For over 20 years, both Anita and Ebony have successfully refused to watch James Cameron’s 1997 mega-blockbuster TITANIC, but today they’ve finally relented in order to have a discussion with returning guest and Titanic super-fan Caitlin Durante. Can Caitlin’s sincere love of this disaster movie/period romance warm the waters of Anita and Ebony’s icy reception? Or are two decades worth of parody, memes, and replays of “My Heart Will Go On” too much to keep them from never letting go?
In our final episode of 2021, we welcome a very special guest: Carolyn Petit herself! Along with Anita and Ebony, the original FFR trio are discussing Paul Verhoeven’s BENEDETTA—the premiere of which faced protests by Catholics upset with the film’s depiction of illicit attraction between 17th century nuns...
Along with their special guest—Caroline Heldman, chair of critical theory and social justice at Occidental College and the executive director at The Representation Project—Anita and Ebony are taking on the entirety of the TERMINATOR franchise...
This episode of the podcast was originally meant to be a look at the Terminator franchise as a whole, but there’s only two things that can stop a podcast: (1) the fall of civilization at the hands of our robot overlords, or (2) laryngitis. We’ll let you guess which took down this week’s attempt.
Our Terminator meta-take will be out in a few weeks, but in the meanwhile we’re re-releasing our episode on 2019’s Terminator: Dark Fate...
Today on a special episode of the podcast, Anita is joined by director and co-writer of the film UNPREGNANT—Rachel Lee Goldenberg—as well as Lizz Winstead, co-creator of The Daily Show and founder and executive director of the non-profit Abortion Access Front. Together we’ll be discussing abortion and reproductive rights both as portrayed in media and in the US today.
If you’re a regular listener, you may remember us expressing careful optimism at the news that Chloé Zhao was set to direct an entry to the MCU. Well, ETERNALS is finally here and you can consider our hopes dashed. Two special returning guests are joining Anita on this episode of the podcast: game designer, director, and musician, Teddy Dief; and CEO of Sweet Baby Inc, Kim Belair. Together Anita and our guest try to answer: In a film with no dearth of talent, how did ETERNALS go so wrong?
After two separate polls, our Patrons have finally granted Ebony’s wish and selected THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE (1962) for discussion. In Anita’s absence, Ebony is joined by not one, but two! very exciting special guests: Associate Professor in Writing, Rhetoric, and Digital Studies at the University of Kentucky, Dr. Kishonna Gray, as well as writer and bon vivant, Paul Spencer. Join us for a lively discourse on this classic political thriller.
Denis Villeneuve’s take on Frank Herbert’s sci-fi classic has finally hit theaters and HBO Max. Anita and Ebony are on hand with special guest—writer, producer, and Lynch-Dune-stan—Jordan Crucchiola to take it apart. There have been several film adaptations of DUNE, and Villeneuve’s version has a lot going on that we are excited to discuss. Let’s get to it!
The podcast returns for our Spooky Season finale with a viewing of the 1982 slasher classic SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE featuring horror super-fan and friend of Feminist Frequency, returning special guest Jessica Zollman. Listen in to join us on this wild ride via the ultimate “thriller killer driller” iconic slasher movie.
This week the podcast is taking a step away from October’s spookier fare so that we can discuss the latest Bond movie, NO TIME TO DIE, with returning special guest, game designer, director, and musician, Teddy Dief. Directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga and co-written by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, the 25th entry to the franchise is also the last that will star Daniel Craig as the titular, not-so-secret-identity, super spy...
