Romance Is Dada: Deconstructing The Bachelor and RTV Representation with Lita Brillman



This week Dom atones for sins in his past lives by talking about The Bachelor for an hour while sounding like he's dying from the plague. Luckily he's in good company, as Lita Brillman takes a break from dragging Jessica/Cody fans to school him and you on The Bachelor's complicated relationship with race and gender as well as the wider issue of representation on reality TV. Listen below, here, or on iTunes here.

For more material, see Lita's piece on Jerri Manthey and some of her other writing. If you're interested in reading more about these topics in the context of The Bachelor, a recent Longreads reading list can be found here.
