It’s a special episode where we decided to try and different medium and invite some friends over!
Nearly film length, but not a film, San Junipero is the iconic queer girl episode of Black Mirror, and to help us unpick this TV classic we invited Amber and Joyce from Gay Actually podcast to talk about it.
From the symbolism of the ocean to the on-the-nose perfection of the soundtrack to an extremely deep analysis of whether any of us would actually go to San Junipero post mortem, there’s a lot to cover for this relatively short story.
Along the way everyone gets distracted by a hamster, ableism in society gets called out, and we touch on the beauty of the story just like Kelly touches on (up) Yorkie’s leg in that scene in the rain, yeah you know the one.
