Enjoy this magical realism story and cult classic film that we can’t shut up about. They made some questionable changes from page to screen but honestly we like them both for very different reasons. We talk about which of the sisters we saw ourselves as in high school and reveal which of the Owens women we want to be now. Dig into these details wit…
 
This story offers so much scope for the imagination! We truly feel we are kindred spirits with Anne (spelled with an E, obviously). And the wrap up of the show left us in the depths of despair. We’ll just have to console ourselves with the absolute multitude of books in this series. Jordan shares her anger at why this ended and Emily reveals why sh…
 
Follow us into the misty moors as we discuss whether or not this really is a love story, how much we’re enjoying the gothic drama, and if Bertha really was crazy. We also talk about what the teenage versions of ourselves might have thought of this book and how much we need to read more from all the Bronte sisters. Episode Drink: From Tequila Mockin…
 
Let’s go on a journey into the grishaverse. There is so much to love about these books and did the show take it too far by adding in characters from other serieses by the same author. We have lots of feelings about this book and oodles to share. Episode Drink: The Sun Summoner Cocktail 2 tbsp gold sprinkles 2 oz vodka 2 tbsp lemon juice fresh 1/2 o…
 
In this episode, we intellectually discuss the character development and the benefits of having the author on standby when making a series. It’s all very high brow. Just kidding! We talk about how hot this show is, the female gaze for sex scenes and how this might have been a sexual awakening for one of us. Episode Drink: The Outlander Fairy Pool C…
 
In this discussion we end up pondering the questions - Is it possible to use the same storyline from book to movie but miss the point completely? AND did the makers of this movie even read the book? Join us as we discuss a surprise favorite book and lament the tragedy that is its adaptation. Episode Drink: The Demosthenes 2 parts - X-rated fusion l…
 
Whodunnit? Who gave this movie a mediocre score? Was it Jordan? She’s known to be a lover of mystery novels and could she not bear to see her beloved tarnished on the big screen? Or was it Emily? Bored by the thought of puzzling out a riddle and craving a different kind of storytelling? The answer, much like the book’s ending, may surprise you. Epi…
 
Can anyone do magical realism correctly? We’re asking the tough questions for this movie and we have glowing reviews for our author. No one can possibly top our patron Voldemort. Thanks again for choosing this dumpster fire! Episode Drink: Spicy Jalapeno Margarita 1.5 oz Patrón Silver infused with jalapeño* .5 oz Flavor puree (blood orange, mango o…
 
Let’s talk about motherhood. Ya know just a light conversation that doesn’t make anyone uncomfortable. And while we’re at it let’s sprinkle in some details about racism, classism, and the problems with performative woke-ness. It’s all very casual. Episode Drink: Your Favorite Wine But only 4 oz of it Our Drinking Game for this Story Take a drink an…
 
A theatrical adaptation of the novel was presented at Seattle's Book-It Repertory Theatre in 2007.[13][14] The novel has also been adapted for the theater in a version written by Caridad Svich, which was commissioned by Repertorio Espanol in New York City. That adaptation premiered in 2009 and received the HOLA Award for Outstanding Achievement in …
 
Join us as we discuss some heavy topics in a pretty light hearted way with this adaptation. We love to see all the sisterhood these women experience and that’s why we were glad to have on Melissa from the Mimosa Sisterhood Podcast as our guest! Let’s talk about mental illnesses, the bonds we make with each other, and whether or not it’s worth stayi…

We revisit one of our favorite authors and Jordan helps Emily unpack some of her questions. We have thoughts about a Daphne Du Maurier and Shirley Jackson crossover and really just appreciate some gothic mavens. This is our last episode of the season so watch the socials to see when we will return! Episode Drink: The Liquified Ghost 2 ounces vodka …
 
We have some spicy takes on this adaptation. We love the topic, we’re not sure about the book and we don’t even have enough words to describe this movie. Get into it with us as Jordan shares some deeply held theater loves, Emily goes on a rant about how there doesn’t always need to be a defining reason for things, and we recognize our own failings …
 
Good heavens! We have so much to say about this classic piece of literature. We mostly talk about our favorite parts and forget to dissect the adaptation but, Mr. Bennet, please we can’t help ourselves. Em is flabbergasted that Jordan hasn’t seen the BBC version and Jordan admits why she has a hard time with this version of Mr. Darcy. Episode Drink…
 
Conversations about religion are tough sometimes. Deborah Feldman handles it with grace and frank honesty that is so compelling in her memoir. We adore the book and do our best to compare it with the miniseries despite the many changes. Join us as we dive into what we did and didn’t like about the show. Episode Drink: Wine Our Drinking Game for thi…
 
Do you like love stories? Do you like great character development? Do you swoon over the Irish and Italian countryside? Then do we have a show for you! Episode Drink: The Bittersweet Truth Ingredients 1 oz white rum ¼ oz cherry liqueur Top with cava 2 dashes black walnut bitters Barspoon Fernet Branca bitters Instructions Combine the rum, cherry li…
 
We need a drinking game for this episode of the podcast and not just the story! Count how many times we say pedantic, pretentious, and circle-jerk. (Hint: it’s a bunch) We love the cast of this movie and have strong opinions about the execution. One of us just breaks and can’t even bring her feelings to words. We’re sorry in advance. Episode Drink:…
 
Young people falling in love, but make it tragic. There are definitely some differences from book to movie on this one … but that’s not necessarily what we grip about in this episode. We discuss tropes, how to properly get every single early 2000’s alt-rock song in a soundtrack, and why this gives young folk bad expectations about love. Also, we fo…
 
Love makes you do crazy things - like hop in a car and go on a road trip with someone you barely know. But then again, it can also help you realize who you truly are so it balances out. Join us as we dig into who really is a more interesting narrator in this story and gush over how pretty all the vintage clothing is. We also have a laugh at some du…
 
Come be a princess with us! Yes, you! All little girls are princesses (age is irrelevant here). We profess our love of magical realism and commend this movie for its beautiful visual storytelling. We also find a few holes in the movie plot that make it tough to fully believe this story - even though we totally believe in the magic. Come relive Jord…
 
Come for the chess, stay for the styles. We talk about the flawless grace that is Anya Taylor-Joy and marvel at how we were obsessed with a story about chess. Chess. It was unexpected, to say the least. We also pick apart the Drama that is Beth’s life, ogle her gorgeous dresses, speculate if there is going to be a next season, and commend author Wa…
 
We dive into something wholesome with the March sisters in Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. This is an instant favorite for both Jordan and Emily so they swoon over the details of both the book and the movie. We have unpopular opinions about Amy and Jo’s characters, have strong opinions about who could play Laurie, and revel in the righteousness …
 
Grab your Gran and let’s go take out a coven! We return to the welcome arms of Roald Dahl but have some issues with the on-screen version. The creepy, dark streaks of Jim Hensen and Mr. Dahl produced a cult classic of a children’s horror movie. Plus, we come up with as many children’s horror movies and tv shows as we could come up with because it’s…
 
Why do we find some villains so entreating? Dr. Lector makes our skin crawl in every scene but he somehow still holds our attention. And then you put Anthony Hopkins in that role and we’re even more interested. Jordan reveals why she likes horror so much and Emily admits why she just never can get into it. Episode Drink: A Nice Chianti Enjoy with a…
 
In this episode, Jordan has the uncommon occurrence of actually getting the feels for these characters and Emily recounts how she wanted to BE Leslie when she was younger. We discuss how Josh Hutcherson might be a time traveler and which adaptation the author and her son pretend doesn’t exist. Episode Drink: The Drink of Queens 1 1/2 oz dry gin 1/2…
 
It is so easy to hate some of the characters in this book, and we loved doing it. The story is lovely and a big thanks to our Patreon for choosing it for their Author Level Patreon benefit because this is also one of our favorite books of the season. This movie though, is something else. If you’ve ever wanted to see puffy sleeves and 80’s synth ins…
 
You’re going to need a box of tissues for this book. We’re warning you now. We talk about the stark realities of the thirties, the advancement of female characters since then, and whether or not George is compassionate. We also share our true feelings about Steinbeck as an author and even introduce a new segment thanks to him. Episode Drink: White …
 
We are here for racial justice and loved reading about Starr as she decides to fight the injustice in her life. There are some very significant differences between the book and movie that change whole the meaning of T.H.U.G.L.I.F.E. as it affects the Carter family. We missed the references to Fresh Prince that were constant in the book and think th…
 
Imagine if you were born and grew up in a tiny tool shed in someone’s backyard and the only person you’ve ever known is Ma? We take a dive into the world of Jack, a 5 year-old boy who only knows Ma and Room. His world gets turned upside down when Ma informs Jack that there is a whole world outside of Room and they have to escape. The book and mater…
 
Grab a bucket of water to cool yourself down because we have some hot takes in this episode. We get into the virtues and vices of trying to modernize a classic piece of work and when it’s worth it. Jordan and Emily disagree about humanity itself and then try to discern if Bradbury was a “stuffy old man.” Grab the fire hoses - the ones with water - …
 
Grab your wands and house scarf because we’re going to Hogwarts. We delve into the magical world of Harry Potter with our guest Mike Schubert from Potterless Podcast. We start with the Sorcerer’s Stone - as one should - and talk about our favorite casting choices, some problematic directions for character development, and how it’s just perfect the …
 
Oh no. Ohhhhh, boy. Is it possible that the movie is better than the book? How could this happen? P.S. We still love the book. Join us as we get into the tangled web that is Lara Jean Covey’s love life. She’s relatably angsty and adorably anxious. Plus, Jordan explains to Emily just how far sisters would go to get revenge for petty incidents. Check…
 
Neither of us will look at peaches the same way again after this story. We discuss the very dudely professions of love, who is our prefered hunk, and where we draw the line when it comes to intimacy. This love story is complicated and beautiful and well worth diving into. Stay safe during this pandemic and don’t forget to wash your hands! Episode D…
 
Expectations were exceeded, expectations were not met. This time around, we definitely had differing opinions on what we expected and what we received. Combine that with some heavy hitting topics disguised as a love story brought some very interesting conversations. Episode Drink: Pink Pimm’s Cocktail 100 ml of Pimm’s 300 ml fruit sparkling wine 20…
 
Join us for one of our favorite stories ever. And not just the ones we read for the podcast. These weighty themes propel us into commentary that is just as scathing today as it was when it came out in 1960. One of us confesses her real feelings for Atticus Finch, goes on a rant about the publication of Go Set a Watchman, and we go in-depth about wh…
 
It’s okay to cry in public when you read this book. In fact, it’s expected. We didn’t think we were going to like this book as much as much as we did but it truly touched us. Take a dive into the layers of these characters, we share our love of all the amazing actors cast into this movie, and we’ve finally cracked the code of what it takes to make …
 
What would you do if you lived forever? Would you even want to? Disney found a way to make it look enticing - once again giving us unrealistic expectations about life. Check out our predictions of how we die and what we would do if we had all the time in the world. Alexis Bledel is perfect for this role, a wild Victor Garber appears and we remember…
 
Would you like a cup of tea? No? Well how about a story full of dread, terror, and growing sense of unease? Excellent, that’s just what’s in store for you. One of these characters is full of snake oil, another is as fluffy as a bunny who needs a hug. And one is a viper waiting in the grass for you. Take a look with us as we discuss if they go far e…
 
Want a slow burn? Want to watch a main character get gaslighted for two hundred pages? Wanna know what Satan’s baby looks like? We get into some of the weird ins and outs of this story and Jordan tries to convince Emily that this is actually scary. Episode Drink: Vodka Blushes 2 1/2 ounces Vodka 1 ounce freshly-squeezed lime juice (strained) 1/2 ou…
 
The dread and anxiety of IT is coming for you… just like this episode. We have some difference in opinion between which is better here, the book or the novel. It depends on what you’re looking for, long story short - but our journey to that conclusion is pretty ridiculous. We also talk about how Chris Pine is our favorite damsel in distress, Jordan…
 
We span continents and decades as we dive into the details of Crazy Rich Asians. Join us as we swoon over Astrid’s impeccable fashion, adore Ollie and Peik Lin’s sass, and simply enjoy the ample Female Gaze in this movie. We are with you whether you’re here for the sweeping romance between Rachel and Nick in the movie, or want to get down and dirty…
 
Stay gold, bookworms. We get into the ongoing need for stories like this one to continue being taught in classrooms. We also talk about the examples of healthy and unhealthy masculinity and how that’s changed over the decades. And if that’s too heavy for you, we also talk about all the delightful eye candy of all these leading actors showing some s…
 
Poo-tee weet? Get lost in time and space with us as we try to make it through the bombing of Dresden and many trips to Tralfamadorian. We raise a glass to feminism, adore scathing commentary, and try to come up with other words for ‘boring.’ While the movie might hit all the right beats from the book, it also kills the whole point of the book. So i…
