Indoorswomen - Episode 69 - Throwing Shade at Fifty Shades

Orgasm! OK, now that we have your attention:

For episode 69 (nice), we’re talking all about Fifty Shades of Grey. We even defend the trilogy a little, shock!

We also play a game of Marry, Sex, Kill, because of course we do. (And we newly dub the game Wed, Bed, Behead.)

Our random recs are The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and The Great British Baking Show.

You’ll want to stick around for the bloopers at the end, trust us.

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

Hi all! We have another re-run for you guys today. It’s one of my favorites and I hope you enjoy it. I recorded a short BRAND NEW BONUS INTRO for this episode in which I give a couple of new random recs. Enjoy and we will see you in a couple weeks.

Original Show Notes:

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!

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