The Mad Women’s Ball

This week we’re discussing ‘The Mad Women’s Ball’ with the “Mad Woman of Podcasting” a.k.a. “The Young Pope of Citywalk” – Julia Prescott. We also answer a call on our ‘Hotline’ about the actor performances that seem like auditions for other films. Plus, we give an update on our favorite unauthorized Celine Dion biopic that we’ve never seen – ‘Aline.’ And, as always, we’ve got ‘Staff Picks.’

In news, Chris Pratt to voice Mario, Billy Eichner’s upcoming rom-com will feature an all LGBTQ+ principle cast, and Paul Verhoeven’s ‘Benedetta’ gets the Catholics all riled up.
