The Sleepover Club: How The Writers Strike Will Shape The Future Of Culture

Screenwriters are striking, celebrities are turning up on picket lines and creating viral moments, and all our fave shows are ceasing production. But the implications of a writers strike are bigger than the next series of Stranger Things being delayed. In this episode, Ione and Eden are diving into how past writers strikes have effected culture; from the dawn of reality tv, to a decline in media literacy, and whether the 2007 strike paved the way for Trump to become president.
