SnarkNotes is a classic "Keli-Alice mess around" where literary analysis meets pop culture references with a side of snark and a bottle of wine. Since the beginning of their friendship, Keli and Alice have found themselves off in the corner of every movie or wine night intensely discussing a random topic that no one else seems to care about. SnarkNotes was born when they decided to foist their literature and pop culture related ramblings onto the world. So please enjoy this monthly podcast where the hosts discuss everything from the merits of a socially awkward Mr. Darcy to why finding a boyfriend with a crow-and-smoke aesthetic is so difficult. Topics will range from literature to television to movies, but the nerdiness and sarcasm will be constant. Spoilers abound!

    S3 E8: Disclosure and Trans Representation

    S3 E8: Disclosure and Trans Representation

    Trans rights are human rights. In our latest episode we talk about Disclosure: Trans Lives on Screen and discuss the importance of trans representation. We also rant about J.K. Rowling's transphobia. (Because we had to.) Word of warning: our audio got a little messed up when we were recording. (Even more than normal.) We still don't know what happened, but we're blaming J.K. Rowling. She's a dark wizard.

    S3 E6: Fictional Female Friendships

    S3 E6: Fictional Female Friendships

    More often than not pop culture fails at its depiction of female friendships. The creators of Sex and the City and Girls want us to view their characters as "BFFs" and "Squad Goals", but don't seem to know what real friendships actually entail. Join Keli and Alice as they talk about good and bad examples of fictional female friendships and ask that age-old, unanswered question: why are these people even friends?

    S3 E5: You

    S3 E5: You

    The time has come to talk about You. (Not you, specifically. Sorry! But You the little-watched Liftetime series turned Netflix hit.) Over the course of two seasons, You has crafted a fascinating phycological thriller that turns the typical boy meets girl romance on its head. Join Keli and Alice as they talk about all the things that make this show compelling, including Penn Badgley's willingness to lean into his Gossip Girl roots, and his refusal to let the internet romanticize his character.
