    BYE BYE LIL SEBASTIAN, YOU'RE 5000 CANDLES IN THE WIND BONANZA

    (Full warning in advance - we were meant to have a very special guest this episode. Heartbreakingly, technology failed us. Plz listen anyway x) 
    This month we debut our first (and most likely LAST) LIVE EPISODE to a crowd of about 5 people at Pilot Light TV Festival in Manchester! We celebrate 10 years of Parks and Recreation, TV's most wholesome show. We pick our fav characters and lines, bemoan the fate of Chris Pratt (never get Hot, folks), and perform a musical tribute to Lil Sebastian. 
    PLUS segues into the wonderful world of Wayne Rooney's Twitter, Grace's attachment to sitcoms where people are nice to each other, white people's reactions to ABBA songs, an analysis of the birth of millennial humour and a tribute to Sarah's lost water bottle.

    SELENA BIRTHDAY BASH BIDI BIDI BOM BOM BONANZA

    SELENA BIRTHDAY BASH BIDI BIDI BOM BOM BONANZA

    This month, we're joined by not one but TWO real life special guests (Kelli Weston and Tasha Kappler) to celebrate the birthday of the queen of Tejano music and red lipstick, SELENA! 

    Kelli and Tasha pick their three favourite Selena songs and we chat about why we love her so much, our favourite scenes from the 1997 film, her long-lasting cultural impact, and if it's ever okay to laugh at Yolanda Saldivar memes. Plus, we try to convince our guests that Valentina is the perfect person to play Selena in a remake of the film, and in a bewildering segue, Grace explains the British national anthem Charmaine by Plan B to our international guests. Make sure to stay tuned until the bitter end, because we have EXCITING NEWS about our next episode!! 

    TASHA'S FAV SELENA SONGS

     Como La Flor

     Si Una Vez 

    Que Creias (live version ft. Selena's leather trousers) 

    KELLI'S FAV SELENA SONGS

     Tu Solo Tu

     No Me Queda Mas

     El Chico Del Apartamento 512  

    SARAH'S FAV SELENA SONG (because she only knows two) 

    Bidi Bidi Bom Bom 

    GRACE'S FAV SELENA SONG 

    God's Child (ft. David Byrne)

    REYLO AND BENDEMPTION WITH DANI FROM THE REBEL ORDER PODCAST BONANZA

    REYLO AND BENDEMPTION WITH DANI FROM THE REBEL ORDER PODCAST BONANZA

     I regret to inform you that Grace Barber-Plentie is dead, murdered by the thief she hired to steal the coaxium shipment—her friend, Tobias Beckett.



    Since Sarah alone survived, she recruited Dani (@cardiganvixen) from the Rebel Order Podcast to put together a crew for a big shot gangster/talk Star Wars. In what Sarah planned to be an hour-long episode, she and Dani dive into Reylo (shipping Rey and Kylo Ren/Ben Solo), Bendemption (the redemption of Ben Solo) and how those two concepts will tie into and rectify what came before it. 



    There’s plenty of love for The Last Jedi (aka the greatest Star Wars movie of all time), a lil bit of prequel talk, a lil bit of original trilogy talk, and plenty of giggling about Ben Solo’s hot bod.



    Since this episode was recorded very late in the evening, Sarah’s brain wasn’t working. She forgot to mention that she thinks Ben and Rey will help fulfil Leia’s desire to liberate planets living in oppression (read Leia, Princess of Alderaan and Bloodline, folks!), and from leaked photos, we can see refugees being rescued and presumably recruited to join the fight against the First Order—it will give all of these “nobodies” a voice.

    LOVE FADES, BUT SHREK IS FOREVER VALENTINE'S SHREKTACULAR WITH NATHAN MA BONANZA

    LOVE FADES, BUT SHREK IS FOREVER VALENTINE'S SHREKTACULAR WITH NATHAN MA BONANZA

    We held Nathan Ma (@nathaninberlin on Twitter) at gunpoint and made him discuss Shrek, the most romantic franchise of all time.  In this Very Special Valentine's Edition of You Oughta Know, Nathan guides us through the notion of Shrek as an allegorical "other" and the movie's significance on and beyond release, Sarah has some exclusive insight from Steve Harwell (lead singer of Smash Mouth) that expands upon the meme mythos of Smash Mouth's hit single, "All-Star", and Grace details just how Shrek-adjacent her career has been.

    RUPAUL'S DRAG RACE ALL STARS SEASON 4 ELEGANZA EXTRAVAGANZA BONANZA

    RUPAUL'S DRAG RACE ALL STARS SEASON 4 ELEGANZA EXTRAVAGANZA BONANZA

    Welcome to the first official episode of future hit podcast, You Oughta Know.  Part one was recorded in December when we both had the flu, but we powered through for the Drag Race content you so desperately desire and won't abandon at a bus stop. In this well-produced episode, we discuss Drag Race as a phenomenon in general, how it entered and influenced our lives, and its issues in regards to race and gender. Then we shallow dive into the first episode of All Stars 4 and conclude with an overview of the season, focusing on Episode 5.  We hope you learn lots from this show, like the names of Wayans family members.

Listening to the podcast has given me so much joy and renewed interest in Star Wars. Currently listening to the Bendemption episode right now and I am crying tears from laughter. 10/10 love this podcast and will continue to listen.
