Found Families with Diana

It’s Monday, which means it’s our third week in our huge December Guestravaganza and it’s time to talk about one of our absolute favorite tropes of all time – found families! We sat down with long-time friend of the pod, Di (who you can also find over at AO3 as kerrykhat), to just kind of chat our way through some of our favorite found family media properties and what it is we love so much about this genre-spanning trope!

Captain America featuring Jenny from Reading the End

We’re back for our second week in a row of our December Gueststravaganza and we both want to say, this one feels like it has been a long time coming! We’ve long raved about how much we love the Reading the End podcast, and the two inestimable Jennys who host it. It was our pleasure to sit down with Gin Jenny to discuss all things Captain America, a truly great combination!

So buckle up, friends, for a longer episode in which we revel in our Steve Rogers feelings (and attempt to extract them from our Chris Evans feelings), discuss the tagging systems all major publishers would adopt, and remember that, surprising no one, Chelsea was Team Tony well before she was Team Cap. As a last note, friends, we want to thank you guys for bearing with us as we catch up on transcripts. Between Work, Life, and Technology, we got a bit behind but we promise, we’ll be caught up soon!

The Forcening Part 1: Rebecca (1940)

giphy

Hello again, friends! Our sincerest apologies for the delay in posting, but November has been…kind of a mess. (You guys understand.) Anyway, today in the fine tradition of thieves everywhere, we are borrowing a wonderful tradition from our friends over at Reading the End: THE FORCENING. We each pick a media property that the other hasn’t watched and…force them to watch it. It’s pretty much what it says on the tin.

We’re starting with Kay’s pick for Chelsea, the 1940 Alfred Hitchcock film Rebecca. We do get into spoiler territory for both the book AND the movie, so skip it if you need to watch first.

We’ll also be uploading commentary tracks of us watching both of our picks to the Patreon if you’re interested!

And join us next time for Chelsea’s pick for Kay: Batman and Robin (1997). (Yes. Really.)
