Indoorswomen - Episode 48 - Happy Thorsgiving!!

Hint: does contain Thor spoilers! If you want to skip those, go ahead and listen until we get to the Thor discussion and then skip forward to 32:00 where we talk about something completely different!

Thor: Ragnarok, what did we think? Why is it so much better than other Thors of the past? Which Thor haircut is our favorite?

Later: Adventures in L.A. with the #LadyPodSquad, including meetups, putting faces to voices, a visit to a creepy museum, and a Disneyboundingtrip to Disneyland!

Today we are chatting about documentaries! Stick with us, because even if you aren’t a fan of the usual documentary fare, we are sure you’ll find something to like in our choices about unusual competitions (Somm, Barista, King of Kong), or blowing the lid off the MPAA rating system (This Film is Not Yet Rated), or chronicling the life of one of our favorite characters/actors (For the Love of Spock).

And stay for our gushing review of Wonder Woman!

Indoorswomen - Episode 32 - Meta Throw Pillows

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.

Apple Podcasts

Hi all! We have a re-run for you today: one of our favorite episodes about superheroes! It is also the first episode in which we play “fictional five”.

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”.

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.
