What ‘Anne With An E’ fans taught us about cultural politics

THE BIG STORY | posted Friday, Aug 21st, 2020

In today’s Big Story podcast, Anne With An E is a reimagining of Lucy Maude Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables tales. It ran for three seasons, and then got cancelled. And the fans took it personally.

This isn’t a conversation about Anne With An E, though, it’s a conversation about what happens when popular culture becomes a political identity.
