Indoorswomen - Episode 65 - Always the Time Traveler’s Bride, Never the Time Traveler

Why do time travelers love Rachel McAdams so much? We watched The Time Traveler’s Wife, About Time, Doctor Strange, and Midnight in Paris to get to the bottom of this peculiar typecasting. Yep, it’s an episode all about Rachel McAdams, romance, and time travel—what’s not to love?

(Special shout-out to Jaslyn of the High Expectations Podcast for convincing us to watch About Time.)

We also play a game of Fictional Five and chat about our fave sci-fi crushes.

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

Don't Kill Your Parents: Time Travel 101

Tune in for random recommendations of some Netflix originals (Everything Sucks and Terrace House: Opening New Doors) and shout outs to other podcasts where you can find our voices!

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!

People still get the “Yo, Dawg” meme, right? Right?!

This episode kicks off our Women Who Stare at Tropes series. We’re talking bottle episodes this time around: Buffy, Doctor Who, Angel, Homicide: Life on the Street, Friends, and Sealab 2021, for starters.

Plus, we play a game of TV Tropes Roulette. It’s trope-tacular!

What’s your favorite bottle episode? Holler at us on Twitter @indoorswomen (or, you know, compose a polite tweet).

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!

Completely unintentionally, we ended up putting together a podcast almost entirely about adult topics. After a rousing game of Marry/Sex/Kill wherein we challenged one another to marry, have sex with, or kill famous and/or fictional men, we move on to our “graphic novels: definitely not just for kids!” section.

Topics include:
Which Star Trek captain would you kill? Marry? Have sex with?
Which failed superhero would you choose?
Bonus: we revisit Meg’s crushes through the ages! (It’s totally embarrassing!)

Also, we talk about some of our favorite graphic novels: Saga and Sex Criminals! These aren’t your kids’ comics, my friend!

As usual, our intro/outro music is “We Are Highscore” by Krackatoa.
