    Cutthroat Island (w/Hannah Harrison)

    Cutthroat Island (w/Hannah Harrison)

    "Stop your chatter and say something Latin-ish." ☠️

    FEMALE LEAD GENRE MOVIE LET'S GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    Hannah once again brings a fabulous recommendation from her parents to the pod!

    With a death to rival darling Denethor of Gondor, and a lead who just happens to be a woman, Cutthroat Island has it's problems, sure (don't worry we fix them) but it's a must see for how refreshing it is.

    Should women get punched in movies? Are female lead movies good? All this and more ☠️

I love the concept of this podcast. There’s an obvious and specific niche, however the host does a great job of switching up things from topics to guests that keep listeners on their toes. I appreciate the authenticity and welcoming environment that radiates off of this pod as well. Cant wait to dive deeper into your content. 🙏🏻

Drew M Meyer ,

Great fun

Utterly charming host- her enthusiasm, humor, and rapport with her guests makes each listen enjoyable-regardless of the film.

I love listening to Emily and her fun guests chat about movies! They go into so much depth while giggling the whole way. It is a wonderful time each time I press play.
