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 heart of the black lives matters movement, and the importance of young peoples voices. For B&B Cast, we are coming to this topic as allies, and people who are hungry to listen and learn....but lets be real, we fit some jokes in hereeeeeee (about very appropriate tangential things, that are not insesitive, HALP, we try, we hope you like it!!!)

 

Okay- BYEEEE.

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.

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 upon it as well! 

PLUGS:

Mic is recommending you check out Go-Go Boy Interrupted (featuring your favorite Superstore person!)

Morgan actually enjoyed (Cock)Blockers, so check it out for laughs!

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 YA, mysteries, a little bit of fantasy, jokes, rudeness, games OR everything in between: this is an episode for you!

PLUGS:

Mic want's you to check out Dorothy and the Wizard in OZ (different from your average Oz book, but TOTALLY worth a read! So many Oz books to explore)

Morgan assumes you already know, but Netflix's adaptation of "To All the Boys I've Loved Before" is AMAZING! Go watch it.

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 solved and bring an end to the living terror still felt by the GSK's victims was inspiring. She is a wordsmith like no other, as well as an amazing journalist and investigator.

Naturally we've got (some of) the facts, the jokes (yes, we even joke about this), the recommendations, and everything else ya need!

PLUGS:

Mic want's you to check out Castle Rock (on HULU). He also plugs "his personality, which is effervescent".... OKAY GURL.

Morgan for sure wants you to read "I'll Be Gone in the Dark" (IT'S SO GOOD Y'ALL). ALSO: Check out the Paul Holes episode (#122) of My Favorite Murder. This is a great follow-up after you finish the book!

Sep 6, 2018

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 makes you value your life and relationships. He gives this his only 10/10 on his summer watch list!

Morgan want's to plug the book she got out of a free-library in Atlanta - "The Friday Night Knitting Club": Sounds......lame? Actually sweet and very good. Family drama, and said to be "Steel Magnolias set in Manhatten".....so. There's that.

Aug 29, 2018

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 families, comedy and romance and more, you should check it out! It's less about romance as time goes on, so if that's holding you back DON'T LET IT.

Aug 21, 2018

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 are (for sure!).
If you read Harry Potter backwards, the satanic messaging becomes clear. FACT.

OKAY.  We will now commence... 
BURNING THE ENTIRE SERIES IN EFFiGY!!! Praise Be!!! May the Lord Open!!!

GROSS. 
Sorry.
Religious Fit.

Hope you've enjoyed making your way through Harry Potter with us over the last 1.5 years. It's been great on our end. NOW, onward to filler episodes! :) 

PLUGS:

Mic wants to remind you of his strong stance: FUG THE EFFING EPILOGUE.

ALSO: check out our Voldemort Origins of the Heir episode, and also check out the full length movie on YOUTUBE!

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 BAD). TBH, we were not into Part 1 of the film. So sorry (not sorry).

Thank you for following our journey with Harry (AND HERMIONE!); please enjoy jokes, banter and information about one of our favorite things in existence (and check out part 2 next week!).

PLUGS:

Mic thinks you should read "The Belgariad" series by David Eddings to scratch that fantasy/coming of age itch. This amazing series is a fantasy classic. If you love Harry Potter, then you'll probably love this too!

Also, if you are in need of help or assistance or want to know what resources are available in your community (food needs, rent assistance, homelessness, etc.), please call 2-1-1. THIS IS A GREAT RESOURCE AND YOU CAN CALL ANYWHERE IN THE US! <3

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% spoiler-free discussion that we handle very diplomatically because we are VERY responsible adults. So tune in even if you're not completely caught up!

PLUGS:

Read "The Name of the Wind" & "The Wise Man's Fear" (DUH).

Morgan thinks you should read "The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck" by Mark Manson. This is a great book for high strung, high anxiety planogrammers (IT HER). Have you tried giving less fucks? Let's try together!

**Mic wants to plug not giving a fuck, but giving a DAMN.

ALSO, he thinks you should watch "Pat Prounounes King Killer Names" while you read the books, because all fantasy names = hard-ass-ridiculousness. Don't embarrass yourself!

Jul 31, 2018

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 arc, character archetypes, feminism (or lack thereof), our fave plot lines/characters, whats going on in the world of Rothfuss and SO MUCH MORE.

We will be covering The Wise Man's Fear (Book 2) in our next episode, so stay tuned for information on that and on the  upcoming book-to-screen adaptation!

PLUGS:

Morgan wants to plug actually reading things and forming an opinion without hating them on blind prejudice. Give that shit a try (try GOOD fantasy or a solid Jane Austen novel)!

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 wine (do we have a problem y'all?), as well as wit, charm and too many opinions. We've got some games (old skool!) and some other goodies for you - check it out!

PLUGS:

Morgan thinks you should really invest some time in Teen Titans Go! (the animated TV show!)- on HULU now!

Mic thinks you should (get excited to) give DC Universe a try (when it premieres later this fall)! You can catch goodies like the Wonder Woman TV series (!), Batman the animated series and all the DC movies.

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, well, we talk about those things all the time, but we're doing a deep dive ON TONIGHT!

If you love drunken and explicit pop culture discussions...if you love talking about sex...THIS IS THE EPISODE FOR YOU! 

PLUGS:

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 read for all people (but especially for self-identifying "trashy" white people).

Morgan continues to love the work of Brandon Sanderson, and is thoroughly enjoying Words of Radiance ATM!

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 SMALL!?!?

 

PLUGS:

Mic thinks The Girl With All The Gifts is a well-written, hauntingly beautiful zombie movie. Streaming now on Amazon Prime.

Morgan loves A Princess for Christmas (and she's zero percent embarrassed) so pay money to see it now, because you wont regret it.

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 read the Wikipedia page. 

We explore the vast filmography of Rogen & Goldberg, discuss pitfalls in casting and find various other things to bitch about (cuz, lets be real).

PLUGS:

Mic thinks summer is the perfect time for some JON SNOW! The series finale of Game of Thrones inches closer every day and now's the perfect time to start a rewatch.

Morgan thinks you should check out Brandon Sanderson - especially The Stormlight Archives, Book 1; The Way of Kings

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 bitch, THEN THIS IS THE EPISODE FOR YOU!

*Y'all, she just likes dinosaurs a lot.

 

PLUGS:

Morgan really thinks you should check out THIS (No Spoilers, but it's classic John Oliver business) 

Mic thinks you need to dive deep into that 90's Kid nostalgia and check out both The Land Before Time (a classic and an ART FILM, don't @ us!) and We're Back (if you never saw this you are missing out).

Sarah recommends you check out the magical realism of Jane the Virgin (Seasons 1-4 on Netflix now!) & My Favorite Murder (everyone's fave Murdercast that's also kinda funny!)

Beauty and the Bitch is bringing you Part 2 of our Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince discussion! We are again joined this week by Harry Potter superfan Ashley (@lifestyledxash)...and by two additional 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 continue our deep-diving into Harry's complicated and angst-ridden relationships, sprinkling in games limericks and pertinent(?) information! We have some nit-picky things we need to discuss (like how good of a professor is Slughorn, really?), some top five lists (The WORST Professors Ever). And, y'all, TBH, so much nonsense and talking over each other and laughter. Basically we're perfect. Check it!

Also, stay tuned till the end for our grand conclusion: Harry Potter inspired porn names: #DracHoe MalfWhore

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 (okay, Mic just loves him and talks about him all the time) and Ashley calls out Harry's male privilege.

YOU'RE A DIRTY CHEAT, HARRY POTTER!

Part 2 is coming next week, BBs!

Listen, we love Deadpool. We think Ryan Reynolds is the brilliant and foul-mouthed antihero we deserve. In fact, we're COMPLETELY behind the first installment of Deadpool (like, almost no scruples at all) and we predict that Deadpool 2 is gonna crush it (whether measured in dollars or giggles or both). 

Come and relive our favorite Deadpool moments with a 2 Minute Recap (that Morgy crushes), games, secret histories, laughs at the expense of other movies and other humans and MORE.

Where does Deadpool stack up in your Marvel faves? What do you think about future potential crossovers? Will Disney keep this film R-rated?! Come and speculate with us!

 

PLUGS:

Josh Brolin in Avengers: Infinity War....he's a Thicc Honey.

This week on the podcast we're talking about sequels & Solo: A Star Wars Story, which is out just in time for summer blockbuster season. We're (sort of) excited for it! We, of course, have some scruples (after all, this is "Beauty and the Bitch: Scruple-Cast"), but we're very excited to see Donald Glover as a young Lando!

Sequels and spin-offs are a big part of the Hollywood landscape right now, so we also discuss these larger trends. Is creativity dead? Do we find the best writing in exploring characters further and elaborating upon fictional worlds, or is the whole practice simply lazy??? MAYBE BOTH? Come catch some feels with Beauty and the Bitch and go see Solo in theaters summer 2018!

 

PLUGS:

"Ear Hustle" podcast: by and about people living in the San Quinten Prison. So fascinating (and much more truthful than many depictions of prison life). Subscribe to it!

"PopCulture Happy Hour" specifically the "Antiques Roadshow Episode": If you ever loved ARS, then this episode will resonate with you!

May 15, 2018

We both grew up with urban legends that led to sleeplessness, frightening fun with friends, and fear of the dark. These legends vary geographically and the most popular tales change over time as new fears are introduced. Slender Man is a recently developed urban legend that was born on the internet is and, frankly, scary as shit (!!). 

BUT WHAT DOES IT MEAAAN?!

Come check out the history of urban legends and the birth of Slender Man with Beauty and the Bitch! This episode covers the forthcoming film featuring Slender Man and the grisly crime that has helped further popularize the legend. 

What are your favorite urban legends? How does Slender Man make you feel on a scale of zero to "OH SHIT GET HIM OUT OF HERE, I'LL NEVER SLEEP AGAIN"?

PLUGS:

For some *great* creepy pasta/micro-horror watch "Lights Out" on YouTube

"Marble Hornets" is a YouTube miniseries that centers on Slender Man (it's one of the main sources of the legend).

It Follows - awesome scary movie that's not too scary!

The Nightmare documentary on Netflix about night terrors and sleep paralysis. This movie is scarier than 90% of horror movies!

Have you heard about these Movies That Never Were?

 

There are many near-miss Hollywood projects that are initially greenlit but eventually founder. Maybe it was a great idea, maybe it even began production...and maybe it dramatically fell apart because of money issues. If it could have been but never was, we're talking about it today!

 

Speculation is our strong suit and throwing around baseless judgement is our mainstay. Join us for a countdown of our top "Movies That Never Were" and help us sort through the wild rumor mill to figure out what doomed them.

Preview: NICOLAS CAGE WAS GOING TO BE SUPERMAN???? 

 

PLUGS: 

 

Mic has been loving Agents of Shield (Check it out on ABC! [or Netflix or HULU, let's be real])

 

Morgan has been loving brackets. Yep. She went there....So, check out your Social Media for people filling out useless brackets. And in the meantime, tell us who wins: Star Wars VS. MCU. #Trending #bullshit
