Paid in Puke S6E3: Abortionpalooza 2021

On today’s episode, we’re discussing the tragic state of underage abortion rights in the United States through thematically similar, but tonally opposite films: Eliza Hitman’s 2020 drama Never Rarely Sometimes Always starring Sidney Flanigan and Talia Ryder; and Rachel Lee Goldenberg’s 2020 comedy, Unpregnant, starring Haley Lu Richardson and Barbie Ferriera. 

There are some Hot Probs, but these films are both great in their own right and feature some really incredible debut performances.

Despite the heavy subject matter, we manage to keep it light on the Two Lunchtime Polls for the Price of One!

Paid in Puke S6E2: I, Tonya



On today’s episode, we’re setting the record straight with Craig Gillespie’s 2017 bio dramedy, “I, Tonya”, starring Margot Robbie, and Allison Janney. This film is a little miracle with its pitch-perfect performances, Rashomon story-telling, meta fourth-wall breaking, Cohen-esque comedy, ACAB-ery, and a bangin’ soundtrack to boot. We manage to have a very fun conversation about a very HEAVY-hitting story, the egregious double-standards in sports crime prosecution, and what happens to a woman who is “the wrong kind of poor” in this country.

This episode references a groundbreaking piece on Tonya Harding by Sarah Marshall. Check it out.

Paid in Puke S6E1: Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

On our series 6 opener, we’re setting sail with Howard Hawke’s 1953 musical comedy, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, starring the incomparable Jane Russell and Marilyn Monroe! This movie is gay in every sense of the word! It’s a mood lifter, a thirst trap, and a subversive musical romp. Marilyn and Jane are the ultimate multi-taskers, dazzling audiences, dodging private detectives, dismantling the patriarchy, and even making a little money along the way. What’s not to love?

On the Lunchtime Poll, we try to figure out the weakness about which our friends need to keep us in check.
