TASHA ROBINSON, film critic at The Dissolve, and formerly of The
A.V. Club, joins me to talk about the road that led to her becoming
one of the best in the industry. During our talk, we also touch on
Bob Hoskins' passing, the Star Wars Episode 7 casting announcement,
Tasha's VHS film education, the odd jobs she had just out of
college, publication editing, aggregate scoring with Metacritic and
Rotten Tomatoes, misogyny and trolling on comment boards (with
focus on Anita Sarkeesian and "Feminist Frequency"), the state of
women in film, Paul Greengrass' "Captain Phillips," what is wrong
(and right) with her colleague, Scott Tobias, and we end on her
coverage of the Tribeca Film Festival 2014. It's a jam-packed
conversation, and I know you'll have a great time listening!
