Today we find out why the Pixar documentary did not sit right with Susie, but a new one helped her see the light at the end of the patriarchal tunnel. We talk about why comedy is so male-dominated, and it's more obvious than ever. Susie describes a new show on Hulu that blew her mind. We learn the history of bubble wrap. We discuss the complexities of the human voice, and learn why it's so hard to make robots sounds like humans. We find out why lesbian bars have largely disappeared. Plus, we talk to the AMAZING Annie Potts about her charity All R One, her work on Designing Women, & her extraordinary career.
