·40· Frozen


Hey sister, go sister, soul sister, snow sister ❄️ 

In our first ever clean* episode, sisters Helen and Valerie talk about Disney’s 2013 Frozen. Our special “guest Matt” will melt you like an Olaf by an open fire.

*an earnest attempt to not say F**k and S**t

·39· Snatched


Helen and Valerie are once again joined by their mother, Karen Wurl, for this belated Mother’s Day treat. The three of them, now fully recovered from the emotional trauma of watching last year’s Mother’s Day (may you rest, sweet Garry), venture to Venture Cinema to watch 2017’s comedy caper Snatched.

·37· Bridesmaids


Here we are, week 3 of our month long Never-A-Bride spectacular. It’s a little on the nose, but we’re talking about Bridesmaids. Not as divisive as current U.S. politics, but Paul Feig manages to cause turbulence once again. That reminds me, “There’s a colonial woman on the wing, there’s something they’re not telling us!”

·36· My Best Friend’s Wedding


My Best Friend’s Wedding is the second film in our four-week bonus, antithetical bridal month bonanza. That’s right, every Monday in June we’re going to deliver fresh cut podcast bouquets straight to your internet door. This is our vow* to you.

 

*inconspicuous details or conditions printed in an agreement or contract, what I’m saying is “we’ll probably honor this vow”

·35· Picture Perfect

It’s 1997 again so remember, if you’ve got to make a call, we brought our flip-phone.

Helen and Valerie are joined by the divine and consummate Erin Gambrill of the Ladies Who Library podcast. We answer this burning question, “can you write a super bowl campaign and like a boy at the same time?”

·34· Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion


20 years ago, two impressionable young women walked into a movie theater to watch Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion and they pretty much haven’t stopped talking about it since.
Seeing as you might not have 20 years to listen to them talk about the film, they graciously condensed their discussion to just under 2 hours.

Now, would you excuse me? I cut my foot before and my shoe is filling up with blood.

·33· Man Up


Your FiLM podcast hosts are not completely on board with the much dated and gender awkward title of our thirty-third episode, Man Up.
However, what they do like is the charming, thoughtful, and deliberate screenplay found in between the title page and FADE OUT.
Tess Morris sought out to make a clever and enjoyable romantic comedy and we think she succeeded. And to ‘one up’ her Man Up movie, she cast Simon Pegg—making a sturdy gamble that a few men would likely watch along as well.

·32· Intolerable Cruelty

Give it up for the one and (likely) only time we’ll get to discuss a Coen brother’s film on Falling in Love Montage.
We like to stay flexible, and this is a very comfortable stretch for us as we, and special guest Malcolm Nygard, have a rich and uproarious conversation about Intolerable Cruelty.

Are you asking yourself where you have heard Malcolm’s intoxicating voice before? Maybe you recall it from our new bumper? (Psst! We joined a podcast network earlier this month!) Or maybe you are already a fan of or subscriber to the Comrade Radio Network? If you aren’t already, you can hear more from Malcolm on his show Apoc Radio and the Comrade Radio Podcast.

·31· Spring Clipisode

In this, our third clip episode, you’ll hear bits and pieces from Ghostbusters, Jane Eyre, Bridget Jones’s Baby, Crank, While You Were Sleeping, and Overboard.

I feel it is only fair to remind you that we absorbed a whole lot of acute sexism during our Ghostbusters research and then, the next thing you know, it was November and our fragile little female bodies and minds were very, very weary.

One of my favorite podcasts recently made a disclaimer about choosing to be neutral when it comes to politics. I was very happy for him that he and his co-host were lucky enough to feel they had such a choice. Listeners, for as long as females are marginalized, we do not have that choice and I truly hope you can enjoy our programming and our points of view.
