Hot off the press it’s episode 15! This week, Rachel and Arielle schmooze about sex cheerleaders, Hulu’s documentary Hysterical, and gender reveal parties gone wrong. The girls get Balls Deep into the studies that prove male feminists get more head, and that masturbating boosts your sex drive. They also dive into an Iowa court case that would prevent doctors in Iowa from requiring a man’s consent when women get hysterectomies. Oh, and don’t panic, but the Republicans are coming for OnlyFans and mobile porn. Next up, comedian Abby Govindan — AKA the girl who convinced Twitter she wrote Emily in Paris — joins the pod to gossip about her ex-boyfriends. Cured of dating white boys, the serial monogamist chats about dating Indian men and the pressure of representing all Indian American women on stage.

Friends: When the Writers’ Room was Sexist (with Abby Govindan)
Here's Where it Went Wrong
Wen and Andrew welcome the very funny Abby Govindan to discuss the 90’s, what makes a TV show problematic, and the Amaani Lyle v. Warner Brothers lawsuit that made us all question exactly what the writers of Friends thought Friends was about. Also Counting Crows comes up a surprising amount, but still not as much as Wen and Andrew would like it to.
A bold and brave pick from comedian and writer Abby Govindan - The Last Airbender is the M. Night Shyamalan directed live action adaptation of the beloved Avatar: The Last Airbender television series. At an abysmal 5% on Rotten Tomatoes, Abby defends it as "avant-garde" and we get into a surprisingly deep discussion on race in filmmaking. *Disclaimer: In the episode we mention that there is only one East Asian cast member in the movie, however there are a number of others who feature in small roles.
