Pop Culture Detectives 28: The Crown

Podcast about Netflix's The Crown

This week we’re talking about Netflix’s latest pièce de resistance, The Crown. It’s the super high-budget, Golden Globe-nominated, royal bio-pic about Queen Elizabeth II. We discuss the many subtleties in this series, which we compare to Mad Men in both style and its ability to present inner turmoil rather than rely on a lot of external drama. We discuss the characters, the 1950s setting and how the show has had an impact on our views of history and present-day politics.
