Episode 37 - Guilty Pleasures

We’re back with episode 37, discussing all of our deepest, darkest, guiltiest pleasures. What is a guilty pleasure? Should we feel guilty for consuming media? What’s up with hate-watching? Is Missy truly the pettiest girl alive? All this and more, including a decidedly dark turn as we discuss the US presidential election.

  • Episode 26 - Romance

    We’re talking about romance in episode 26, including Gail Carriger’s Soulless and Outlander! How are romance and feminism related? Why is romance appealing to so many people? Does romance offer good representation of people of different genders and races? How can we diversify our reading habits? Also, dingledongs. 

    Warning: this episode is explicit! Romance often carries explicit themes along with it, so we didn’t censor our language and made full use of the freedom to swear. There’s also a short and vague discussion of sexual violence in Outlander.
