13: "Border" (S5E3)

A bit of a quieter episode this week, but no less enthralling, with events that we suspect will loom large over the remainder of the series, like June connecting with a certain rebellious group and Serena getting a new job. Plus, some fireworks between Serena and Mark (so you know Wendy is happy). ...

12: "Ballet" (S5E2)

How does Serena seem to conduct everyone in two countries like an orchestra? Oy. She’s so bad (and we're counting the days until she gets her comeuppance). Join us! You can find our contact info and all our other shows at: podcastica.com   Daphne, Wendy, and Jason would all appreciate it if you...

10: Bruce Miller (Showrunner of The Handmaid's Tale)

We’re beyond thrilled to welcome The Handmaid’s Tale showrunner Bruce Miller to the podcast. Unsurprisingly, he was a pleasure to talk to, and of course had a lot of fascinating things to say about the making of this incredible show. A few of the things we talked about: • Margaret Atwood’s involvem...

9: "The Wilderness" (S4E10)

Wow. WOW! What an incredibly intense finale. Dark? Yes. Cathartic?

7: "Testimony" (S4E8)

So fascinating to see how June’s presence in Canada impacts the people around her — Luke, Fred & Serena, Emily and the women of the support group. Even with June safely out of Gilead, the show is as captivating — and troubling — as ever, with no easy answers, but lots to talk about. Contact us:...

6: "Home" (S4E7)

Another intense, incredible, unpredictable episode this week. At times way darker than we realized it would be once June got to Canada (but we should have known, right?), and of course there was that immensely satisfying scene we’ve all been waiting for. At last, indeed. Contact us: podcastica.com/...
