Episode 8: Leap Year

Leap Year holds space as the movie that made Renee want to start a podcast picking at romcoms. A film somehow both absolutely boring and completely infuriating, Rae and Renee pick at the dozens of bad tropes, the strange filmmaking choices, the Irish stereotypes, and the times they were both, individually, held hostage by the band Flogging Molly.  This episode is a cornucopia of heavy sighs, swift subject changes, and dinosaur sounds.

Intro/Outro: Westy Reflector "Love In This Land"

Episode 6: Sleeping With Other People

For the first time, Renee and Rae fundamentally disagree on the film! Is Sleeping With Other People a complete disaster of a movie with a heavy undercurrent of misogyny or a look at how purity culture hurts people? Do the leads have chemistry? Do the jokes work? Rae and Renee find a couple of things to agree on, but spend the majority of the episode presenting and defending two entirely different points of view on this Allison Brie/Jason Sudeikis indie rom com.
