Get Mad and Throw Crystals (Hacks S2 & Its Creators)

Get Mad and Throw Crystals (Hacks S2 & Its Creators)

This week we’re diving into Hacks… again. Season 2 is out and it was so good, we had to revisit the show. This time we also talk about the phenomenal and groundbreaking creators Lucia Aniello & Paul W. Downs. Before that, we talk about what we’ve been watching. Rosey was sick so her list is embarrassingly long, but you’ll get some good recs out of it and Avery is readying a non-fictional book that’s changing her life.

Next episode we’re diving into genre — why we like what we like, why we keep revisiting the same genre, what keeps us going, what turns us off and more. We’ll get into it.
