Hi listeners, we’re wrapping up this first season of Inappropriate and going on an indeterminately-lengthed hiatus. Stay tuned for season two, coming someday. In the meantime, read stuff, watch TV, and get ready for 2020!!! Thanks for all your support this past year and a half, truly, we love you guys.
The one where we talk about things that really should not exist including the new HBO documentary The Case Against Adnan Syed, Bret Easton Ellis’ interview with the New Yorker, and the Game of Thrones season 8 premiere. Plus recs and a shoutout to our new social media intern! Bonus points if you get the outro song reference.
The one where we weigh in on the Lil Nas X country music drama, a hit piece on Pete Buttigieg written by a Bernie bro trying out his close reading skills, and Julian Castro for prez. Bonus topics as we try to figure out how to FB the pod without Emily. Plus recs!
The one where we realize boomers might have PTSD because they were part of nature vs. nurture experiments when they were infants and maybe that helps explain it all, and maybe this is why they now need to train themselves to eat the same dinner every night. We also talk Miss Saigon-gate in Madison and whether academic panels are part of the problem. Plus recs! Good ones. Enjoy everyone, and good eatin’.
The one where we talk about the college admissions scandal and what it tells us about privilege and power in America, what we like and dislike about the Hulu show Shrill starring Aidy Bryant, and the latest presidential candidate with a name that starts with B. Also extra recs this week, and a call for listener suggestions!
The one where we talk about the heartwrenching HBO documentary Leaving Neverland, Gayle King’s stellar interview with R Kelly, and presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. With special guest contributor, and the saddest outro music you’ve ever heard.
The one where we talk about the art of dying in the Netflix movie Paddleton and Masha Gessen’s exit interview with Barbara Hammer. Also millennial presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg and as always our recs. Special ending message to the Bernie crew!
