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!
Welcome to episode 25, in which we kick off our third year with a special guest. Maya joins us to talk about all the things that books, TV, and film get wrong. She brings with her some scientific perspective, to round out our already fairly comprehensive litany of legal and cultural complaints.
Welcome to episode 24, which brings us to two years worth of content! This month, Les Filles discuss video games, video gamers, and the terrible things that have been happening the past month (months, years) to women in video games.
Music is food for the ears and the soul. We feed your soul (….that sounds appropriately creepy) with our Senior Music Correspondent (Or just Music Correspondent, depending on the timestamp) Ian, from A Matter of Taste!
Welcome to episode 22, where Les Filles talk about Sports (real and e), the Mary Sue, tartans, Snowpiercer, Game of Thrones, American Gods, the Supreme Court of the United States, and some douchebag named Robin Thicke.
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.
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.)
It’s time to reminisce about being a baby nerd and what we were obsessed with as Les Petite Filles. And also Le Petit Garçon, as we are joined by Made of Fail founder, executive producer and all around Starter of Things, Kevin!
There are some sound and editing issues, due to a lack of avocado sacrifice.
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.)
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.
This is episode 12, which means we’ve been talking your ears off about girl-geekery for a year. We had a bunch of topics that weren’t involved enough for a whole show, so this is a GRAB BAG EPISODE. Warning: expect tangents.
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.)
We are super stoked (like, SUPER STOKED) to have been joined by Hugo Nominated author Seanan McGuire to talk about women in Speculative Fiction, misogyny in the world and out of it, and swearing!
(It almost made up for the sadness of not having Kayleigh this episode. Almost, but not quite.) In important news, the Anglofilles are thrilled that NBC came to the conclusion that renewing Hannibal was the right thing to do, and we will be doing an episode on Hannibal in the fall.
