    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.

This podcast will reduce your basic IQ. I listened to the crazy Lena explain how she wanted to experience an abortion. I wanted to experience a suicide after listening to it...
