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.

Listen to Rachel and Jen on OPTIOT!

Indoorswomen - Episode 55 - One Chris to Rule Them All

Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Pine, Chris Pratt... Who is the #1 Chris?

Join us for The Great Chris-Off! It's the least objective examination of which semi-interchangeable white actor named Chris is Best Chris. We pit the Chrises against one another in a head-to-head, bicep-to-bicep competition.

Listen to find out who we crowned the King of Chrises.

We also chat about a few Chris-free recommendations: Santa Clarita Diet, Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, and Love, Simon.

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!

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

 

Indoorswomen - Episode 31 - Tom Hanks is Disappointed in You (aka Pop Culture Completism)

Apple Podcasts

Hi all! We were so excited to be back in the recording studio (aka our respective homes) after a month away! We kick off our return with a new Strength of Character segment, inducting The Office’s Michael Scott and The Mary Tyler Moore Show’s Mary Richards into our little Hall of Fame.

Our main event today is Pop Culture Completism. What is it about someone that makes us want to pursue all of their work? Do we do this? Do you?

We talk about directors and writers (Joss Whedon, Jane Espenson, Charlie Kaufman, Wes Anderson), authors (Donna Tartt, Neal Stephenson, Rainbow Rowell, JK Rowling), and actors (Ewan McGregor, Dan Stevens), plus many more!

Tweet at us (@indoorswomen) with your thoughts on completism!

Bonus ending feature: our Oscar predictions! We fearlessly predict some of the bigger awards, even though we aren’t caught up on our movie watching. Tune in next time for Oscar commentary.

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

Rerun: Episode 4 - Great Adaptations (apologies to Dickens)

Enjoy our encore of Episode 4:

In this episode we explore modernized adaptations of great literature - both Shakespeare and Jane Austen - and alternative forms of communication and narrative. It’s way goofier than it sounds. Also, we paraphrase our segment title “Great Adaptations” from Dickens and then never mention him. Sorry, Dickens!

There is also a little bit of singing. Very little. Don’t worry about it.

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

Indoorswomen will be back with all-new episodes in July, so stay tuned!
