Episode 158: The queerness of the narrative featuring Alex Malcolm

Last updated on June 19, 2023

We continue our pride month extravaganza with the inimitable Alex Malcolm, writer and producer, who joins us to discuss AMC’s Interview with the Vampire. Alex discusses season 1 of the series, getting into why it’s a successful reimagining of the source material, why it speaks to us emotionally, and what the show has to say. We also talk about racism, vampires and historical Black narratives, representing the South, intimate partner violence in queer communities, and so much more. We can’t wait for Season 2!! This is a fun one, but there are definitely some very heavy moments, so take care of yourself, friends, and heed the trigger warning below.

Trigger warning: discussions of racism, queer intimate partner violence, manipulation, abuse, sexual assault, and rape throughout
