Loose Children (Licorice Pizza)

Loose Children (Licorice Pizza)

On this week’s episode we’re diving into the PT Anderson instant classic Licorice Pizza, only in theaters folks! Only mild spoilers, but we still recommend you go see the movie before you listen to this one.

First we catch up on what we’ve been watching, which includes MAJOR spoilers for the new Aubrey Plaza flick Black Bear, but we’ve got chapters now so feel free to skip on ahead. At the end instead of a Netflix Top 10 we look at Slate’s 25 most important characters from the last 25 years (caveat, ending in 2019). There’s some goodies and some randos.

Next week we're chatting about female friendships in movies and tv, and STAY TUNED FOR A SPECIAL MINISODE! Yellowjackets watch-along episode 1 drops this Friday 2/4. BUZZ BUZZ!
