This episode, we are joined by a fellow unofficial “scholar” of the British Monarchy and related tea, stage director Mo Zhou. We start by unpacking the interview, then shining a light on the outmoded rules and values of the family and the damaging effects to the people within, and collectively ponder where tradition ends and modernity begins for the British Monarchy: the Firm, a political power, and a culture phenomenon that happens to take the shape of a family.
