Hey y'all,

Here's our third and final b-road trip episode, in which we discuss the highs, lows, and WHAT THE FUCKs of Men In Kilts and The Wine Show. Mouse Rat rules. 

Lots of love,

Allison, Julie, and Janine

Hey y'all,

Rakes gonna rake. Julie's off for this episode, so Allison and Janine are joined by friend-of-the-show Amelia Buzzell for this chat about the live-streamed performance of Adrian Lukis' one-man show Being Mr. Wickham. Lydia's doing very well, thank you for asking.

Lots of love,

Allison, Julie, and Janine

Hey y'all,

We're joined this week by the GOAT Caroline Bingley and our new favorite dog choreographer, Jeanne Simpson! Jeanne talks to us about her experience on Wishbone, why she loves Jane Austen, and what it's like to choreograph a dance about learning to use the shitter. It's a very special episode. We hope you enjoy listening to our conversation even half as much as we enjoyed having it.

You'll hear more about these things in the episode, but here's Edith Layton on bookshop.org, here's Gotta Dance Productions, and we'll pick a Sunday in June to have a lil' Fitzmob.

Next week: Being Mr. Wickham!

Lots o' love,

Allison, Julie, and Janine

Hey pals,
Welcome to part two—part two! of three!—of our miniseries on the Wishbone episode "Furst Impressions." We're joined this week by comedian and actor Danny Jolles (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend), whose first comedy special, 6 Parts, came out at the end of March. It's excellent, and because Danny's cool as hell, it's also free to everyone on the ol' YouTube. Janine, Julie, and Allison all loved it, and they promise they're not just saying that because he came on the show.
The YouTube playlist we promised is here, though it doesn't yet include that Wishbone sketch, as it turns out that googling "Wishbone playboy" doesn't, ah, work. We'll update it when we find it and are feeling less scarred. We did, however, include some of the jokes and songs from Crazy Ex-Girlfriend we referenced, along with some other things. He's a delight! Watch them all, but especially 6 Parts.
Next week: JEANNE SIMPSON, MOTHERFUCKERS!
Lots of love,
Allison, Julie, and Janine

Hey y'all,

And now, our first impression of Wishbone's "Furst Impressions." The first in a three-part series. All on Wishbone's "Furst Impressions." This is not a joke, we really are doing three episodes on "Furst Impressions."  With only slightly further ado, enjoy.

The additional ado: you'll hear about this in the episode, but our next PP is Being Mr. Wickham, which you can see via Theatre Royal, which is livestreaming the show on April 30 and May 1. More details here. (If you don't watch, you'll still enjoy the episodes, we promise. )

Lots of love,

Allison, Julie, and Janine

Hey y'all,

Herein continues our coverage of the bro-ad trip shows within our purview, Men In Kilts and The Wine Show. As a reminder, last week, we started with MIK, episode one. This week brings our thoughts on The Wine Show's first episode. Next we jump back onto the Austen beat (what's next? WOULDN'T YOU LIKE TO KNOW) and in the interim we'll binge both these suckers, and then we'll do an episode on both complete first seasons. And we'd love to hear your thoughts! If you've watched either (or both), please hit us up in the Patreon comments, on Slack, via Twitter or Facebook, or however else you like. 

The next batch of episodes, y'all? We are STOKED.

Lots of love,

Allison, Julie, and Janine

Hey y'all,
Herein begins our coverage of the bro-ad trip shows within our purview, Men In Kilts and The Wine Show. Normally this would just be some jokes, but instead, here's a little rundown of how this will work. We're starting with MIK, episode one. Next week you'll hear our thoughts on The Wine Show's first episode as well. Then we drift back into Austenland for a spell to give us time to binge both shows in their entirety, and then we'll do an episode on both. And we'd love to hear your thoughts! If you've watched either (or both), please hit us up in the Patreon comments, on Slack, via Twitter or Facebook, or however else you like. Pay someone to skywrite about Matthew Rhys' hotness! You do you, boo!
Lots of love,
Allison, Julie, and Janine

Hey y'all,

This is your part two! Hopefully you've JUST listened to DCTP episode 2. If not, we think you'll have fun anyway. 

Lots o love,

Allison, Julie, and Janine

ENTHUSIASTIC LISTENING SUGGESTION, Y'ALL:

We highly recommend that you listen to this episode and the next one, which will post immediately afterward, back-to-back. This one's short-ish, the next one's not. They're of a pair and you'll enjoy both more in sequence.

Anyway, here's episode 2 of Death Comes To Pemberley, or the one where Allison tells on herself re: her teeny tiny crushes on Matthew Rhys and Jenna Coleman. 

Lots of love,

Julie, Allison, and Janine

Hey y'all,
Another dispatch from the distant past! Please enjoy our Matthew Rhys thirst (Thyrst?). Next week, you're getting TWO episodes—2 and 3 of what we're calling "Dick Tub."
 
Lots o' love,
Allison, Julie, and Janine

Hey y'all,
This week we talk to one of our very favorite critics, the great and good Roxana Hadadi (Pajiba, RogerEbert.com, The A.V. Club, etc.). She mounts a spirited defense of goth Darcy! It is a delight!
Up next: Death Comes To Pemberley.
Lots of love,
Allison, Julie, and Janine

Hey y'all,
More audio from the recent past that feels like the distant past! We have arrived, at long last, at Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. There's Pride! There's Prejudice! There are, you guessed it, people who eat brains! 
Lots of love,
Julie, Allison, and Janine

Hey y'all,
 
We're back, for real this time! Time-travel with us to January, when we recorded this episode with friend-of-the-show and costume expert Emma Fraser, who, by virtue of her whole lived life, is actually qualified to weigh in on the quality of Renee Zellweger's accent. It's a gem. Next up: Pride & Prejudice & Zombies & Matt Smith Jumping Really High When He Dances.
Next episode coming at you fast, since we're playing catch-up.
 
Lots of love,

Hey y'all,

Here's part three of our Bridget Jones's Diary extravaganza! At the end of this episode, you'll hear us say that our next episode is Pride & Prejudice & Zombies, but SIKE it's actually a BJD costumes episode. After that, though! Zombies! They're coming to get you, Barbara! 

Many thanks to the great Caroline Siede, our guest for this episode. We think it's one of our best, and that's no coincidence—it's because Caroline is very, very good at her job. 

 You can read her excellent column on BJD, the first in her series When Romance Met Comedy, over at The A.V. Club

Hey y'all,
 
Here's part two of our Bridget Jones's Diary extravaganza, The One In Which We Talk About Emergency Fuck Protocols. This is a good movie! We liked talking about it so much that there are two more proper episodes still to come, plus a bonus episode; it is many thousands of words and only about a quarter of them are "fuck." 
We hope you had a wonderful holiday/December, and that you're being kind to yourselves and using proper breath support whilst belting in your living rooms. 
 
Lots of love,
Julie, Allison, and Janine

Hey y'all,

Happy Holidays to those who celebrate and a Very Merry Almost 2021 to those who don't! Enclosed within is our gift to you, in a matter of speaking: The first of four (five, for Patreon members!) episodes on the rom-com classic, Bridget Jones's Diary. Listen on for our thoughts on patriarchal bullshit, the devious hotness of asshole Hugh Grant, and paddle-pools. 

This podcast, and thus all of you, have been such a huge and wonderful part of a shitty year. Thanks for listening. We hope you're well and safe, and so are those you love.

Lots of love,

Allison, Julie, and Janine

Hey y'all,

Ugggggggggggggggh, this is not a good movie. It's not even really a Pride and Prejudice adaptation. But we had a great time talking about it all the same, especially because we were joined by a dear old friend—the goddess, the legend, the reality television almuna, Elise Mayfield. Elise's audio cut out in the last few minutes, but she had just made a joke so good that we couldn't excise that section entirely — you'll know when you get to that point. Elise is the Development Manager of Birmingham's Red Mountain Theatre Company, and she's also the co-host of Terrific New Theatre's interview series Who's Zoomin' In? You can follow her on Instagram; she is the fuckin' best, and yes, her hand pies are good.

Back next week! Happy holidays!

Lots of love,

Allison, Julie, and Janine

Hey y'all,

Well, something had to follow our beloved BBCPPAE, so it may as well be the 1940 Pride & Prejudice Laurence Olivier/Greer Garson-starring adaptation, a.k.a. the one with the snack sleeves. Listen on for our thoughts on leftover Gone With the Wind costumes, Aldous Huxley, and sexy sexy archery.

Next week is the 2018 Hallmark "adaptation," Christmas At Pemberley Manor. It's not good! 

Lots of love,

Allison, Julie, and Janine

Dec 9, 2020

Hey y'all,

It's the end of the road (for now, at least) for the 1995 BBC/A&E miniseries adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, and we have thoughts. Consider this our farewell to Colin's calves (also for now—those calves are forever). 

Next week, it's Laurence Olivier and Greer Garson's turn! 

Lots of love,

Allison, Julie, and Janine

Hey y'all,

Please read these notes! You will need them! 

As you'll hear, this episode comes with a visual aid. You can find Keenan's PowerPoint here. You can see a picture of a bourdaloue here. As for our amazing guests, you can find them on Twitter here and here

Two other quick notes: First, you'll notice some weird audio things here. We had some tech issues but the episode was just too good to scrap over weird sound stuff, so please bear with us. We think you'll agree it's worth it. And second, since we recorded, Syfy Fangrrls, one of Emma's most frequent outlets, has sadly shuttered. (Media is dying, please buy a freelance journalist a donut today!) But you can still find her work, and the work of the other incredible writers who worked for that publication, elsewhere.

Next time, we wrap up the miniseries as a whole. Thanks for listening!

Lots of love,

Allison, Julie, and Janine

Hey y'all,

Are the shades of our podcast to be thus polluted? We reach the end of PPBBCAEnemesis, as it is properly known, and get in a few last dunks on poor Lydia. But never fear, this is not the end of our miniseries chat—two more episodes, and then we move on to the Laurence Olivier/Greer Garson film adaptation.

Have a SAFE, EXTREMELY SAFE holiday.

Lots of love,

Julie, Allison, and Janine

Hey y'all,
Fuckin' Lydia. (Also, please go ahead and ignore all that chat about our 100th episode; as you'll already have gathered, we cannot count.) Thanks to special guest Jennlander Drunklynn for joining us!
Lots of love,
Julie, Allison, and Janine

Hey y'all,

Please read this, if you have a minute. 

Our next episode was meant to be our take on the fifth A&E/BBC PP as adapted by Emma Thompson's nemesis. As you'll hear, things had to shift a bit. Don't worry! That's coming this week! But for now, here's our 100th episode.

We recorded this Friday night the week of the election, and as you may recall, that week was a weird one, and we were all a little sleep-deprived and emotional. So this episode may not be quite as funny as you might expect, but frankly we all got swept away by how much doing this show has meant to us, not least because it gave us the chance to connect with so many of you. So forgive us our weepiness.

We also, as is our way, prepared inadequately. (It's our brand, y'all.) As such, there are absolutely some people we forgot to thank. So please just know, from the bottom of our hearts, how much we appreciate all of you and the roles you've played in our lives, especially over the last year. Thank you to every person who ever guested on the pod, everyone who's ever donated or sent us a kind note or silly gift, who's come to a live show or told a friend or (and this is the big one) reached out when we were being idiots. It has meant, and means, so much.

 

Here's to another 100. 

 

Lots of love,

Allison, Julie, and Janine

Hey y'all,

Friend of the show Keenan joins us to talk about the fourth episode of the BBC/A&E adaptation of Pride and Prejudice. Without further adieu, please enjoy some wet-ass Darcy. 

Take care of yourselves, dear ones.

Lots of love,

Julie, Allison, and Janine (and Keenan)
