It’s our parody episode! Spoofs and references abound as we discuss our favorite franchises, our favorite franchise parodies, and our favorite parody franchises. Whew. I picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue! Highlights include Airplane! and other Leslie Nielsen vehicles, Bill Murray extravaganzas, and, of course, Spaceballs and Galaxy Quest. 

Bonus: The game this week is fictional five and the category is creature feature! 

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

Today we explore sorting and choosing factions in pop culture. When does it work? When is it problematic? Primarily, we talk about the sorting processes in Harry Potter and the Divergent series. Note: if you have not read the 3rd Divergent book, Allegiant, there are some spoilers, but we warn you ahead of time.

After that, we assign each other pop culture homework! Meg and Jen each choose a TV show for the other to watch for the first time. Watch along with us, if you like! We will be discussing these in the next episode.

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

Thanks for listening!

Indoorswomen Episode 12 - Superhero fatigue?

Play Episode 12



We start out with a brand new game called “Fictional Five” that makes us feel weird about crushes on animated foxes. Remember, no such thing as a guilty pleasure!

Our main segment is about Superhero fatigue, in which we discuss both comic book movie/tv universes, but mostly Marvel! Superheroes - passe or here to stay? Superheroes have made the jump from comic book pages to screens big and small. Is the culture saturated? Who are our favorites? Who are we tired of? Also: if we had superpowers, what would they be?

Plus, tangents!

Spoiler: Meg and Jen are not particularly “Superhero Fatigued”.
