#Shakesyear continues as Beau and Sammi discuss the early 80's answer to Romeo & Juliet, Valley Girl! This movie won our hearts by featuring an incredibly young Nicholas Cage at his most adorable, the incredible face acting of Deborah Foreman, and one of the greatest movie soundtracks of all time. Valley Girl was directed by Martha Coolidge, who also directed Material Girls, featured on our very first episode (but we won't hold that against her).
Beau and Sammi kick off #Shakesyear with a double-header viewing of Taming of the Shrew and it's contemporary counterpart, 10 Things I Hate About You. While Beau shares ex-boyfriend horror stories, Sammi can't say enough about the beauty of Heath Ledger.

Beau and Sammi return to discuss the movie chosen by our Rational Creatures contest winner, Crystal A, and they announce what's next for the future of the show.
Author Tamsen Parker joins Beau to discuss her vibrant new retelling of Emma, If I Loved You Less. They discuss what still makes Emma such a compelling character 200 years later, writing books our parents can read, and how baked goods are shorthand for love. Join us for this one, it's simply delicious.

Sammi and Beau go on the road to meet Jessamyn Leigh, one of the awesome women behind the new webseries-in-development, Rational Creatures. That's right, someone is FINALLY modernizing Persuasion! And it will be a diverse, inclusive adaptation! It is literally everything we've been asking for since the beginning of the show. Listen close for details on the contest, and make sure you donate, visit, and follow over at the Rational Creatures Seed and Spark page.
Beau and Sammi are back for an unusual outing. One very important detail to know before listening: You will need to have 2005's Pride and Prejudice queued up to watch while listening to this episode. Join us as we sigh over the loveliness of the English countryside, lived-in Longbourn, and Matthew Macfadyen. If you're tuning in for 2 hours of Keira Knightley snark, we've got bad news for you...
Join Beau and Adam as they discuss the 1940 adaptation of 'Pride and Prejudice,' a zany romcom with carriage races, pudding faces, and all the arrow euphemisms you can shake a stick at. Here the only thing bigger than the sleeves are the bonnets, Darcy seems to have a split personality, and Lady Catherine is a force for good.
