Ireland's premier non-binary drag entity Wren Dennehy aka Avoca Reaction joins us to talk about the 90's family film that all 90s family films aspire to be, Mrs. Doubtfire. We talk about gender obviously, the genius of Robin Williams, the underrated performance by Sally Field that GROUNDS THE WHOLE FILM, how good the child actors are, Pierce Brosnan's beautiful face, San Francisco, Harvey Fierstein, and wrap it up with a chat about Dublin youth theatre, writing, and our school musicals. It's a nice hour, we could all do with a nice hour.
