069: The Hate U Give (THUG)

10/16/2018
More
Beauty and the Bitch are tackling the wildly popular, extremely relevant and very sensitive topic of Angie Thomas' The Hate U Give (THUG). This book navigates the nuances of life in Garden Heights for Starr Carter, and how she balances her life there with her life at a "upscale" school. She is torn between worlds, and faces heavy decisions for a young person after she witnesses the the murder of her friend, but a police officer. This story is so important to be told, and really hits at the...

068: The Walking Dead

10/11/2018
More
Beauty and the Bitch have a love/hate relationship with AMC's The Walking Dead. We used to love it, and now we hate/love it. Like, is it truly terrible, or are we missing something? Either way, we're back this week to get "hyped" for the new season with criticism and jokes galore, but also some old skool nostalgia!

Beauty and the Bitch is here to bring the nostalgia back with GOOSEBUMPS this week. SPOILER ALERT: the theme song is lit, an so are WE. We've got all the recaps of your childhood scares, and all the shade about the movie situations that are doing R.L. Stein's legacy no justice.

066: Superstore

9/25/2018
More
Beauty and the Bitch is obsessed with Superstore and we think YOU SHOULD BE TOO. If you've never seen NBC's Superstore (also available on HULU) then you need to stop EVERYTHING you are doing right now and please go watch all of it. And laugh and laugh and laugh. Today's episode has *some* shade, but we're actually here to mostly share the love! (and have tangential non-sequitors where we complain and chat.....as per usual) BUT, we just have so much love for this show - so go forth and love...

065: The House with a Clock in its Walls

9/19/2018
More
Beauty and the Bitch is bringing nostalgia back (YEP), talking all things "The House with a Clock in its Walls;" this 1973 juvenile mystery fiction novel written by John Bellairs and illustrated by Edward Gorey. It is the first in the series of twelve novels featuring the fictional American boy Lewis Barnavelt. Mic was a big fan as a young person, and there will likely be a resurrgence with the upcoming movie adaptation, set to release in theaters on September 21st, 2018. Whether you love...

064: I'll Be Gone in the Dark

9/11/2018
More
Beauty and the Bitch GOES THERE (like Degrassi); this week we are taking on true crime and one CRAZY case in particular. The Golden State Killer was arrested for his crime spree (circa 70's-80's) just this year, thanks to advanced DNA technology. Michelle McNamara unfortunately didn't live to witness justice. She passed away in 2017, but her book I'll Be Gone in the Dark: One Woman's Obsessive Search for the Golden State Killer was published posthumously. Her desire to help get this case...

063: Neverwhere

9/6/2018
More
This week Beauty and the Bitch are diving into Neil Gaiman's CLASSIC "Neverwhere." Originally adapted as a BBC II Mini-series, Gaiman quickly saw the need to re-write and adapt as a novel alongside the show. (TIPS: The novel is way better). Mic and Morgan discuss a shared love of Gaiman (and Gay-men), while disecting Neverwhere and who should check it out (EVERYONE REALLY). PLUGS: Mic just saw Room (he's late, okay) and thinks EVERYONE SHOULD SEE IT. It's beautiful, sad, inspiring, and...

062: Outlander

8/29/2018
More
This week Beauty and the Bitch are diving into Diana Gabaldon's Outlander! Oooh sexxxy! Starz has popularized this fantasy/romance/period drama and season 4 starts VERY SHORTLY. Morgan is a big fan and is currently plowing through Book 4 in preparation for Season 4. Mic thinks it all sounds slightly ridiculous, but agrees that Sam Heughan (Jamie Fraser) is a god among men (SPOILERS: we talk about this fact. A. Lot). So, if you're into time travelling, fantasy, period pieces, messy...

061: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt. 2

8/20/2018
More
This week Beauty and the Bitch are actually wrapping up our Harry Potter talks with Part 2 of our Deathly Hallows discussion. It's bittersweet that we made it all this way; a year-and-a-half into our podcast and our beloved Potter-talk is ACTUALLY wrapping up. We've got all the feelings, all the hype, lots of jokes (we coat our sadness with comedy), predictions about futures & musings on the past. Also shade. SO MUCH SHADE. Hot takes: Hermione is NOT a virgin, but Harry and Ron for sure...

8/13/2018

This week Beauty and the Bitch are taking on Part 1 of our Harry Potter finale (of the original series...we'll find more HP to talk about!). It's bittersweet that we made it all this way; a year-and-a-half into our podcast and our beloved Potter-talk is ACTUALLY wrapping up. We have so many emotions about the first time we read this book (Mic has only read it once because he doesn't like for things to end). We've got all the feelings, all the hype, and some movie chatter (some good, some...

8/7/2018

This week Beauty and the Bitch are PUMPED to talk more Patrick Rothfuss news! Part Two of our Kingkiller Chronicle coverage includes all the latest internet gossip on the upcoming film and TV adaptations and what we know about Book Three (practically nothing, TBH). We do a little fantasy casting (BECAUSE WE LOVE TO DREAM BIG) and spill some T on what we love and don't love about The Wise Man's Fear. Are you obsessed with Kvothe and his journey? Not sure if it's worthwhile? This is a 98%...

This week Beauty and the Bitch are joined by their most popular guest: a bottle of wine! Okay, but really, we record on Wednesday and it just *happens* to be hump day. This week we are HYPED to discuss one of our all-time favorite fantasy books, Patrick Rothfuss's The Name of the Wind. Rothfuss is one of the most popular fantasy authors writing today (alongside Brandon Sanderson & George R.R. Martin) and we are waiting (impatiently) for the conclusion of his trilogy! We dive into the story...

The DCEU is constantly evolving and growing and they have a lot on the table right now! In this episode of Beauty and the Bitch we are diving into Teen Titans Go! To the Movies, the new DC streaming service "DC Universe", (which brought you the slogan "Fuck Batman!"... SO THAT'S A CHOICE) and other DC adjacent projects. Mic brings us all the deets on the new streaming service and what's on the docket. If you love DC there is a lot to look forward to! As always, we're joined by a bottle of...

7/16/2018
More
Beauty and The Bitch are sitting down this week with Jessamyn Fitzpatrick, traveling theatre artist and sex educator (and Mic's longtime friend). We discuss politics, problems she has with our podcast (?!), pop culture controversies and the general lack of female orgasms in media (we'll help you find a few, no worries). Jessamyn helps us address topics we're very passionate about but rarely fully discuss: representataion in entertainment, #MeToo, and how much wine we've consumed. Okay,...

7/10/2018

Beauty and the Bitch have a collective revelation: we have missed out on years of books by Terry Brooks. Mic has read a few and Morgan has read none, but SOMEHOW we still manage to have opinions about everything. Join us as we binge "The Shannara Chronicles", have feelings about Terry Brooks impressive (and intimidating) output, discuss the current state of fantasy and lots of other shenanigans and bitchiness! PLUGS: Mic thinks White Trash: Race and Class in America is an important...

Beauty and the Bitch are here to discuss all things Ant-Man and the Wasp, but we will not be skimping on the MOST IMPORTANT THING OF ALL: Michelle Pfeiffer. We're excited to see how Janet van Dyne survived the Quantum Realm (remember? She got sooooo smaaallllll!?!?) and have all the fan theories & predictions. Plus, we're here to help you make connections between Marvel's Infinity War, Ant-Man, and the rest of the MCU. What cameos do we predict? Who will die? Who will get VERY...

053: Preacher

6/26/2018
More
There's nothing more sacrilegious than Beauty and the Bitch....except maybe Preacher! Initially a graphic novel created by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, Preacher has been brought to life on AMC by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (and company). Now, we think this is an...interesting choice for AMC...and we have a lot of feelings. Meander along with us as Morgan speaks unintelligently and Mic imparts (frequently and at length) nuggets of his vast comic book knowledge. Just kidding, they both...

Beauty and the Bitch are joined today by our good friend Sarah (dinosaur expert*) to discuss Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom! Today we explore the drama of Hollywood, whether or not we actually would pay $$ to go to real-life Jurassic World, why high heels in Jurassic Park make us furious (I mean, come on), chemistry and lack thereof, our fave dinos, games and wordplay - AND SO MUCH MORE! If you feel that deep nostalgia when thinking of Jurassic Park, but you're also a cynical and judgmental...

We're joined again this week by Harry Potter superfan Ashley (@lifestyledxash)...and by two bottles of wine. All three are delicious and inspiring and our discussion is POPPING. Book 6 is the beginning of the end of the series, of Voldemort, and of Harry's childhood. We attempt to do it justice by slurring through a (pretty freaking decent) 2 Minute Recap and deep-diving into Harry's complicated and angst-ridden relationships. Malfoy gets his five minutes of Beauty and the Bitch fame...
