On this episode of Back Matter our hosts discuss the line between art and artist when an artist commits acts or espouses beliefs with you disagree with morally.

WARNING: On this episode our conversation includes the frank discussion of sexual and domestic assault, as well as other topics which might be distressing to some listeners. None of the discussion is graphic, but if hearing about these topics is troubling for you, we recommend you listen to a different episode of the show.
