Indoorswomen - Episode 61 - Dino DNA!

Dinosaurs have been leaving their footprints across pop culture for over a century! In this episode, we talk about some of our favorite dino depictions, franchises, characters, and tropes.

Topics include: Is Godzilla a dinosaur? How is Dr. Ellie Sattler so badass? And, should Dwayne Johnson be in every movie? (Yes.)

Minor spoiler warning: We rag on Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom more than we planned to. Sorry not sorry. (No major plot details revealed.)

We also play a game of Would You Rather? Fandom Edition. And we wrap with our Random Recommendations: Carry On by Rainbow Rowell and Felicitations!, a Felicia Day podcast.

Stay tuned to the very end for bloopers.

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

Indoorswomen - Episode 48 - Happy Thorsgiving!!

Hint: does contain Thor spoilers! If you want to skip those, go ahead and listen until we get to the Thor discussion and then skip forward to 32:00 where we talk about something completely different!

Thor: Ragnarok, what did we think? Why is it so much better than other Thors of the past? Which Thor haircut is our favorite?

Later: Adventures in L.A. with the #LadyPodSquad, including meetups, putting faces to voices, a visit to a creepy museum, and a Disneyboundingtrip to Disneyland!

As always, our intro/outro music is "We are Highscore" by Krackatoa

Hi everyone! Today we have some new excitingness for you! We introduce a segment called “Strength of Character” where we discuss our favorite characters from any medium or genre and explain why we love them. Our definition of “strength” is not “most kickass” nor even “most likeable”. Instead, we want to identify those characters that keep us coming back to the same shows, films, and books over and over and what makes them so intriguing.  First nominees: Capt. John Yossarian and Lorelai Gilmore. How’s that for variety?

Next up, we discuss retrofuturism! Flying cars, floating homes, robot butlers, and nuclear powered everything. Why were these tropes so popular? What are our favorite pop culture representations? We wrestle with the complicated concepts of viewing the future from the past, viewing the past from the future, and viewing both simultaneously from the present. We also discover we both experience nostalgia for a future that never came to pass with our discussion of Tomorrowland. Plus, discussions of classic and modern science fiction and visits to the World’s Fair and colonies on Mars.

Last, we have our random recommendations, wherein Meg chats about her long-term love of Project Runway and Jen discusses her newly minted passion for Bob’s Burgers.

As always, our intro/outro music is “We are Highscore” by Krackatoa.

Thanks for listening!

Audio note: Jen is going to try and find a less clicky mouse!
