37: Barbie

Reposted from The ‘Cast of Us, which you can find at: https://podcastica.com/podcast/the-cast-of-us

Here’s a little pinkified palate cleanser for y’all - it’s Kara, Penny, and Jason talking Barbie! If you haven’t tuned in to the cultural phenom that is the new Barbie movie yet, it was directed and co-written by Greta Gerwig, who usually does smart, character-focused indie movies like Lady Bird and Frances Ha, and we thought she was such an inspired choice for this surprisingly complex, layered, funny, incredibly beautiful, thought-provoking movie. This podcast is full of spoilers, so if you’re at all interested, we recommend you bust out your pinkest duds and go check out the movie first, and then come back and listen.

Be sure to check out Kara’s other podcast, Perfectly Marvelous, which is about to start coverage of Only Murders in the Building. You can find them anywhere you get podcasts, and their Facebook group is at https://www.facebook.com/perfectlymarvelouspodcast?mibextid=LQQJ4d
