    The Nora Ephron Christmas Spectacular! with Ella Risbridger

    Nora Ephron is a writer and filmmaker whose fame was huge in her lifetime and has only snow-balled since her death in 2012. Now that her name is on t-shirts, her novel is an established classic, and she's even the subject of fictional renderings ('sup, Good Girls Revolt), is there more to the Ephron legacy than meets the eye? Caroline and Ella pick through her personal life, victories, failings, and many many famous friendships to get to the bottom of the following question: we LOVE Nora Ephron, but do we like her?

    Coyote Ugly with Hannah Woods

    Coyote Ugly with Hannah Woods

    How did a Bukowski-style piece published in 1997 by Elizabeth Gilbert in GQ magazine turn into the quintessential sleepover movie of the early noughties? Author Hannah Woods brings the 2000 movie Coyote Ugly to the garbage truck, and we discuss this baffling film that is nonetheless still stylistically perfect and so much fun to watch. What happened to Piper Perabo? Why does John Goodman get hit by a car, after we're teased his heart attack for SO LONG? And just how deep does all our noughties trauma go?

    The High Street with Lauren Bravo

    The High Street with Lauren Bravo

    Whether it's a baked potato in a M&S cafe, a Jane Norman shopping bag, or a limited-range of celebrity dresses at Topshop, there's nothing that gets our hearts racing or our wallets twitching like the high street. Fashion writer Lauren Bravo joins Caroline to talk about the nostalgia of the high street, the evolution of Christmas gift giving, the unique personalities of each shop (Warehouse is for cool girls who have long weekends in Berlin, end of) and the ever-changing world of retail.
    Lauren Bravo is the author of How To Break Up With Fast Fashion, What Would The Spice Girls Do? and has a novel coming in 2023.

    Julie & Julia with Fiona Zublin

    Julie & Julia with Fiona Zublin

    There is a very clear narrative on Julie & Julia, Nora Ephron's final feature film, and it's this: the Julia Child portions of the movie are heavenly, and the Julie Powell side of the movie is both infuriating and a drag. American Girl In Paris correspondent Fiona Zublin returns to the podcast to defend Amy Adams' performance but ends up bashing it just like everyone else. Still, for a movie that is so uneven, so confusing, and so curiously lacking in stakes... why is it so much fun to watch, and why do we cry by the end?

    The Word 'Like' with Amanda Montell

    The Word 'Like' with Amanda Montell

    Young women's use of the word 'like' has been parodied for decades, but where did it come from, why do we use it, and why is it, like, so goddamn useful? Linguist and host of Sounds Like A Cult podcast Amanda Montell discusses the versatility of one of the most despised words in the English language, primarily because it's associated with teenage girls. We talked about female voices, how we perceive public speech, and the mystery of Elizabeth Holmes. Amanda Montell is the author of WordSlut and Cultish.

    Titanic with Janina Matthewson

    Titanic with Janina Matthewson

    When Titanic first came out, it made history for the epic scale of James Cameron's filmmaking. But like the ship itself, its reputation started to capsize. The more the movie was embraced by young women and girls, the more it was ridiculed as garbage. Caroline and author Janina Matthewson discuss the legacy of the movie, Rose as a protagonist, the camp factor of Billy Zane, what Christopher Nolan is missing by being terrified of giving his scripts a 'camp pass', why Jack needs to die, and why there will be NO DOOR CHAT on this podcast.
    Janina Matthewson is the author of You Feel It Just Below The Ribs and the creator of Within the Wires. She is also the co-host of History is Sexy.
