It's here! It's Dudelander!

For those new to the fun and games, our seasonal Dudelander episodes feature Neal (Julie's husband) and Kevin (Allison's arch-enemy who is actually just her friend), two gentlemen who watch Outlander with varying degrees of enthusiasm. Usually, they're pleasantly surprised by some things and not by others; this time around, we're all pretty frustrated so the vibe is different. 

They're funny, and we got them wasted, and also we recorded this on NEW YEARS EVE, so don't be confused when we start singing Auld Lang Syne. 

Working through this backlog. We love you.

Kisses and Cherry Bounce,

Allison, Julie, and Janine

For this episode, we were live. We did it live. Live at Empirical Brewery, we gave out our traditional end of season awards, and we did so live and in person. Live. It was in December. We're catching up on the backlog, we promise. So... happy holidays?

We also got to see so many of you! It was wonderful. We especially want to thank Megan and Tori, who brought waffles as per tradition, the wonderful Wisconsin contingent — and in particular Chantel, who brought us hats she knitted which are so warm and comfy, everyone who brought  friends with them, and Jennlander Drunklynn, who came in from California (for reasons besides us, but still). It made us so happy and we were so touched.

Here we go! Love to you all. 

Lots of smooches,

Allison, Julie, and Janine

Hey y'all,

 

We got busy in weird, stressful ways, but we're back! We promise. Contained herein you'll find information about our live show at C2E2 this weekend, our thoughts on Tobias Menzies' new gig, where the hell we've been since December, some jokes about our collapsing emotional states, and all kinds of other stuff. We'll be back NEXT WEEK with new episodes and we promise not to disappear again.

 

Lots of love,

Allison, Julie and Janine

We did not like when. You've been warned.

Seriously, we know a lot of you listen to the show because we're enthusiastic, but enthusiasm isn't always warranted. Don't worry, there are still plenty of positives — we love Coinface always forever — but we were not super pleased with this one.

 If you're looking for a warm, fuzzy finale lovefest, join us Sunday LIVE at Empirical Brewery in Chicago!

Thanks to all of you for your support. Means the world, honestly.

Lots of love and quite a few Hamilton references,

Allison, Julie, and Janine

Hey, please read this note.

Julie and I (Allison) screwed up. This is a funny episode, we think — god, we hope so — and we had not one but TWO amazing guests, and we got to talk about Lotte Verbeek a lot, so, win. But we were vaguely dissatisfied with the show's handling of slavery, and talked about it as such, wrapped the episode, and went home happy. Then we woke up the next morning, thought about it some more, and realized that yeah, we screwed up.

The thing about white privilege is that it's based on the idea that white people are always centered in the narrative, and you can be "woke" and still be totally ignorant of the constant, insidious ways that society and culture sideline people of color in favor of whiteness, even in stories about people of color. So we sat our white asses down, accepted that somehow this story was about how Claire felt about buying a slave, thought for about five minutes afterward, and totally failed you all  — both of us as people failed, and I in particular as a critic failed. And so I'll say quickly here what we ignorantly and damagingly didn't say then: Outlander failed, too, and they failed hard.

No modifications to this episode, no additions. Just two white women who think they've got it figured out proving how far they have to go. 

We're sorry. If you're a person of color, we're especially sorry. If you have any thoughts you want to share — about the show, about our handling of it, about anything – please send them to podlanderdrunkcast@gmail.com, or reach out on Twitter, or whatever you like. If you want to come on the show, we'll shut our foolish mouths and let you speak. And if we lose you here, well, we can't blame you.

So here it is, and a special thanks to guests Ruth McCormack and Catie Kirschner, as well as to Helena, who came to visit us just beforehand, and to Molly Mullen, who provided some truly delicious Colorado beers.

And last, here are some great pieces of writing from women who didn't totally fuck this one up:

Kayla Kumari Upadhyaya at The AV Club

Jonita Davis at Black Girl Nerds

Kayti Burke at Den of Geeks

If you know of others, please share them below. We'll update this post and share on Twitter. And this post is and will remain public.

So, um.... enjoy the episode?

Love,

Allison, Julie, and Janine (and Catie and Ruth!)

Hi gang! We recorded a little late this week, but friend of the show Jen Moniz filled in for Allison and is brilliant, so there's an upside! Listen on for an unexpected impression and for Julie not firing Allison, because she's a bigger person than that. 

Lots of love,

Allison, Julie, Janine - and Jen!

Special guest Kate Kulzick (The Televerse) joins us to talk about ship lingo, splat sounds, actual violinists, and poor dead Albie, who gets a solid nickname after many drafts. We aimed for 60 minutes, so naturally it's two hours long.

Happy Thanksgiving from Allison, Julie, and Janine, who are very sorry that you had to deal with Jamie being such a dick this week.

So this episode is kind of... the doldrums, no? Still, there's plenty to get excited about, including a killer performance from Gary Young as Yi Tien Cho, some world-class eye-rolling from Marsali, and a rash of Kebbie Lebbie-related humor. Oh, and one other thing: it's our 50th episode!
 
Stay tuned for more this week, specifically for Patreon subscribers.

We sing The Association, make do without Janine (we promise it sounds good even though Janine was on the lam this week and also he edited it so it's OK), and sing the praises of our very special guest, Keenan.

Oh, and we spend a lot of time talking about that little Jamie-lookin' motherfucker (who is very good and probably an extremely nice young lady.) If you like Keenan here, just wait — there's a bonus episode with her coming out later in the week for Patreon supporters at the $5 level and up. For everyone else, it'll be out after the Outlander season ends.

Sorry, sorry, we meant #StartingAgain.

We had mixed feelings on this one (more mixed since that glorious glow of Hot Fergus faded) but had a hell of a lot of fun talking about it. We also, by complete coincidence, were drinking the most perfect beer in the history of beers for this one. 

As always, thanks so much for your support, for listening, and for sending us such wonderful GIFs on Twitter—and a special shoutout to you, Daphne the Starz intern.

Lots of love,

Allison, Julie and Janine

The ladies of the Drunkcast step away from the Outlander season one re-watch to offer some suggestions on other shows you might want to check out, including Grace and Frankie, Atlanta, and the best television show in the history of the world.

Sep 14, 2016

Well, here it is! The first episode of our Outlander season one coverage. It just so happens that it's also the first episode we've done hungover, which is fitting, as Claire spends so much of season one hungover herself.

 

A few things are different this time around. We're including a tiny spoiler section at the end of each episode, so if anyone's watching Outlander for the first time they can remain relatively unspoiled. (That said, we're only human, so something may slip past us every once in awhile.) Also, we're now releasing our content every Wednesday, unless you're a supporter on Patreon, in which case you'll get access to that sweet sweet episode a day early. Patreon patrons also get bonus content from time to time. Right now, it's access to our live show at Wizard World Chicago. The audio quality's bunk, but the jokes are on point.

 

We'd love to know your thoughts if you're revisiting season one as well! Find us on Twitter or Facebook and share your thoughts, especially if they're filthy.

 

In your face, Droughtlander!
