    #297: Fine Wholesome Fun // The Baby-Sitters Club (2020)

    #297: Fine Wholesome Fun // The Baby-Sitters Club (2020)

    The Adaptation hosts discuss the characterization, modernization, and representation in the 2020 Netflix series, The Baby-Sitters Club.
    Question of the Week: Do you want a season 2? What would you like to see covered in that season (doesn’t have to be something from the books)?

    **Disclaimer** Kendyl uses "queer" as a catch-all term to describe Ann M. Martin in this episode since she doesn't know precisely how she identifies. In hindsight, we realize that some are not comfortable with this term and it should not have been used for a someone who has not first used it for themselves.

Intelligent and entertaining discussion of our favorite books and movies

I stumbled across Adaptation a few weeks ago and have already enjoyed probably 20 of their podcasts. Normally with movie adaptation discussions you either get overzealous fangirl reviews that are perhaps less objective or you get totally negative reviews ripping the films to shreds. The staff at Adaptation present mature, but fun discussions about book and movie themes, character and world development. I really look forward to seeing what's to come.

Unstructured

I looked specifically for podcasts that discuss film adaptations, and this one seems to be the most prolific. My issue with this one, though, is that it drags on. I had to sit through a lot of chit chat before any real analysis revealed itself. Each podcast should probably be cut down by 20 minutes in order to be remotely appealing.

Where are episodes?

I listened to the "Winter's Tale" epsidoe and it was great. But why are there no epsiodes available on the itunes feed?
