Welcome to episode 48 in which Les Filles discuss their recently read, currently reading, and TBR piles. Set your wallets to Amazon, because we are about to add a whole bunch of books to your wishlist.
So little happened before, around, and during Rio 2016 that it was barely worth talking about. Don’t believe us? Just listen to this 2-hour episode in which Les Filles find absolutely nothing noteworthy to discuss. Well, maybe some people did well in gymnastics and others swam really, really fast, but it’s not like there were green pools, doping scandals, and a government in turmoil.
We would like to have a header image for this episode, but the IOC and/or NBC would sue us. Instead, imagine in this space some number of geometric shapes in some variety of colour.
Welcome to episode 46, wherein Les Filles reminisce about the books, TV, and movies that made these girls go geek. News out of ComicCon was discussed briefly, Ghostbusters was reviewed emotionally, and, rest assured, Pokemon Go was played throughout the recording, albeit silently. Not so silent were a laptop fan (it’s was hot!) and a nose-blowing husband.
Welcome to episode 45, in which one of the Filles went to Sweden, another survived the Brexit referendum, and the third lives in blissfully boring Canada. Also discussed are the Tonys and summer movie releases.
Welcome to episode 44. In part 1, it’s Russia versus Ukraine as we discuss the results of Eurovision 2016! In part 2, it’s Iron Man versus Captain America, Batman versus Superman, les Filles versus cinematic superhero fatigue!
Welcome to episode 43, in which we touch on some latest developments in the world of killing your TV faves and casting white dudes named Chris in everything forever, and then move on to our actual topic: reality TV!
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.)
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?)
Welcome to our first episode of 2016! We continue our annual tradition of discussing the TV and movie awards season with a quick rundown of the Golden Globes and an eye towards the upcoming Oscars.
For the last episode of the year, Les Filles take a trip down memory lane and talk about some beloved old fandom wanks, as well as discussing new trends in fandom and creator/fan relations.

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!
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).
Welcome to episode 35 in which we welcome Mikki Kendall, writer of the Swords of Sorrow: Miss Fury / Lady Rawhide special (on sale now!), to chat to us about writing comics and historical fiction (and, tangentially, about: vodka, politics, Duchess Kate’s shiny hair, and the pain of explaining Tinder to your aunt).
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.

Welcome to episode 32, in which Les Filles decide to class up the joint and talk about art, about which—us being us—we have many opinions. And also, dead bodies.
(We do not have dead bodies, we talk about dead bodies. For art reasons.)
Welcome to Episode 29, wherein Les Filles discuss adaptations- book to screen, stage to screen, screen to stage to screen again. Relatedly, Reidan saw Fifty Shades of Grey. There might have been rum involved.
Welcome to episode 28, where Les Filles discuss with varying degrees of rage about the awards season, the Oscar nominations, idiots who use phones in movie theaters, and Kayleigh’s abridged soliloquy on Bradley Cooper, bastion of cis white male privilege.
Welcome to Episode 27, where Les Filles talk with author, screenwriter, and Alina’s personal hero Diane Duane!
