Steve and Steve get to hang out with Marlène Ramírez-Cancio, co-founder and co-director of Fulana, a Latina satire collective whose videos have been shown internationally at film festivals, museums, and universities, and whose members lead satire and parody workshops for emerging artists.

Marlene talks about how satire can successfully be used to change the world through critical analysis, community-building, undermining authority and a lot more, and about the differences between parody, irony, sarcasm and satire. She shares some amazing, thought-provoking examples from around the world about immigration, colonialism and more.
