The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: All Pleasure, No Guilt

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: All Pleasure, No Guilt

April 1, 2019

The Real Housewives is one of Becky’s go-to reality TV shows to help her relax and unwind. She had Ben watch several episodes of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Ben … does not watch that much reality TV, and definitely doesn’t watched Real Housewives. Until now.

Spoiler alert!

Note: Although Becky mentions at the beginning that she had Ben watch episodes of The Real Housewives of New York as well, we don’t end up discussing those. Stay tuned for a future episode with more reality TV talk.

Ben and Becky both love Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and over the past year and a half, they rewatched it together, first when cooking together at Ben’s house, then via video chat after Becky moved to Montreal.

This episode is a free-for-all discussion of all things Buffy. We talk about favourite seasons and episodes, emotional moments, Angel vs Spike, and Buffy’s overall character arc. Thanks to those of our listeners who left comments on our Facebook page!

Why We Love Holly Bourne

Why We Love Holly Bourne

January 14, 2019

We discuss Holly Bourne, a British author whose books Ben has constantly been lending to Becky for the past few years.

Bourne writes about feminism, mental illness, and relationships—both healthy and unhealthy. Her YA series Spinster Club follows three young women as they struggle with these things. Her adult novel, How Do You Like Me Now?, is about a woman on the brink of 30 still struggling with similar things.

We break down our thoughts on these books, why we love them so much, and which parts we could most relate to.

You can read Ben’s reviews of Am I Normal Yet? (with links to the subsequent books) and How Do You Like Me Now? on Goodreads.
