Indoorswomen - Episode 71 - Cannoli and a Hill of Beans

It’s Oscars time again! To celebrate the 91st Academy Awards, we’re bringing you this Oscar-filled episode.

We discuss two classic Best Picture winners we had never seen before: The Godfather and Casablanca.

You can also time travel to the past with us as we share some thoughts on how the 2019 Awards might play out (we recorded before they aired, what can we say?)

Plus, we play a game of Fictional Five and wrap up with recommendations for David Tennant Does a Podcast With… and Kentucky Route Zero.

Indoorswomen - Episode 51 - Basic Bitches

We can be basic, and that's okay!

In this episode, we tackle what it means to be a "basic bitch," how basicness applies to pop culture, and why we embrace popular media.

We also weigh in on the 2018 Oscar nominations. Who do we think will take home the Academy's little gold men?

Stay tuned to the end for our random recs: Dark and One Day at a Time.

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

Today’s topic is:  What pop culture makes us cry? Whether it is joy, sadness, or excitement, what makes us a little misty? Spoiler: we have never cried. Ever. Ok, that’s a lie.

We list sad themes, specific moments, crying triggers, and Meg does extensive psychological research to justify being a giant crybaby. From the emotional manipulation of sad music and tense storylines, it basically all makes us blubber. Especially Tom Hanks. Damn that Tom Hanks. It’s the least sad podcast about crying ever! Plus, memes of the past!

Bonus: a discussion of that really long episode of Jimmy Kimmel: the Oscars! We chat about our excitement about Moonlight’s win, our horror over the mix-up, and our ambivalence about Jimmy Kimmel’s hosting.

Tune in next week for a discussion of the pop culture homework we gleefully assign each other at the end of this episode. It’s fun to make people do things.

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

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

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.

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.
