Kill Bill

Our third podcast revels in the stylized violence, use of color and music, and overall baddassness of Kill Bill Volumes 1 and 2.

Podcast Episode Three: Uma Thurman takes on the role of Quentin Tarantino’s mostly-nameless anti-hero in Kill Bill Volumes 1 and 2. The movies chronicle her quest for revenge against a group of her assassin colleagues who put her in a four-year coma. We chat about which member of the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad we’d want to be, which one we’d want to sleep with, and which one wears the best clothes (hint, it’s Kiddo, and if you’d like to buy Blythe a yellow bodysuit for her birthday, she wouldn’t mind). Join us as we consider what makes these films feminist, what doesn’t, and why we do or don’t care.


Our first podcast lavished praise on the BBC’s The Fall, Gillian Anderson, and male police officers learning to be feminists. But mostly Gillian Anderson.

Gillian Anderson is sexy, strong, and clever in the BBC’s The Fall. While a serial killer hunts young professional women in Belfast, Anderson’s character Stella Gibson hunts him while she seduces colleagues, swims, and points out misogyny anywhere she finds it. She does all these thing while looking gorgeous and demanding that everyone appreciate her mind instead of (in addition to?) her body. She’s better at multitasking than we are. Wanna hear all about her awesomeness?
