Episode 48: Babe


Continuing Oscar Loser month, we found one of the most surprising titles nominated for Best Picture: 1995's talking animal flick, Babe. A trip down memory lane reminded us that this movie is a lot better — and darker — than we ever noticed as children. In this episode, Katie shares her theory for the Marvel Cinematic Universe moving forward, discover that Wesleigh knows a lot about Rugrats, and have a conversation about the awfulness of school shootings and our awe of Gen Z's response.
