I Feel Pretty

You'll all feel pretty after this episode! This week's crew is comprised of Ricky Carmon, April Wolfe, Drea Clark, and "Mrs. Alonso Duralde" - film critic, Dave White. They tackle the somewhat controversial new film I Feel Pretty. They discuss beauty standards within the film industry, Amy Schumer, and the juggernaut performance of Michelle Williams as Avery LeClair. Plus, Drea shares a sweet story about Fred Durst and Dave rates some famous sex tapes. Not to mention, the gang talks about those "unconventionally sexy" movie stars that don't get the love they deserve. All on this week's episode!

Allison Mack tries to recruit Emma Watson into a sex cult, Victoria Mahoney becomes the first black director on a Star Wars film as she is hired as the second unit director on Star Wars: Episode IX, and John Travolta says working with Fred Durst "may be his favorite" experience on a film.

The Big Sleep

In a spectacular new episode, director Martha Coolidge (Real Genius, Valley Girl, Rambling Rose) joins April to discuss Howard Hawks' The Big Sleep. The two of them dissect the film: the amazing script by Leigh Brackett and William Faulkner, the electric chemistry between Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart, and the masterful directing of Howard Hawks. Plus Martha relays some truly remarkable stories from her celebrated career, including the time the producers on one of her movies secretly cast a prostitute in her film. She also talks about discovering Nicolas Cage for Valley Girl, her work as the DGA president, and screening a film for Princess Diana. This episode is a wild one.

This week, Karen Tongson and Margaret Wappler are joined by clinical psychologist and actress Megan Auster-Rosen to discuss therapy in film and television shows.

Margaret Wappler is all about High Maintenance on HBO and the show’s weed dealer/confidant The Guy. Megan is all about Parkland student, Emma Gonzalez and her six minutes of silence, dedicated to the victims of the shooting at Stoneland Douglas High School. Karen is all about the NBC drama, Rise, even though it falls into some unfortunate tropes of the white man passing over the qualified woman of color for the job.

The panel will explain their first experiences with therapy in their personal lives. Then, they’ll get into therapy in such movies and shows like Big Little Lies, Meet the Fockers, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, The Sopranos and more. Plus, Megan will give her professional opinion on the benefits and downsides of TV therapy shows like Dr. Phil.

With Karen Tongson, Margaret Wappler and Megan Auster-Rosen .

That’s My Jam:

Megan Auster-Rosen - Alicia Keys - No one

Karen Tongson - The Lovin' Spoonful - Butchie's Tune

Margaret Wappler - Peter Gabriel - Come Talk to Me

Each week we’ll add everyone’s jams to our Spotify playlists.
