Paid in Puke S1E7: The Craft

We’re back in that golden year of cinema, 1996, to discuss Andrew Fleming’s one-of-a-kind teenage witch (not to be confused with Teen Witch) escapade, The Craft! It’s rife with Hot Probs, but Fairuza Balk’s performance cannot be denied.

Lucy Green is back in Keggers With Kids, and we also reveal what we would have used witchcraft for in high school (or, in Lucy’s case, middle school).

And finally, Amy tells a HILARIOUS story about the famous murderer who hails from her home town.

Paid in Puke S1E6: Carrie

We dive head-first into Brian De Palma’s 1976 horror classic, Carrie*! It’s Keggers With Kids all episode-long as we’re joined by 12-year-old Lucy Green to discuss public school sex ed, detail-oriented bullies, and Piper Laurie’s one-of-a-kind line readings.

We also reveal what we would do with telekinesis. And, for a special treat, check out our Facebook page to see who wore it (pig’s blood) best: Carrie or Amy!

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?
