Episode 63: Impotential Liking (Q&A)

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 63: Impotential Liking (Q&A)

Hey, everyone! You ever have one of those weeks where you and your cohost both go out of town for a weekend and then have to bump recording up a day because you have houseguests the rest of the week, so you don’t have time to consume any pop (or not-so-pop) culture to prep for your podcast? No? Just us? Well, that’s fine. All those things DID happen to us this week, so instead of discussing a new obsession one of us has, we decided to talk about the thing we have both been obsessed with for a long, long time: ourselves! Thanks to the members of the Unabashedly Obsessed with Unabashedly Obsessed Facebook group for helping us out on this one!

Episode 62: A TARDIS Full of Bras (Sweet Gender Flips)

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 61: A TARDIS Full of Bras (Sweet Gender Flips)

About 18 months ago, Erin didn’t like the idea of a female Doctor, despite being generally pro-badass-female-characters. Well, we have a new Doctor incoming, and she’s got boobs. We unpack some of the implications of this, for ourselves as fans as well as on the whole, and also take a deeper look at the relationships between past Doctors and their companions and how  having a female Doctor might solve some of the problems we’ve seen in the past (and what new problems could now have an opportunity to arise).

Also, we talk about some other gender flips (“oh shit, sweet flips”) in mainstream media, how they have worked, and whether they have worked.

Also also, sorry-not-sorry for getting that song stuck in your head. Erin’s been singing it for three days now.

Episode 61: Hashtag Narcissism (Sorting Hat Chats)

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 61: Hashtag Narcissism (Sorting Hat Chats)

Hey, everyone! This week, we check out the website Sorting Hat Chats and take a really deep and serious look at who we are and what that says about which Hogwarts house we would end up in (spoiler: one of us is not who we all thought he was!). Erin says “deep dive” a lot. Like, so many times that listening back through this to edit it, she just really wants to go stab Past Erin in the neck.

Also, and this is very important: we shout-out Adam from So That’s How It Ends, but Erin is an idiot and gets the name of his podcast wrong. We’ll fix that next week in NCCs, but wanted to fix it here too. Sorry, Adam. Erin is an idiot.

Hey, everyone! This week we continue our deep dive into “Before I Fall”, this time watching the recent movie. Spoiler alert: The book was better.

Trigger warning for some discussion of teen death, including suicide.
