Is Breaking Bad a Show About Angry White Men?

April 24, 2019

We're launching our new podcast series of social justice on screen with Eliana Cohen, breaking down one of the best shows of all time, Breaking Bad, as a predictive cultural event that is about angry middle-aged white men who feel that the world has been taken away from them. When Walter White learns that he has cancer, he resorts to violence, which only grows as the story moves forward. Yet still, we root for him because of he feels aggrieved that things are not the way he wanted them to be. Eliana is doing her Ph.D. in social psychology.
