Intelligent, scholarly & from a female perspective.
Intelligent, scholarly & from a female perspective. Greatly enjoyed your podcast on the Alien franchise. Hoping you might cover some David Lynch in the future too. Great work & thanks for your work in this deeply interesting area.
We get it, you’re woke
I mostly enjoy their scholarly discussion but the “We’re so woke” ness gets annoying.
I really want to like this podcast but one of the hosts is CONSTANTLY going “mmhmm... MMHMM...Mmmm...MMMHHHMMMMM!” Like, either say actual words or just let the other person talk, it’s so distracting.
