CARPE DEEZ NUTZ

Dead Poets Society, a teen drama about conformity versus creativity and the poems of many, many, many, many, many, many long-dead white guys. For a movie this white and this male, we knew we’d need to bring in an expert mansplainer to make sure we understood it all, so today we welcome James Beard Award winner and Chicago Reader food critic, Mike Sula, to talk about the creative life, inspiration, and most importantly, the feelings of white men. Apparently, they have them! CW: suicide Listen on Amazon Prime / Audible Listen on Youtube   ...

THE PROBLEM WITH JOHN HUGHES

How did the patron saint of the 80s teen flick John Hughes get away with being so, well, rapey? Yes, that’s right folks, it’s time for SIXTEEN CANDLES, a movie about the horrors of high school: stolen underpants, foreign exchange students, sixteenth birthdays, and date rape. This week we welcome Wokefield’s resident lesbian Taylor Maughon to talk compulsory heterosexuality, sexual harrassment, and dreaming of that perfect guy.
