in my main podcast rotation

I reposted to many episodes of this show! similarly to how one might rewatch their favorite movie. I love their takes and recaps.

MY FIANCÉE

I need 10-15 more episodes on Titanic alone

Smart, witty, entertaining

These women are incredibly intelligent, HILARIOUS, they have great banter with each other and their guests. they give me the language to explain to friends or randoms at the bar why movies are bad (when applicable) and how our entertainment has perpetuated the stereotypes and marginalization of women and minorities. It’s educational and so so fun. They’re the best and you should listen to all 500 episodes
