Jennifers Body

Melissa Brinks published on

Jennifer's Body should be something we both like, but do we? The answer is, predictably, more complicated than yes or no. Join us as we discuss catharsis, rage, and subversion, teasing out our confusion (and some rage of our own) through a healthy dose of critical theory.

Warnings: This episode is explicit and includes discussions of sexual assault. Please listen with caution if the subject matter is troubling for you.
