We’re back to talk about Missy’s completely intentional misinterpretation of Renfield, Merri’s Scream apologia, and more.
Episode 189 – The Amber Spyglass
Join us on our journey down further and further rungs of truth as we take a look at The Amber Spyglass, the third book in the His Dark Materials series by Philip Pullman and its corresponding season of the TV show.
WWBUT 92 – Snake Content (Snontent)
We’re back from ECCC and ready to talk about it! We’ve also got some remarkably hot takes for a WWBUT, including a discussion of How to Do Nothing by Jenny Odell, and Missy repeatedly apologizing for finding Our Flag Means Death to be merely a good show.
Episode 188 – Letterkenny
Insert your favorite catchphrase here, because we’re talking about Letterkenny, the hit Canadian comedy show featuring hicks, skids, hockey players, and more jokes per second than one person can possibly comprehend. We’re talking about small towns, masculinity, and the boundaries between good humor and bad taste.
We’ve got horror movies. We’ve got a discussion about the meaning of self care. We’ve got Natasha Lyonne season. What more could you ask for from what we’ve been up to?
Episode 187 – Mean Girls
We’re tackling one of the world’s most quotable movies—Mean Girls, which brought us wonders like ‘fetch,’ Glen Coco, and Rachel McAdams’ incredible pronunciation of the word ‘disgusting.’ Join us as we discuss the pressures of girlhood, the source and manifestation of meanness, and whether this film’s feminist values are all they’re cracked up to be.
It’s been a minute, so we’re back with a longer-than-usual What We’ve Been Up to episode!
Episode 186 – American Gods
This week, we’re tackling Neil Gaiman’s 2001 novel American Gods, and its TV adaptation! What’s so American about it? What’s so godlike about it? And is the adaptation worth it?
WWBUT 89 – Of Course the Fairies Come
After an unexpected absence, we’re back! What have we been up to in these long weeks away?
WWBUT 88 – Thirty, Flirty, and Fliving
Welcome to another WWBUT, in which we discuss dubious interpretations of the word “fun,” the tragedy of this season of The Great British Bake-Off, and Missy does an increasingly stressed-out speedrun of her feelings on Squid Game.
