Paid in Puke S2E3: Bombshell

In this episode, we defuse Jay Roach’s perplexing 2019 sexual harassment drama, Bombshell, a film that attempts to explain the #metoo movement to white CIS men. Does it succeed? Not particularly! The Hot Probs never end.

Also: In Kent’s Two Cents, Amy’s dad spills some Hot Goss about Gretchen Carlson via their shared personal trainer.

Recorded on the day after Amy’s Rockin’ New Years’ Eve party (hence our outdated Oscar talk), we aren’t at full strength here. Regardless, we manage to find a couple of laughs in an otherwise vomit-inducing film. Speaking of vomit, Bombshell contains a scene in which a woman throws up but isn’t pregnant. Could Baxter’s most-hated female-centric cinematic trope be on the wane?

Paid in Puke S1E1: Fogelfest!

I started a podcast with Amy Green and Cristina Barr

In our first episode, we discuss the works of Susanna Fogel, who co-wrote Booksmart (the directorial debut of Olivia Wilde) and wrote and directed The Spy Who Dumped Me. We also wonder what’s the worst song on the juke box and do people really lose their virginity to a specific song?

Also, what exactly does an 83-year-old white man think of Booksmart?
