S2E9 - Joseph's Revenge

Joseph's brothers show up in Egypt. Now Joseph has the power, and he's going to use it.

The Joseph cycle continues. Now Joseph is the second most powerful person in the known world, and his brother's have fallen on hard times. When they show up in Egypt to beg for food, they don't recognize Joseph, but he sure does recognize them. He decides to have some fun at their expense, but he can't fully hide that the sight of his family moves him to tears. Once again, Sue is well-versed due to Misters Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice.

J, David, and Sue discuss how this story brings up our adult queer kid feelings of familial rejection and complicated familial love. How does our relationship to our families change as we age, and as power shifts because of circumstances or simply the passage of time?
