These ladies for the win!

I love that I discovered this podcast! These gals have a great way of chatting about movies, without spoiling the entire thing, but still keeping the listener engaged! Can’t wait to see what they come up with in the future! A must listen!

Film, Feminism, and Fun

FINALLY a movie podcast that isn’t just a bunch of dudes talking over each other for an hour. I love the different genres that are covered, and although important issues are discussed (as the should be!), the overall vibe is fun. So glad this exists, it feels like spending time with friends!

Fun, forthright film discussions

I've enjoyed hearing Kristen Lopez on other podcasts, so I was excited to see that she and three other film critics (all woemn) started a new podcast! The discussions are engaging and energetic, the opinions are never sugar-coated, and the issues discussed range from the idiosyncratic to important. In just a few episodes, this has become one of my favorite film podcasts!
