Gilmore Girls: A roundtable with Anna Leszkiewicz and Zarina Muhammad

November 24, 2020

This week we’re hosting a special roundtable on everyone’s favourite mother-daughter duo, The Gilmore Girls. We’re joined by critic Zarina Muhammad, who is one half of art collective The White Pube, and Anna Leszkiewicz, Culture Editor at the New Statesman.

 

Together we discuss Gilmore Girls’ timeless appeal and its second life as a streaming sensation. We’ll also look back at how the show was received at the time as well as the grittier themes of class and privilege tucked beneath its cozy exterior.
