    Season 2 Episode 13 - The Square Shaped Room

    Season 2 Episode 13 - The Square Shaped Room

    This week it's all about style and interior design. Lou wants to redecorate his living room as a surprise for his wife while she's away at a fat farm (yeah, we know). But he can't do it alone, so he enlists Mary's help in finding a designer, and she just so happens to know the perfect person for the job — Rhoda.

    Styles clash and needs aren't perfectly met, but the simplest solutions turn out to be the best fixes.

    Meanwhile, we chat about ... well, interior design. And it wouldn't be an episode of After All if we didn't toss gender roles, socially-imposed stereotypes, and a whole lot of cultural dissection into the mix.

    Season 2 Episode 12 - Is A Friend In Need

    Season 2 Episode 12 - Is A Friend In Need

    This week's episode, originally recorded *checks watch* last June(?!), definitely reads differently in our current climate.

    Rhoda is unceremoniously fired from her job and spends a week loafing around, mildly depressed, on Mary's couch. Mary tries to be encouraging but winds up not pushing her at all to find a new job, whereas Phyllis leans into the tough love approach with little self-awareness. In the end, she finds the perfect job and everything's great!

    Meanwhile, the conversation in this particularly digressive episode, Ariel talks about the life-changing impact of losing a job that crushes your soul, the scary reality of working as a full-time freelancer in our current (read, 2019) economy, and how hard it can be to bounce back from being fired. Oh, Ariel also "guilts" Silvia over an idiom.

    Season 2 Episode 11 - The Six-And-A-Half Year Itch

    Season 2 Episode 11 - The Six-And-A-Half Year Itch

    It only took us 9 months but we're back with some banked episodes from last year, before ... well, everything.

    This week, Lou finds out something unsettling about his favourite son-in-law — he was planning on cheating on his wife, Lou's daughter, and having an affair. This episode discusses the various issues with toxic masculinity of the day, including the presentation of adultery as a kind of right of passage and proof of machismo. We talk about sex, mutual pleasure, and so much more!

    Season 2 Episode 9 - And Now, Sitting In For Ted Baxter

    Season 2 Episode 9 - And Now, Sitting In For Ted Baxter

    And we're back!

    After what felt like forever, but was really seven months, we are back! Unfortunately, life just got in the way at the tail end of last year and the beginning of this one, so we had to take a bit of a personal leave of absence. But now we're back with a missing episode!

    Back in November it turned out we were missing episode 9. Something went wrong with the recording, and more than half of it was just gone. So, now we've gone back and re-recorded that episode for you!

    Episode 9 "And Now, Sitting In For Ted Baxter" exposes the truth about why Ted never takes vacation: he knows he sucks at his job and doesn't want to be replaced. What should be a beautiful teaching moment for him just seems to reinforce his more negative traits, but we're along for the ride to dig into it.

    Along the way we touch on tokenism - in our cases both as women and as Jewish people - poorly-chosen comments from the Editor-in-Chief of the Atlantic, abortion bans, and what happens when only men are allowed in the room. There's a lot to chew on this week, so tune in, sit back, and enjoy!

    Season 2 Episode 10 - Don't Break The Chain

    Season 2 Episode 10 - Don't Break The Chain

    This week is all about superstition! Lou sends a chain letter to everyone in the WJM office, and Mary is tempted to trash the thing and break the chain. Lou, however, guilts her into keeping up with it. Through this, she has the great misfortune of being reconnected with a man from hers - and Rhoda's - past: Armand Linton!

    Through Mr. Linton's heinous codependence, we discuss bad dates, the many fish (and 14 billion pounds of trash) in the sea, the do's and don'ts of dating etiquette, and much more.

    Season 2 Episode 8 - Thoroughly Unmilitant Mary

“Julia”

Oops!
I’m surprised you didn’t dig deeper into 60s
TV & bring up “Julia”, a ground-breaking, Emmy Award-winning show starring beautiful African -American singer/actor, Diahann Carrol. It premiered in 1968 & ran for 3 years. “Julia” is a widowed nurse with a 5-year old boy ( Marc Copage) working in a hospital. It was a situation comedy but many of her problems were typical for single, working mothers. She was the FIRST in many ways!
I was not a sit-com watcher during these years; I was living with my parents, attending junior college in No. Cal, working part-time & immersed into my classes, boys & protesting US involvement in Vietnam War. When I did watch TV, my fave shows were “ Laugh-in”, “Carol Burnett” & “ The Smothers Brothers”.
I did enjoy MTM Show when it came on, though, & loved the character, cast & writing.
A few years later, I was a SFSU drama major & had my apt. in SF, living the dream!

Too PC

I like the culture comparisons, but you don’t really talk about the show itself.

Really well done

I look forward to more episodes. I was a 6 year old girl when this show began . I remember the characters, song and opening sequence but don’t remember specific episodes because I was too young. I hope you continue with more podcasts!
