Biz is joined by guest co-host Drea Clark, producer, film festival programmer, and podcaster. We discuss how motherhood is portrayed in the movies, from the effortless high-heel wearing mothers of the 50's and 60's, to the outright terrible mothers in horror films, and the surprising representation in action movies. Drea gives us a movie mom watch list that we can get behind. Plus, Biz is slipping, we miss Theresa, and we talk to Chloe Cooney about her article, "The Parents Are Not All Right."
