Anglo-Filles Episode 21: Some of Draculae, all of Draculbee

We never drink….wine.

(that’s not true, we drink a lot of wine.)

Welcome to Episode 21, where we shanghai in Dame Cleolinda Jones to discuss all things Dracula! There’s also the moment in which we broke Cleolinda, just as she breaks Twilight Noobs. It’s delightful.

Anglo-Filles Episode 20: Strong, feisty, and failing the sisterhood

Welcome to episode 20, where Les Filles discuss “strong female characters” and the problems therein, with entertaining side jaunts down Comic Book Way, treatment of women in media including Hannibal, Game of Thrones, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and a patented Kayleigh Rant on The Following.

(I looked long and hard for the right image, and Maria’s headshake of disappointment seemed to fit.)

(But this works too.)

REPOST Anglo-Filles Episode 13: Oh my god it effing rhymes

Greetings, listeners! Fear not, a proper episode is still coming to you in February, for we have many, many thoughts about the Olympics and some of them are even about topics other than the ranking order of Olympic figure skaters’ behinds.

Meanwhile, Hannibal season 2 has a premier date of February 28th. The fannibals are preparing to feast, the only question is will you be a dinner guest or will you be dinner?

You have 2 weeks to catch up on season 1, and to help convince you that you should, here is the episode we recorded last October with the ever-gracious Cleolinda as our guest.

Welcome to Episode 15 of AngloFilles, wherein Les Filles are joined by Sarah Wendell of Smart Bitches, Trashy Books to discuss the romance genre!

(Just as a note: the conversation turns somewhat explicit at about 1:10 when we start discussing erotica. Just in case you’re listening at work or with a small child who might wonder out loud in an inopportune place what the deal with triceratops tongues is.)

A special report from our Senior TIFF Correspondent

Les Filles are grateful to Peter Murphy for his time and insight. Some of Les Filles would like to note that unlike some others, Peter is not a scrub and takes advantage of living in Toronto and having the privilege of being able to go to TIFF and see all these wonderful films. Meanwhile, Alina is a scrub and feels bad and promises to mend the error of her ways.

Anglo-Filles Episode 11: You didn’t complain when Watson was a mouse

Sorry this episode is later than usual- we originally recorded a week later than we’d normal do, thanks to nutty schedules, and then the Podcast Gods were angry about something, so we rescheduled, and an avocado was sacrificed, and WE’RE BACK AND BETTER THAN EVER.

Sherlock Holmes has been a part of the cultural consciousness since his inception, and Les Filles discuss (with varying levels of squee) several of them.

(There are spoilers for the end of Elementary at around the 1h45min to 1h55min mark. Proceed at your own risk.)
