RERUN – Episode #18 – Don’t Drag Your Feet

Today we offer you a rerun from the archives — an episode from May 2011 where we talk about the movie Hanna, Tina Fey, Chaz Bono, and most importantly, Nardwuar the Human Serviette (pictured at left with our own Cynara, her friend Aimee, and Randy Rampage, at the Penthouse Bar in Vancouver!).

+++
00:52 – Fabulous girl-driven action flick Hanna. We discuss all the reasons we loved it, while trying not to spoil it too much because you might not have seen it and we want you to!

16:00 – Tina Fey’s memoir Bossypants. Again, we give all the reasons we like it and also some advice as to whether you should pick up the hardcover, ebook or audiobook.

37:12 – Chaz Bono embracing the role of most famous transperson on the planet with a documentary, book and mainstream media experiences – specifically a two-segment one with David Letterman. Talk of how much we (surprise!) admire Chaz and also, via David Sedaris, talk about how scripted Letterman’s interviews really are.

53:20 – Nardwuar the Human Serviette, National Treasure. If you didn’t know about him before, it’s probably because you’re American and it doesn’t matter anyway because now you DO know.
