    The C-Word: Amy Winehouse Part 1

    Lena is back with Alissa Bennet to share another episode of their new podcast, The C-Word! It’s a chat show about women history loves to call “crazy.”
    Recognized for her singular voice and iconic beehive, Amy Winehouse became a near-instant music legend as well as a tabloid mainstay in the 2000s. On the 10th anniversary of her death, Lena and Alissa discuss the singer-songwriter’s precocious talent, her rebellious teen years, and the beginnings of a bad romance that would fuel her later work as well as her addictions.

    The C-Word: Sean Young

    The C-Word: Sean Young

    It's a special episode of The C-Word! With each episode, Lena Dunham and Alissa Bennett take you on an historical deep-dive into the life of a woman society dismissed by calling her mad, sad, or just plain bad. Join them for a rich, hilarious, and heartbreaking look into exactly what it means when we call a woman “crazy”.

    In this episode: Sean Young got her big break when she was cast in Blade Runner at 22-years old. But after rumblings that she was “difficult to work with,” and troubling romantic rumors, her reputation plummeted. Lena and Alissa trace Sean’s career through her plea to play Catwoman to some ill-fated talk show appearances to Hollywood outcast.
