The Debatable Podcast


May 6, 2014

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!
