Indoorswomen - Episode 81 - Justice for Cats!

Cats: unfairly maligned by pop culture or true villains of the animal kingdom? In this episode, we explore how our furry feline friends are represented in media and wonder why they get a bad rap. Topics include cat tropes, witches’ familiars, cat shapeshifters, cartoon kitties, cat-like aliens, and much more. Listen meow!

Plus, we play a rousing game of Wed, Bed, Behead, and we wrap up with our Random Recommendations: Alias and Fever Dream by Of Monsters and Men.

Our intro/outro music is "We Are Highscore" by Krackatoa.

Indoorswomen - Episode 59 - Beauty and the Bestiality?

We invited the hosts of our sister podcast, One Person's Trash Is Our Treasure (@optiot), to chat about the classic "beauty and the beast" trope.

What makes fictional interspecies romance so interesting? Who are some of our favorite couples? Was there ickiness lurking below the surface of The Shape of Water? Let's just say, things get hairy in this episode (and scaly, and alien, and... )

We also played a wild game of Marry, Sex, Kill and wrapped with random recommendations. This episode's recs are Hush, I'll Be Gone in the Dark, Tully, and Netflix's Lost in Space.

Our intro/outro music is "We Are Highscore" by Krackatoa.

Indoorswomen - Episode 49 - We Want to Believe

Just like Fox Mulder, we can't stop talking about aliens. ET, Xenomorphs, Vulcans, you name it.

Why are there so many aliens in pop culture? What are some of our favorite depictions of aliens? Which alien tropes could we live without?

(Disclaimer: We don't actually talk about the X-Files in this ep, oops!)

We also play a game of "Strength of Character," featuring two quippy ladies: Elizabeth Bennet and Buffy Summers.

And we wrap up by sharing our random recommendations: The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and Coco!
