episode 188: FFR 188: Titanic with special guest Caitlin Durante

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?
