We do not take a hiatus and will have more great content coming your way...dont miss it.

The hero of Season 2 Talks to Mayday!

Amanda Brugel talks all things Rita with Justin & Tiana! Sometimes you things just work out perfectly. We tried to setup this interview for a couple of dates but couldn't work out a day that worked. So we decided to do it so that it would release after the finale....and WOW did we luck out! Rita helps June get the baby out of Gilead and finally takes that heroic turn that we had all been wishing she would take. Amazing stuff! Enjoy!

Rita! You're the real MVP!

BOOM! There it is and there you have it! The finale to The Handmaid's Tale on HULU! Episode 13 "The Word" packed a huge punch...literally. We now know the fate of June and her baby. Emily finally has someone show her a kindness in Gilead, but not before leaving Auny Lydia bloodied on the floor! Serena finally comes to terms with the true nature of the world that she helped to create and learned the price for those that defy it. Meanwhile Fred learns that it's always the quiet ones you have to wo ...

Writer for E12 "Postpartum"

The Handmaid's Tale on HULU leaves us once again with no idea where the show is going. Episode 12 "Postpartum" followed up the highly emotional, very different episode "Holly" in which June gives birth to her daughter. Writer Eric Tuchman is a veteran TV writer with a history of writing for strong female characters. He brings us an episode in which things unfold and reveal the depths of the flaws in Gilead's society and the toll that it takes on all involved. "Postpartum" sets in motion events, ...

Do you owe Eden an apology?

We caught up with Sydney Sweeney a couple of week's ago to discuss her character Eden. The Handmaid's Tale brought Eden into the fold as Nick's child bride and has forced viewers to confront some very uncomfortable topics along the way. Sydney Sweeney joins us to talk about joining the cast after season one, what she thinks about those contreversial story lines and how she flips the switch from Sydney to Eden. Enjoy!

Dear Eden, we're sorry. Sincerely, the Internet.

With two episodes to go in season 2 June once again finds herself in the Waterford house for tour number three. Every relationship is full of moving parts and volatile emotions as we head into the finale with more questions than answers. We finally get the answer to "Who is in the pool!?" as Eden and Isaac play star crossed lovers and end up paying the ultimate price. Meanwhile Serena has what she's always wanted but it may not quite be what she bargained for. We also get our Bradley Whitford si ...

Race, politics, success, and resistance!

We could listen to Warren Littlefield talk all day long about television. The man is a legend in the business having resided over NBC during one of the most remarkable runs for a TV network ever. He also happens to be the Executive Producer for The Handmaid's Tale on HULU! Working side by side with Bruce Miller to deliver one of the most talked about, relevant, well produced television shows in recent memory. Jennifer White with Slacker radio sat down with Warren Littlefield to talk about succes ...

Here I am, come and get me...

The Handmaid's Tale on HULU follows up one of their most intense and violent episodes with something entirely different. In S2/E11 - "Holly" we essentially get a one woman show as Elisabeth Moss absolutely puts one of the best performances of her run on The Handmaid's Tale. As June finds herself in the middle of nowhere, having just seen Hannah and Nick taken away, she steels herself and focuses on the two things she can control. Herself, and the baby. The only break in the Elisabeth Moss show c ...

"The Last Ceremony" writer talks with us.

Yahlin Chang joins Mayday to discuss that gutwrenching episode of The Handmaid's Tale....because she is the one that wrote it! We try to get into the mind of the woman that created one of the most bleek episodes of television we've seen in a long time. Listen, learn, and laugh...no really...she's pretty great and funny and was a blast to interview!

No one knows things of God.

The Handmaid's Tale on HULU S2/E10 - The Last CeremonyThis was your not so friendly, or subtle reminder that Serena and Fred are straight up evil.Eeeeeeeeeeeeeevil.

O-T talks all things Luke!

Ok, we admit it, in season one we talked more than a fair amount of trash about Luke...and now we feel entirely justified! O-T Fagbenle joines Slacker Radio's Jennifer White for an interview to talk about all things Luke. Did he do enough? Does he blame himself? #TeamNick or #TeamLuke? All things revealed in our interview with actor O-T Fagbenle aka Luke from The Handmaid's Tale!

Gilead's Canadian Vacation!

The Handmaid's Tale ventures to the Great White North! Serena, Fred, and Nick take the Gilead show on the road to try and prove to the world that none of the horrible true things you've heard about them are true....but we all know how things end up with Stupid Fred in charge don't we? Moira, Luke and Erin lead the VERY unwelcoming party to greet the Stupid Fred and the gang and ultimately foil their evil plans as Nick delivers those Mayday letters and Luke finally "takes care" of something (afte ...

Janine = the real MVP

Unbelievable. They did it and we can't believe it. The Handmaid's Tale on HULU ends on a non-flashback happy moment! What an absolutely fantastic job by everyone in this episode. Yvonne Strahovski is absolutely award worthy in her performance in this episode. Madeline Brewer absolutely brings the heat and delivers some of the most purely human moments that this show has ever seen. Fred somehow ups his stock as THE WORST!!! Ugh. This show. Sarah and Justin are here to break it all down. Enjoy and ...

The effects of the bombing are far reaching

Who is alive, who is dead, and what will the repurcussions be?! What a fine follow up to The Handmaid's Tale on HULU EP6! Gilead is shaken to it's core by the bombing at the new Rachel and Leah center. Fred survives...hmm...but all is not well in the Waterford house.

So, lets learn a little more about Nick from the man that plays him. Max Minghella sat down with our hero, Jennifer White from Slacker Radio to talk all things Nick.

What just happened!?

Whaaaaaaaaaaat!? This episode is bonkers!! I guess we're dialing it up a notch on The Handmaid's Tale. Crystal Martin joins Justin as a very special co-host to breakdown Season 2/Episode 6 - "First Blood."

This episode features all the feel good moments we've come to expect from The Handmaid's Tale! There are showdowns galore, a trip back to The Colonies, some Commander frat house shenanigans, a mass wedding, and a bathtub scene that would make Stanley Kubrick blush and we break down the word "Pray-vaganza!" and discuss that ending....THAT ENDING!!

The colonies and the high price of compliance.

The Handaid's Tale finally takes us to The Colonies. One of the most anticipated things about season two has been this moment and it did not dissappoint. Alexis Bledel shines once again as Emily.

10: Let's talk about Episode 10: "Night"

Tue Oct 17 2017 (01:26:30)

...into the dark...or the light

Serena F'ing Joy! This episode starts off with a bang...literally...as things between Serena Joy and Offred finally come to blows. Serena has had enough and if Offred is not pregnant it could spell bad things for her time in Gilead. Plus we find out what happens with Janine, which leads to a defiant moment for the Handmaids. We get a showdown between Serena and Fred and no Scrabble board and male ego is safe from the wrath of Serena Joy. Plus....cuz we weren't really sure if she was the most evi ...

Janine has had it up to here...

Hey you know what Janine deserves? A nice quite vacation? Some alone time with the child she gave birth to? A hug? If you guessed D) to have her child taken away from her and to be posted at a new home far away....YOU WIN! Its a gut wrenching episode. Things are picking up as plot lines are quickly coming to a head. Offred and Mayday, Mr and Mrs Putnam....and Mr Putnams arm. No limb is safe as things are really heating up in Gilead! One episode left!

8: Let's talk about Episode 8: "Jezebels"

Tue Oct 17 2017 (01:09:38)

...does that lady have a dog?

Just when you thought it was safe to go back into Gilead! Wow. When Serena Joy is away Fred will play, thus we get our introduction to creepy, psycho, hellish fever dream that is Jezebels. The only not terrible thing that we witness at Jezebels is a lovely....if heartbreaking reunion with Moira. The stakes are high for everyone as Fred is taking a risk, Offred's entire existence is a risk, and the Mayday subplot just makes things even more crazy. So, you know, just another happy fun adventure in ...

...and you may ask yourelf, "How did I get here?"

Oh Luke.....Luke, Luke, Luke, Luke, Luke....you noble....stubborn stubborn man. This weeks episode gives us a big dose of flashback, foundation and....Luke! We find out all about the details behind the daring and failed escape attempt that opened the season as we follow Luke on his path to "Little America!" A great episode that shows the fresh residue of the Gilead takeover as it makes its way across the country. Luke's journey finds him rescued by a small group of survivors trying to make their ...

That's not my name...

This week they lighten things up a bit with a super fun party for all the handmaids. HAHAHAHA, just kidding, this episode is totally messed up just like the rest of them. Tensions are running HIGH as a group from Mexico, including the Mexican ambassador are paying a visit to Gilead. Seems they want to do a little trading...but with what and for what.....or whom? Yeah, its like that. We get more fun back story on Fred and Serena in the pre-Gilead era as it starting to look more and more like Sere ...

5: Lets talk about Episode 5: "Faithful"

Tue Oct 17 2017 (01:16:41)

The commander has taken a turn....a wrong turn
