15 – Clueless (with James Pascucci and Shannon Johnston)

By Sara Candela

This show explores the way teachers, students, and education are portrayed in movies, television, and pop culture in general.

In this episode we talk with two of Sara’s former students about one of the quintessential teen movies of our lifetimes. The layers of Clueless are so fun to unravel because of its smart, funny writing, and its memorable characters, but also because it tethers us to a unique time in teen cultural history – the 1990s. Join us as we dissect everything about this movie that makes us love Beverly Hills high school, and some things that make us loathe it.
