For the fifty-eighth episode of The Pop Culture Lens podcast, Christopher Olson and CarrieLynn Reinhard are joined by friend of the podcast Kadee Whaley to discuss the classic 1990s sitcom, Frasier.
In this episode, they discuss the different representations of masculinity contained seen in the series, from the New Man of the ’90s to the American hegemonic man. This clash of masculinities fueled much of the series’ humor, but the clash also relates to current concerns with toxic masculinity, white liberalism, and intersectionality.
Primary editing on the episode was done by Jean-Michel Berthiaume, and the end song comes from the end credits for Frasier.
