    Hocus Pocus (1993)

    Hocus Pocus (1993)

    The sacred All Hallows Eve is only a few short days away, and is there any better movie to watch to get you in the Halloween spirit than this one? No really, we are legit asking if there’s a better movie cause the Betties have a lot of questions this time around about the so-called “iconic” film, Hocus Pocus, one being...what the heck was up with the c-r-e-e-p-y big brother little sister dynamic in this film? Not to mention, is this entire movie just about three women wanting a better skincare routine? Mercury Rx was hitting some of us pretty hard around the recording of this ep, but we trust we were not alone! 


    Starring: Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kathy Najimy, Thora Birch, Omri Katz

    The Craft (1996)

    The Craft (1996)

    We kick off our Spooky Scary season with a 90’s cult classic! A movie that dare we say inspired the likes of Charmed, Buffy, and Sabrina, bringing the occult into the mainstream in a way that shaped us all! Because let’s be honest, witches and vampire slayers are bad AF and were basically the millennial teen's intro to feminism. There was a lot to cover in this one including some pretty dark themes, but we certainly entered our podcast circle with perfect love and perfect trust. We also collectively agreed that the pencil spinning scene is still the coolest sh*t ever. 


    We hope you missed us because this is our longest episode to date :)


    Enjoy, and blessed be! 


    Trigger warning: Self harm is a theme in this film and we discuss it (briefly) on the ep around 1:59:00. 


    Starring: Robin Tunney, Fairuza Balk, Rachel True, Neve Campbell

    Romy and Michele's High School Reunion (1997)

    Well, well well, we have reached the end of our extensive Boss Bitches season and we can safely say that was SPECTACULAR. Don’t you love how we can just say that to each other and know we’re not being conceited? 13 episodes, 13 great films, endless great times! Thanks for sticking with us throughout, we hope you had as much fun as we did on this wild ride! We end this glorious season with an age-old favorite from our childhood and hopefully yours too, the one and only Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion! If you’ve never seen it, watch it, and know that we are jealous that you are about to experience the joy of watching it for the first time. Tune in to hear us discuss this epic cult film at length as well as Jessica’s spot-on Mira Sorvino impression. Other topics include Romy and Michele fashion, the unparalleled  excellence of Janeane Garofalo as Heather Mooney, and the story of our very own ten-year high school reunion (that none of us attended, lolz), you don’t wanna miss this one. In other news….SEASON FOUR is coming soon biotches!!!


    Stay safe and have a Romy and Michele day!

It’s like eavesdropping on someone else’s sleepover in a good way

I like it a lot.

Love this podcast!

What’s not to enjoy? Rad women discussing rad movies from my childhood. It’s great to see 90s movies get some love again (and critiques, where it’s now needed). Such a fun time!
