Episode 29: Shrek


Join Viewing Party as we watch a film that is a Smash Mouth film incarnate: Shrek! This animated tale that every millennial has memorized leads to conversations on idealized relationships, body image representation, and which John Cusack is better, teen heartthrob or dreamy adult? Also, Katie sings great theme songs and Wesleigh rants about a font!
