    13: SIXTEEN CANDLES (1984)

    "I can't believe that I gave my panties to a geek." The wives are finally diving into the patron saint of teen movies, John Hughes' directorial debut, SIXTEEN CANDLES.

    This week BJ talks about the rite of passage for Chicagoland teens experiencing John Hughes cinema, Harmony has a full breakdown after drawing a parallel from the treatment of Long Duk Dong to her own family's treatment of immigrants, and both have to grapple with the normalization of rape culture present in what is considered one of the most classic teen girl movies ever made.

    12: Bring It On (2000)

    "I transferred from Los Angeles. Your school has no gymnastics team. This is a last resort. *clap* " In honor of the iconic cheerleading classic's 20th anniversary, we're flipping onto the blue carpet of BRING IT ON!

    This week BJ gives Harmony a crash course in the world competitive spirit sports, Harmony realizes that this movie is about way, way deeper issues than just cheerleading, and we read from Gabrielle Union's interview in Vogue about the staying power of Isis and the representation of Black characters in teen movies.

    11: Sydney White (2007) w/ Vanessa Guerrero

    "If only there was a place where a superficial, materialistic b*tch could fit in... Oh, wait. There is" Fresh off the heels of the latest U.S. election, we're diving into baby's first socialism movie, the Amanda-Bynes-as-Snow-White flick SYDNEY WHITE (2007).

    The wives are joined with comedian, co-host of the Kicking and Screaming podcast, and host of El Rey's 'Top 5,' Vanessa Guerrero, to talk about collegiate life as an introduction to dismantling the screwed up world of rigged democracies, the signs you might be dating a young Republican, whether or not we should trust angry white men with blogs, and embracing your inner dork.

    **At the time of recording, Vanessa was using a different last name. We were given explicit permission to make the ridiculous sound edit of an Eddie Guerrero ring announcement to highlight the professional use of her maiden name.**

    10: The Craft (1996)

    "We are the weirdos, mister." We're closing out sp0o0oky season with a bang, by traveling back to the 90s and examining the beloved witch classic, THE CRAFT (1996).

    Sisterhood of the Traveling Tripp Pants, this is not. This week your favorite wives talk about the dangers of groupthink, the communal misremembering of what this film is actually about, and the absolutely iconic aesthetic of Fairuza Balk's Nancy Downs. Strap in, friends. This one gets pretty intense.

    09: THE FINAL GIRLS (2015)

    "Today's the anniversary of her death. At least I get to see her. Even if she is being chased by a psycho with a machete." Week four of sp0o0oky season is a look at one of the legitimately most underrated horror films of the last decade, THE FINAL GIRLS (2015)

    The week your favorite wives talk about the importance of writing your own storyline, punchlines with progressive roots, the deconstruction of slasher films, and embracing your inner archetype.

    08: CASPER (1995)

    "If my mom's a ghost, did she forget about me?" Week three of sp0o0oky season is all about the friendliest ghost you know, and the source of plenty of pre-teen heart eye fawning, CASPER (1995).

    The week your favorite wives talk about the pro-therapy messaging of Dr. Harvey, learning how to process grief and death as a child, and why films like CASPER are so important for teaching children how to navigate their negative emotions.

Super Cute And Tons Of Fun

BJ and Harmony are the perfect hosts in this funny, engaging, raw, and analytical podcast. The show perfectly blends a small dose of rosy retrospection with contemporary readings of pop cultural icons that may or may not be a little dated. Two very enthusiastic thumbs up. Fine holiday fun.
