Gal's Guide to Gilead: Face Dot Com

Wed Sep 12 2018 (50:06)

Episode 1: Handmaids

Kelly & Molly, cite their sources--thoroughly--from the comfort of a spacious new couch! In their first explainer episode, they put the Handmaid in The Handmaid's Tale with info from the original novel, the Hulu adaptation, and the sardonic Margaret Atwood's own words. They also spend an absurd amount of time talking about Lindsay Lohan's farewell selfie to John McCain. Snag a shoutout by throwing us a few bucks on Venmo, recommend our Facebook page to your friends going through Gilead withdrawa ...

1998 Film

Kelly & Molly crack open the prize bucket to bring you sweet zaddy Dennis Quaid in 1998's cinematic masterpiece The Parent Trap. They dish about Nancy Meyers and her thrice-divorced 45-year-old children, Bruce Springsteen appropriating gay hookup culture, boat law, peak Lindsay Lohan, various basterdizations of the Salem Witch Trials, the surprising amount of f*ckin in this children's movie, Chessie's full name, Natasha Richardson's still-devastating death, and that thing with the Handmaid's Tal ...

Episode 2.13 The Word

Kelly & Molly get in a few last audible high fives, self-care horns, and Johnny Gunman jokes in their supersized recap of The Handmaid's Tale S2E13. They keep things relatively civil while discussing the finale in all its glory: searching for Gilead's version of McCall's, ascribing meaning to flowers, praising Elisabeth Moss' #1 line reading in the entire show, giggling at the young poop, slapping peepers on some excellent cinematography, establishing canon tequila drinkers, learning about diget ...

Episode 2.12 Postpartum

Episode 2.11 Holly

Kelly & Molly bite into the juicy tomato that is The Handmaid's Tale S2E11 (which is also an unexpected Holly Hunter documentary).

Episode 2.10 The Last Ceremony

Kelly & Molly renew the torture porn debate in their recap of The Handmaid’s Tale S2E10, which ranks pretty low on the fruit cup scale.They also get into it about poison pussies, whether Jesus likes Sex and the City, nylons, womansplaining sports, the Commander’s false chivalry, Handmaid gerrymandering, anger potting, and Eden’s cootie catcher. You Redheads remain worth your weight in charcuterie, and we cannot thank you enough for reviewing us on Apple Podcasts, hanging out on Facebook, and bei ...

Episode 2.9 Smart Power

Episode 2.8 Women's Work

It's difficult like 3 PM on a Monday afternoon as Kelly & Molly recap one of the season's weaker episodes.

Episode 2.7 After

Kelly and Molly are as disappointed by S2E7 of The Handmaid's Tale as they were by Meghan Markle's wedding dress. There are plenty of bright spots in the episode as they sound off on pansexual Lando Calrissian, Molly's Stromboli Bruce Miller impression, bringing back sexy Joseph Fiennes, the dystopian level of cozy in Gilead, infinite chances for naughty Handmaids, celebrity murderers, and Samira Wiley's Moira unlocking her MySpace account. Keep an ear out to see if you're among our many Redhead ...

Episode 2.6 First Blood
