Paid in Puke S1E6: Carrie

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!

*Editor’s note: We had some audio issues during the recording of the episode. My apologies for the inconsistent levels and my big, stupid laugh occasionally piercing your eardrums. -Jessica
