They're not offering up the best products anymore and there are alternatives out there as people are finding out. And it's not just with films and series, it's also with things like games and music and so unless Hollywood, they get their stuff together, I think we're gonna be seeing Western media become a lot less prominent and we're gonna be seeing, K-pop continue to rise as well as Korean dramas, Japanese dramas. And it's gonna be a huge change from the previous, I guess, supremacy of the Western movies and TV shows where there's something like Game of Thrones, where the world is tuning in. It might not be like that in the future.” Top Takeaways:Hollywood is becoming increasingly disconnected from its audience and what they want to see.Companies like Disney pretend to be woke, but bow to the wills of their international clients if it means monetary gain.We have prenups for marriages that solve the solutions for money in case of divorce, but we have nothing in place to protect children from divorce.Schools have shifted from teaching children about sex from a purely biological standpoint to an increased focus on sexuality and gender.Show Notes: [0:00] Greg welcomes Lauren to the show [0:10] Lauren talks about her pregnancy and becoming a mom for the first time[2:00] Lauren talks about her new channel Mediaholic (https://www.youtube.com/c/Mediaholic) [4:00] The injection of politics, quotas, and diversity into entertainment and pop culture[9:20] Audiences getting tired of being lectured and “get woke go broke”[12:10] The hypocrisy of companies being “woke” in the West, but bowing to the wills of China and the Middle East[13:00] The decline in quality and accessibility of movies and television for larger audiences[16:10] Johnny Depp v.

The Book Club: Lord of the Flies by William Golding with Lauren Chen
The Book Club
In a world without consequences, are humans naturally good or is there darkness within us all? Lauren Chen sits with Michael Knowles to discuss the classic novel Lord of the Flies about a group of British schoolboys who become stranded on a deserted island. Free to behave however they please, the boys reject societal norms and devolve into depravity. If the human impulse for power and groupthink overtake reason, is there any hope for Western civilization?
