The Queen died last Thursday on the 8th September and, as you'd expect, Twitter lit up with tributes from dignitaries from around the globe and tweets from millions of people expressing heartfelt sadness and grief. Then, as the days went by a lot of it sort of transcended into some absolute sheer, solid lunacy. Reporters who'd been on duty for hours started scraping the barrel for both superlatives and stories, fights between republicans and monarchists broke out and certain media figures started competing to show who was mourning privately hardest, in a way that could hardly be described as private given it was posted all over twitter.Marina and Jemma also discussed Liz Truss' biggest donor, fracking, Rees-Mogg, and debate whether this week's Lord of the Week could be a future PM.Snigger warning: Contains mentions of bare bottoms.Seen a great tweet?

Essayist, humor writer, and editor Elissa Bassist joins Zerlina on the show to talk about her new book HYSTERICAL: A Memoir, out now!HYSTERICAL: A Memoir by Elissa Bassist, editor extraordinaire of The Rumpus's “Funny Women” column, was born out of frustration over living in a society where men control storytelling, news, Silicon Valley, reproductive rights, and far too many conversations, and where woman are called crazy for experiencing emotion, second-guessed, demeaned, and threatened for speaking up, and then shamed for what they did or didn't say. HYSTERICAL is Elissa's story of how repressing her voice made her physically ill for over two years and her call for women to unmute their voice, listen to it above all others, and use it again without regret. Kirkus call HYSTERICAL “a sharp examination of life in ‘a culture where men speak and women shut up'... [Bassist's] memoir stands as proof of an arduous process of healing. A fiery cultural critique.” And if that hasn't convinced you to cover this book, here's just a taste of Elissa's brilliant writing: “Despite the rumors, it isn't so easy to just speak up. Since women are trained to disappear while being looked at constantly, we become our first and greatest critics and censors— so, speaking up for ourselves is not how we learn English. Instead, we're fluent in Giggle, in Question Mark, in Self-Deprecation, in Asking for It, in Miscommunication, in Bowing Down. These are all really different silences— we speak, but exclusively in compliments (‘Your sexism is so well said') and in apologies.” Elissa Bassist is an essayist, humor writer, and editor of the “Funny Women” column on The Rumpus. As a founding contributor to The Rumpus, she's written cultural, feminist, and personal criticism since the website launched in 2009. Her writing has appeared in The New York Times, Marie Claire, Creative Nonfiction, The New Yorker, Longreads, and more, including the anthology Not That Bad: Dispatches from Rape Culture, edited by Roxane Gay. Currently, she teaches writing at The New School, Catapult, 92nd Street Y, and Lighthouse Writers Workshop. She lives in Brooklyn and is probably her therapist's favorite.
Orphan: First Kill is an incorrectly titled prequel to the cult classic Orphan. I say that because if you're expecting this to be the film that establishes Esther's interest in murder and dad-fetishes, you're not going to get that.

Hey Everyone, Angela Bowen here, the host of She's A Small Wonder: A Small Wonder Podcast. Today, I covered S2E20: Look Into My Eyes, which aired on February 21, 1987. In this episode Joan's high-school friend is not what Ted expects. Thanks to this synopsis, I spend a good half of this episode confused because what I'm seeing in this episode has nothing to do with the synopsis. IMDB has never steered me wrong, until now. This episode is actually about Vicki taking what she has seen on TV (a hypnotist) and applying it to real life. This episode, I've got to say is one of the funniest episodes of this show I have ever covered since starting this podcast. We see the actors (The Lawson Family) acting outside of how their characters would normally act (thanks to Vicki impersonating Mr. Renaldo (the hypnotist) or whatever the guy's name was). We also seen the return of Mrs. Fernwald (this won't be the last time we see her either). She's come to check in with Vicki and to see how she's adjusting after being with the Lawson's for a year. Also she tells them they're being awarded for being to adoptive family or the year or something, so she invites a name to video the Lawson's receiving the award. Thanks to Vicki turning everyone into someone they're not, Ted becomes a monkey, Joan a woman of the night (vamp), Jamie a baby and Mrs. Fernwald a woman who dances the tango. Even the old man with the videotape, Vicki turns him into a dog. Hysterical episode! Join me next month when I cover S2E21: Wally The Wimp, which aired on February 28, 1987. In this episode Pro-wrestler, Jesse Ventura, is invited to the Lawson house for dinner. He has a surprise for Ted, as years before he was the nerdy little kid named Wally who Ted teased in college. Have a great September everyone!

Have you ever felt such strong emotions after a situation and wanted to respond in that moment because you thought the feelings were due to that specific moment? Me too! However, this episode explains that if you are hysterical (in this case, have intense feelings), then you you are not being activated by what happed right in front of you rather than something that happened in the past.

HYSTERICAL was the winner of BEST FEATURE FILM at the June 2022 Toronto COMEDY Film Festival. `https://www.emmaspeer.me/hysterical https://www.instagram.com/hystericalpotatoes “Hysterical is a film-adaptation of a one-woman theatre performance. The stem-level plot is this: a girl-woman lost her uterus and sorts through her mind-farm-memories to find it. On a deeper level, the show explores intergenerational womanhood and inherited trauma. It weaves together themes of independence, institutionalized mental health, the female body and its policing, fertility, immigration, and growth to present to you, the audience, an unintentional coming-of-age tale for and of us all, just trying to do the best we can with what we have.” Conversation with the creator and star Emma Spear on the making of the film. From what was supposed to be a one-woman show, turns into a feature film during the Covid era. WATCH this film next month.
