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 S1E5: Abortionpalooza 2019!

In this episode we compare and contrast Alexander Payne’s 1996(!) debut, Citizen Ruth (starring the magnetic Laura Dern) with Gillian Robespierre’s 2009 debut, Obvious Child (starring our dream BFF, Jenny Slate). Both are about abortion. Who gets it right? Who gets it wrong?

Also, we rant about our pregnancy trope pet peeves and discuss how far into a relationship one waits before they fart in front of their paramour.

PS: We have since learned that Gillian Robespierre pronounces her first name with a hard G. Our apologies for the (repeated) error.
