The Wedding Hashers with Marc Alterman
If you are planning to get married in New York, you might be lucky enough to have some surprise guests in your wedding pictures. The Wedding Hashers are a group of runners whorun past the Brooklyn Bridge andtake pictures with as many weddings and recently married couples as possible. But don’t worry about them ruining your wedding aesthetic! The runners wear custom made tuxedo running shirts, so they’ll fit right in! Marc Alterman and his fellow Wedding Hashers join us today to share their experiences running into couples and taking pictures.
Equal Media Representation with Nancy Yuen
Remember the backlash that came when Disney announced they cast a black woman as Ariel in their live-action remake of “The Little Mermaid?” This isn’t the first or the last time the issue of diversity and race in the media has trended on social media. In 2015 and 2016, we had #OscarsSoWhite when all 20 nominees for lead and supporting role awards were white. Last August was #AsianAugust with the release of “Crazy Rich Asians.” So why is this question of diversity and inclusion in the media such a hot topic? Why is it so important to have equal representation in the media? Nancy Yuen, a sociologist and pop culture expert, joins us to explain how the lack of diversity in media affects us as viewers.
