    0.06: Interview with Winnie Holzman

    Winnie Holzman!!!!!! Do we even need to say more?!?! In a (very very) special bonus episode, Joanna had the chance to talk to show creator Winnie Holzman about My So-Called Life, 25 years after it changed our lives forever. They discuss how the idea for the show came about, how Winnie so perfectly harnessed the inner monologue of Angela (and most of us...), the power of owning your sexuality and desire as a woman and a teenage girl, and so much more. They even both CRY AT THE END. *sob*

    Ahhhhhh, the amazing Vanessa Bayer is here to tell us all about her love for My So-Called Life, her stories about meeting Claire Danes, Jared Leto, and Wilson Cruz, her devastating career loss of the part of Wendy in the 7th grade production of Peter Pan, and her feelings on the musical stylings of 90210's Ray Pruit.

    1.16: Resolutions

    It is 1995... and no one told Jordan! As we enter into a brand new year we get an *incredible* gym scene between Rayanne and Sharon, a tutoring match up for the ages with the infamous Brain Krakow, and a stuffed bear making the rounds at Liberty High. On a more serious note, Rickie seeks support and safety after being left behind by his family, and finds some of it in Mr. Katimsky. We also have a heaping serving of Brad Pitt?? It's Episode 16: Resolutions!

10/10 flannels

This was maybe my favorite podcast of all time and I listen to a lot of tv show related podcasts. They’re funny and cool and go into all the details that let me remember the episodes without re-watching. And then I rewatched anyway because Kristin and Joanna made me feel all nostalgic. Wonderful podcast!

Fantastic podcast!

I love this podcast! It provides extensive, thoughtful commentary about a show that has always seemed wildly under appreciated. Thanks for the walk down memory lane, and for providing the motivation to do another rewatch of My So-Called Life!
