Paid in Puke S3E10: Izzy Gets the F*ck Across Town

izzy ep artOn the Series 3 finale, we go on a journey with Christian Papierniak’s 2017 indie stay-cation road movie, Izzy Gets the F Across Town, starring Mackenzie Davis and a buffet of character actors including Annie Potts, Alia Shawcat, and Carrie Coon.

It’s not without Hot Probs, but Papierniek’s debut transcends the usual romantic comedy plot of a woman trying to get back with an ex by making Izzy an anti-hero you don’t mind rooting against. it also showcases the people she meets on her car-less journey across the expanse of L.A. Plus, the seminal Riot Grrrl soundtrack kicks ass.

On our Lunchtime Poll, we tell tales of fraught journeys from our personal pasts.

Paid in Puke returns with Series 4 in Fall 2020. In the meantime, keep your heads and masks up!

Paid in Puke S3E4: Ladies and Gentlemen, the Fabulous Stains

fabulous-stains-01In today’s episode, we put out for Lou Adler’s 1982 Riot Grrrrl origin story, Ladies and Gentlemen, the Fabulous Stains, starring Diane Lane and Laura Dern as baby punks. We talk about makeup and fashion goals, re-appropriating the attentions of patriarchal assholes, and we somehow tangent our way to St. Elsewhere snow globe endings.

Editor’s note: We experienced many technical difficulties during this episode so the sound quality is worse than usual. (How bad is it?) It’s so bad, we had to make a Max Headroom reference. S-s-s-s-sorry. That’s podcasting during uncertain times for ye.
