These ladies are like hanging out with your bffs!
Can we be friends?
I just love this podcast! It’s exposed me to film adaptations that I didn’t know about (or didn’t expect to like) and strikes such a great balance of discussing them both critically/intellectually and from a more personal perspective. This feels like the way I want to be able to discuss JA with my friends. Keep it up, ladies!
I want to thank you ladies for broadening my appreciation for the nuances of the different adaptations. I knew I like some and not others ~ now I can articulate why that is based on the various insights y’all have provided. Well done! Now I must go and ‘comport’ myself...
