Anglo-Filles Episode 42: So Much Democracy I Could Puke

Welcome to episode 42, in which one of us is exhausted, one of us is smug, and one of us is much more well-read than the other two.

(Hint, the smugness of an anglo-fille is directly proportionate to the hotness of her Prime Minister.)

Anglo-Filles Episode 41: Porthos just wants to punch someone

Welcome to episode 41, where Les Filles tackle the immortal works of Alexandre Dumas (père) known as the D’Artagnan Romances and the various cinematic adaptations thereof. Prepare your sword, monsieur, for we are about to duel! (Is it weird that books whose title includes the word “musketeer” are mostly associated with rapiers and epees and not, you know, muskets?)

Anglo-Filles Episode 38: You Learn Something New Every Day

Welcome to our third year of podcasting, starting with a mystery topic. No, a literal mystery, as in we’re discussing detective fiction. Was Murder, She Wrote a staple on your screen growing up? Does Agatha Christie have pride of place on your bookshelf? Join Les Filles to chat about some favourites!

“But I didn’t do it!” You protest. “Oh no, dear, I’m afraid you did,” Jessica Fletcher says, not unkindly. Her eyes are sympathetic as the police drag you away. (No, seriously, there was literally an episode in which a woman is innocent of the crime and Jessica Fletcher still somehow proves her guilty.)

Anglo-Filles Episode 36: Potpourri-tangent-palooza 3: The Tangenting

We wrap up our third year of podcasting with a between-guests palate cleanser, presenting a grab-bag of topics: Mads Mikkelsen at Fan Expo Canada; the latest buzz from TIFF; Benedict Cumberbatch’s failed attempts at a Boston Accent; Tom Hiddleston’s allegedly successful attempt to a southern one; and Tom Hardy’s apparently successful attempt at playing two people at once, neither of whom loved dogs (one presumes).

Anglo-Filles Episode 33.5: NBC Can We Live?!

Not only did NBC choose not to pick up Hannibal‘s fourth season, effectively ending the show, but to add insult to injury, they moved the remaining episodes to Saturday. Les Filles have many emotions concerning all of these developments leading to an emergency recording of our second short-form, point-five episode. A regular July episode will still be going up later in the month.
