    This week, Sarah and Kaley discuss the many pleasures - and pitfalls - of this classic 1990s animated movie. It's full of classist, misogynistic, and condescending undertones, but its songs sure do slap! We'll discuss both the good and the bad!

I LOVE this podcast.

Every episode is so great and i look forward to listening every week. I especially love the latest epi with Samantha Bitty where you talked about tinder profiles. It was hilarious and oh so relatable.
