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.

Paid in Puke S1E4: Set It Off

In this episode, we marvel at F. Gary Gray’s under-appreciated 1996 social justice drama, Set It Off, starring Queen Latifah, Vivica A. Fox, Jada Pinkett (nee Smith) and Kimberly Elise. Would this movie garner any Oscar attention today, or is it still too devoid of white saviors?

We also ask how you would low-key spend your bank robbery money?

Paid in Puke: S1E3 – Hustlers

In today’s episode, we fawn over Lorene Scafaria’s cathartic Wall Street feminist revenge film, Hustlers, starring Constance Wu and Jennifer Lopez.

In our periodic segment, Kent’s Two Cents, we learn why Amy’s dad thinks this film has “no heroes”. We also reveal our pole dance bangers.

Paid in Puke: S1E2 – Heathers

In this episode, we take a deep dive into the 1988 black comedy classic that gave us our motif: Heathers. Does Michael Lehman’s debut hold up in modern times? Find out as 12-year-old Lucy Green joins us in our new sporadic segment, Keggers with Kids.

We also ask, what classic literature would you meaningfully mark up before committing teenage suicide (Don’t do it)?

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?
