Competing Spectacles by Tony Reinke, Free for CAPC Members
Reinke wants to help readers not be manipulated and enthralled by the spectacles of our media age. Instead, he shows that we see the greatest spectacle of all in the Cross.
In this episode of the CaPC Digest, Drew and last minute co-host Jonathan Clauson are joined by CaPC writer Val Dunham. The discussion centers around Val’s article, Solidarity, BBC Dad and her own reflections on the social media phenomenon. The conversation includes a recap of the video itself followed by a breakdown of the different corners of the internet reacting in different ways to a 2 min clip. Was it patriarchy on display? Was it dad panicking in a high pressure interview? All this, and a startling confession from Jonathan about his failure as a parent is in this episode of the Christ and Pop Culture Digest.
