The Action Points Podcast! Episode 122 – Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow

In this episode:

First up, we’re super sorry we’ve been away for a while. This episode was recorded quite a while ago, but a combination of hardware failures and incredibly busy weeks/weekends at work have pushed the podcast stuff aside for a while. We’re now back though! And we hope you enjoy the show :)

We chat about human hair and how it is treated in media. We talk about hair colour, hair styles, cultural connotations, stereotypes and how come you never see Cloud go shopping for hair gel in Midgar. We also talk about our enjoyment of Zootopia, and how it treats the topic of diversity and discrimination.  In our regular round up, Aaron played some A la carte, Dan’s been playing The Witness, Evan has been having PC problems with Dark Souls 3, and Jackson checks out a podcast and a book on mental health.
