Promising Young Podcast #4 - Girls Just Want to Not Get Assaulted
A mini-pod dedicated to Emerald Fennell's blistering revenge fairytale, Promising Young Woman. In this episode we discuss the real big bad of the film: rape culture.
I’ve loved Anna ever since hearing her review on the Suspiria remake on The Evolution of Horror. I am so happy she now has her own podcast. She’s thoughtful, intelligent and offers great insight and enthusiasm on the horror genre and it’s intersection with feminism. I’m so happy to finally be hearing different voices speak on horror, the world does not need any more horror podcasts from lame misogynistic dudes. So grateful for this podcast, Anna is the best!
Great content, wonky audio
Love love love the show! The audio is a bit weird though. I was listening to the new Fear Street episodes while driving and the level difference between the host and the guest are so dramatically different that I had to ride the levels to try to not get my ears pierced by bursts of laughter. I thought it’d get better after the first episode but it was the same. I hope this improves. I’d love to keep listening. Seriously great content.
Makes me see films in a new light
My favorite eps are the ones where I’ve seen the movie and the pod makes me see it in a new light—“The Autopsy of Jane Doe” episode with Louise Blain is straight up a masterpiece. The podcasters are generally a little younger than I am too so even when they cover something I personally don’t have a lot of patience for, like a Ryan Murphy show, it’s still worth learning about what they take from it. (Although sometimes there’s a funny frisson when a no-nonsense critic like Kang comes up against a movie like The Love Witch.)
