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

We also play the hit card game “Geek Out” and try to stump each other with trivia!

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!

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

Indoorswomen Episode 12 - Superhero fatigue?

Subscribe

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”.

We also talk a little bit about attending Felicia Day’s book signing! Embrace your weird!

The main event for this podcast is our love of Hayao Miyazaki movies. We discuss our favorites: Princess Mononoke and Laputa: Castle in the Sky, particularly their themes and the contrasts between them (and why we recommend them wholeheartedly!).
