Episode 11: T is for Twitter Tiff

Kath takes to fisticuffs on Twitter. Miró continues her quest for grandma-hood with Sue Grafton’s alphabetic murder mystery series. Miró and Kath potentially make a lot of feminists mad by talking about when a woman’s story does or doesn’t need to be told. They potentially make a lot of xenophobes mad by disparaging films with bad foreign accents instead of subtitles. Will more Twitter fights ensue?

Today on the podcast Kath and Miró discuss Amy Schumer’s ‘Girl, You Don’t Need Makeup‘ video and why Miró chooses to look like a 12-year-old on the reg. We review All the Way, a play about President LBJ and the 1964 Civil Rights Act at Austin’s Zach Theatre (and soon to be dramatized for HBO).

Also, why LBJ and Elvis are oh so alike, Rhianna’s Chinese pizza dress, and how old is Ralph Lauren, really?!

Episode 2: In A World… Where Everything’s Free

Kathryn and Miró wax poetic about Tig Notaro and how Trevor Noah needs to take page out of her book. But should he delete those terrible tweets? Should we all have the “Right to be Forgotten”? Also, why Tidal may not be the end of the world.

Oh, and Kath reads a gorgeous Yeats poem.
