About the series In a recent interview with NOW Magazine, programmer Anthony Oliveira summed up the series: “Dumpster Raccoon is not just the name, it is my ethos,” he says. “It’s how I describe what I do when someone asks. I think my work as a writer or culture critic or whatever is that I compulsively forage through our culture trash to figure out what it is, how it works, why we discarded it, what it can teach us. Sharing pop culture has always been one of the main ways I express affection, and the series has grown out of that: ‘I love you; here’s some shiny garbage.’”
