Jenny Wheeler: We're thrilled to have you on this Valentine's Week, and as I've mentioned in the intro, you do live in New Zealand in Hawkes Bay in a beautiful area, but you write international bestsellers set in many other parts of the world. Tell us how you got into this right at the beginning. Kate O'Keeffe: Got into writing you mean?. Jenny Wheeler: Yes, the writing. Kate O'Keeffe: Well, I have always been a voracious reader, and I imagine most writers will say that ever since I was a little girl. I grew up in a family with a father who was a business professor and published many books 20 plus books. So I was always around the possibility that I could do it. Of course, what I write is extraordinarily different from business books,., the other end of the spectrum as it were. I'd studied literature at university and I was a bit of a literary snob. In fact, I wouldn't read anything that wasn't a prize winner or a literary classic. and then one day a friend of mine handed me Bridget Jones' Diary and I read that and absolutely loved it. 'Gosh' I can read for enjoyment! And I had this epiphany where I thought, gosh, I can read for enjoyment instead of just bettering myself and reading the classics to make sure I've read all the classics.
This week Jackie and Danielle are talking about the 2001 comedy Bridget Jones's Diary with their honorary NMLF co host, Gwen! At the start of the New Year, 32-year-old Bridget (Renée Zellweger) decides it's time to take control of her life -- and start keeping a diary.

With a taste for adventure, and an opinion on every subject - from exercise to men to food to sex and everything in between - she's turning the page on a whole new life.

This week, the UK's seminal piece of internet regulation, the Online Safety Bill, moved from the House of Commons to the House of Lords after being amended. It now includes a provision threatening tech bosses with two years in prison if they don't keep children safe online. But it no longer comprises controls on "legal but harmful" content like racism and misogyny. Technology Editor Peter O'Brien explains what this means for the internet at large, and gets reaction from Beeban Kidron, "Bridget Jones" director-turned-influential online safety activist.

Katie and BRIDGET (Not Bridget Jones) run down the street in their undies as they re-watch the movie: Bridget Jones's Diary! It's a rom-com that surprisingly doesn't suck! Meet Bridget as she decides to keep a diary of her life over the new year. However like most of us though, she never really writes in it and just does whatever instead. She gets caught in between two British guys: Daniel Cleaver, a jerk who calls her a bitch for no reason, and Mark Darcy, a guy who may or may not be living through an episode of Sex and The City... Guess which one cheats on her! Over the year Bridget will find a new career, new love, ideally some pants, and hopefully a good lawyer who can help her sue someone for that inappropriate "home movie" during the end credits - Seriously should we start a GoFundMe page to support that girl's legal fees cause Jesus! Released in 2001, it stars Renée Zellweger, Colin Firth, and Hugh Grant.

"It is a truth universally acknowledged that when one part of your life starts going okay, another falls spectacularly to pieces." That's right! We're watching Bridget Jones's Diary, starring Renee Zellweger, Colin Firth and Hugh Grant. Loosely based on Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice, Bridget Jones's Diary follows a young woman's narration of her life over the course of a year. We watched this one on Amazon Prime, but it's also apparently available on Showtime. Podcast artwork by Anna Eggleton of Treehouse Lettering & Design.
"Snow exposes complacently a complete ignorance," says F.R. Leavis in his 1962 lecture on C.P. Snow's "Two Cultures." "The judgement I have to come out with is that not only is he not a genius; he is intellectually as undistinguished as it is possible to be." The boys discuss this devastating moment in literary history and also enjoy a bit of banter about how handsome Hugh Grant is in this movie we watched.

New year, new you? To celebrate the start of a new year we invited friend-of-the-pod Adam Densten to relive and recap the classic 2001 rom-com Bridget Jones' Diary. It's an iconic film we all know and love (especially Jacob): Renée Zellweger plays Bridget, an allegedly overweight “spinster” in her early thirties who smokes like a chimney, drinks like a fish and is desperate to find a man. Will she choose the cheeky sex god, Daniel Cleaver, or the stuffy, pompous Mark Darcy? We chat about all the indoor ciggies, gherkins, fatphobia & knickers that make this film a kind of 2001 time-capsule. Enjoy, Gisteners, and happy 2023!

It's the most wonderful time of the year...It's time for our annual Christmas Show! Joe and I have scoured the multiverse to find you some fun and weird Christmas traditions and hope to fill your listening stocking with these interesting finds. Have a wonderful holiday season and enjoy the show! -Joe and Jen Please hit Subscribe or Follow Click here to go to Jens Sale Closet Click here to go to our website Click here for The Ruiners Video Click here to go to joes' book from Team Wanderlust | 07 December 2021 Japan: All I want for Christmas is… KFC Forget the Chrthe istmas turkey. For many Japanese, traditional Christmas dinner is Kentucky Fried Chicken. Due to a combination of tiny Japanese ovens and a clever marketing campaign convincing locals that fried chicken is a traditional American Yuletide feast, reservations have to be made to eat at a KFC on Christmas Day. During the run-up to Christmas, Colonel Sanders statues outside KFC's Japanese outlets wear Santa gear. The chicken is served in special holiday packaging. Demand is such that an online service has been created: order your Xmas Family Bucket in advance and have it delivered. Norway: Hide your broom Norwegians believe that Christmas Eve coincides with the arrival of evil spirits and witches. It is only logical then, that Norwegian householders hide all their brooms before they go to sleep. After all, nothing spoils Christmas quicker than finding your broom in broken pieces at the foot of a tree, trashed by some joy-riding witch. Caracas: Get your skates on In the week leading up to Christmas, Venezuelans attend a daily church service called Misa de Aguinaldo (Early Morning Mass) Indeed, so widespread is the practice, many roads in the capital are closed until 8am to provide Christmas worshippers with a safe passage. Austria: Facing your Christmas demons In Austria, St Nicholas has an evil counterpart called Krampus. He is the bad cop to St Nick's good cop, a demon-like creature with one task: to punish bad children before Christmas. Men dressed in devil costumes roam the streets, carrying chains and a basket for abducting especially bad children and hauling them to hell. It's certainly one way to keep the kids off the streets. 5: Catalonia: Pooping their way through Christmas Locals in Catalonia create a character out of a log, drawing a face on it and giving it a hat. Then they spend a fortnight 'feeding' it fruit, nuts and sweets. On Christmas Eve, the entire family beats the log with sticks and sings a traditional song that translates to 'if you don't crap well, i'll beat you with a stick' until the log excretes all its treats. It's hard to comprehend why this tradition hasn't caught on elsewhere. They also decorate their nativity scenes with small, pooping, ceramic caganers (figurines). Usually well-known characters, often drawn from that year's news, the figurines always have their pants around their ankles. Greenland: A Christmas dinner you'll never forget Next time you find yourself complaining about granny's festive brussel sprouts, spare a thought for the poor tykes in Greenland. Each Christmas, they have to tuck into mattak – raw whale skin with a little blubber – and kiviak, which is made by wrapping an auk (a small arctic bird) in seal skin, burying it for several months and eating its decomposed flesh. Guatemala: How clean is your house? In Guatemala, cleanliness really is next to Godliness. Locals believe that the devil and other evil spirits live in the dark, dirty corners of your home. Therefore, they spend the week before Christmas sweeping up, collecting rubbish and then piling everything in a huge heap outside. Finally, an effigy of the devil is placed on top and the whole thing is set on fire. It's called La Quema del Diablo, the 'Burning of the Devil'. The idea for Guatemalans is to burn all the bad from the previous year and start a new year from out of the ashes. Ukraine: Deck the halls with… spider's webs? In addition to the standard tinsel, fairy lights and baubles, Ukrainians like to throw an artificial spider and web on the tree as well. The tradition has its origins in an old tale of a poor woman who couldn't afford to decorate her tree and woke on Christmas morning to discover a spider had covered it in a glorious, sparkling web. It's for good luck. It's not about poor housekeeping. Portugal: I feed dead people During consoda, the traditional Christmas feast in Portugal, families sometimes set extra places at the dining table for deceased relatives. It's thought that the practice will ensure good fortunes for the household. In some areas crumbs are left on the hearth as well. And you thought feeding all your living relatives was hard enough. Italy: Where Santa's little helper is an old witch Unable to conclusively prove the existence of Santa, the Vatican decided to throw its weight behind something they'd had countless dealings with: an old witch called La Befana who delivers presents to kids in Italy. The story goes that the three wise men invited the witch to accompany them to see the baby Jesus. She said she was too busy and the legend was born. Czech Republic: A pair of matchmakers On Christmas Eve, unmarried Czech women stand with their back to the door and toss one of their shoes over their shoulder. If it lands with the toe facing the door, it means that they'll be married within the year. If it lands with the heel facing the door, they're in for another year of watching Bridget Jones movies. Perhaps it's better than marrying a heel, though. Germany: Fill your boots On the evening of 5 December, German children leave a boot or a shoe outside their bedroom door. In the morning, if they've been good, they will wake to find the shoes filled with sweets. If they have haven't, they will find only a branch. Obviously, it is best to leave out the newest pair of shoes you own – preferably, fresh out of the box. Spain: New Year, new (red) knickers Here's one for the New Year. In Spain, it is customary to wear red underwear on New Year's Eve. The small town of La Font de la Figuera has taken the tradition one step further: a New Year's Eve run with the runners wearing just red underwear. Coincidentally, the town has the highest incidence of pneumonia in the country.

Veertien jaar nadat ze Mark Darcy heeft ontmoet, heeft Bridget's leven onverwachtse wendingen genomen... Uitgegeven door SAGA Egmont Spreker: Donna Vrijhof
In season 2, episode 5 - Rainbow, Roy brings Isaac to play some pickup football in his childhood neighborhood. Afterward Ted tries to convince Roy to come back to Richmond as a coach. He uses a bunch of different references from various rom-coms until eventually Roy tells him to F*ck off. As Roy walks away, Ted shouts after him, “As you wish.” The same line that Westley uses with Buttercup in The Princess Bride. Just like with Bridget Jones's Dairy... oops, we mean Diary - we decided we had to take this one line and make a full episode out of it! Besides, Michaela had never seen the movie and that had to be remedied. Enjoy our discussion of the ways in which the film (and the book) connect with our favorite Richmond players, coaches, staff, and ownership!

Also, who knew there was an extra S after Jones'? Silly British people!

Nashville-based singer-songwriters Carly Layne and Andrew Shaver join us for a special family-themed Thanksgiving episode to discuss the dark comedy, THE REF starring Denis Leary, Judy Davis, and Kevin Spacey. MNAM's holiday season kicks off with this Ted Demme-directed movie about a professional thief who gets more than he bargained for while holding a dysfunctional family hostage. THE REF was released to little fanfare in March of 1994, but has since gained a cult following as an unconventional Christmas classic thanks to its sharp performances and biting, profanity-laced dialogue. In a conversation slightly less raunchy, we'll pass final judgment on THE REF, and take some diversions into Bridget Jones's Diary, engagement stories, problematic artists, cousins, music royalties, Wrongfully Accused, blackmail, YouTube families, and much much more! THE REF is currently available to stream for free with subscription on Hoopla.

As well as that gem, we dipped back into Joanna's filmography to discuss other significant entries in her film career including The Invisible Woman (Ralph Fiennes, 2013), Pin Cushion (Deborah Haywood, 2017), Notes On A Scandal (Richard Eyre, 2006) and Bridget Jones's Baby (Sharon Maguire, 2016). Michael then quizzes Scott on how well he knows his BAFTA-winning performers. And we round off the episode with some personal wishes for fantasy film roles we'd die to see Joanna take on...

Join Alex and returning guest host Dr. Jordan Wagge (Twitter: @jorowags) as they take a closer look at the problematic themes and issues in 2001's Bridget Jones's Diary! A successful vehicle for Renee Zellweger, which spawned two sequels, it does have strong "romantic comedy" vibes, which includes things like fatphobia, misogyny, sexual harassment, and a lot more! Would it hold up today? Probably not, and not just because of those things — just look at how many people are smoking cigarettes on film AND inside!

Bridget Jones is smart, successful, and... deeply insecure. *Why* does Bridget have such low self-esteem?
As we wrap up our Rom-Coms 'Round The World, we're finishing up with an all time classic, Bridget Jones's Diary. On this episode we're talking with our favorite blokes and the only people we'll ever go to for Hugh news - Oscar and Diggory from Taking Hugh For Granted. Just so everyone knows, Renée Zellweger should've won an Oscar for this role and THFG will die on this hill. I mean come on, she sounded more English than some English people! We couldn't imagine anyone else crushing this role - NO ONE. That being said, Oscar and Diggory give us their best Texan accents and DORC is ready to ship them some ten gallon hats. But please, for the love of all that is good and wonderful, don't make Coni and Marie do British accents. Marie learns what an "e-boy" is and Coni shares her Pride & Prejudice collection to the group. Even though Coni does enjoy a great Darcy, Colin Firth will never win the majority vote with this group. You're going to want to listen to this episode, especially if you love bad boy Hugh. Only want to listen to certain segments? We gotchu boo.

Spoiler: it's the first one. The first one is better. The ‘Fabio' who is mentioned is Fabio Lanzoni. Fabio is famous for being, among other things, a prolific romance novel cover model. You can read more about him in the Guardian here: https://www.theguardian.com/fashion/2015/jul/15/fabio-confessions-original-male-supermodel. We mention the films Step Up (2006) (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0462590/), Magic Mike (2012) (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1915581/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1), 21 Jump Street (2012) (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1232829/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_0), Bridget Jones's Diary (2001)(https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0243155/), The Jewel Of The Nile (1985)(https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0089370/) and Body Heat (1981)(https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0082089/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_0), and the TV series Only Murders In The Building (2021- )(https://www.imdb.com/title/tt12851524/) and The Office (US version) (2005-2013)(https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0386676/). The gay rom com we have already covered on the podcast is Single All The Way (2021) (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt14315756/), which is the subject of our 11th episode. Next month we will try to watch Bros (assuming it is available to watch in our jurisdiction by the time we need to record) (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt9731598/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1). We record these episodes over the internet. Sometimes the audio is not perfect. We apologise for that. Music in this episode is by Martin Zaltz Austwick (martinzaltzaustwick.com).

Indie producer, film festival programmer, and fellow Maximum Fun movie podcaster Drea Clark called dibs on Muriel Heslop before the first episode of Feeling Seen ever aired. The movie has been a favorite since its 1994 release, and while Drea doesn't relate to every aspect of Toni Collette's iconic "terrible" wannabe bride, Muriel's journey to self-acceptance and growth spoke to Drea, both then and now.Then, Jordan has one quick thing about another story of the power of friendship...M3GAN.***With Jordan Crucchiola and Drea Clark

First Impressions: Why All the Austen Haters Are Wrong
Gentle listeners, join us as we review the storm-tossed 2022 Netflix adaptation of Persuasion starring Dakota Johnson and Cosmo Jarvis and directed by Carrie Cracknell. Described as "Bridget Jones meets Bridgerton," this unconventional take on Austen's contemplative, autumnal source material certainly made some waves in the Austenverse. But if you can manage to forget about the source material for a few hours, this is a beautiful and highly entertaining movie to enjoy with a glass of wine or four. Join us as we process both our agony and our hope: despite some reservations, we genuinely enjoyed this movie (but I wish they hadn't messed with the letter-K).
Professional actor Jon Hamm joins Scott to talk about his role in Top Gun: Maverick, his new film Confess, Fletch, and performing in a production of Ordinary People at the University of Missouri. Then, diarist Bridget Jones stops by to read some new entries from her diary. Plus, travel guide Steve Spinx drops by to share some travel tips.
