SXSW 2023

The Problematic Fave Podcast


A live recording of the PROBLEMATIC FAVE podcast where host Dino-Ray Ramos will welcome a filmmaker, actor, creator, activist or cultural figure to discuss a film or TV episode from the past of the guest’s choosing that is acclaimed, celebrated and considered a classic. They will watch the selected work before each episode and then do a deep dive and unpack how the film/series was enjoyable in the past, but upon revisiting there are details that are racist, misogynistic, homophobic, transphobic, and wildly cringeworthy when it comes to marginalized voices.

Additional Supporting Materials


  1. To celebrate different perspectives of acclaimed films and TV series that weren't necessarily created for people from marginalized communities.
  2. By revisiting these acclaimed movies and TV series we unpack the importance of inclusion, representation and equity in the film and TV industry.
  3. To realize it's OK to simultaneously like a TV series or film while addressing its problems so that we never make the same mistakes again.
