Season 4, Ep. 22
Kelly + Molly give a proper sendoff to Aunt Lydia, Agnes Jemima, Daisy/Jade/Nicole, Bekah and all the rest as they cover the satisfying ending of a very uneven book. There's an Action Offred surprise appearance, even yet still more Aunt names, beeping vaginas, cheese salad, longing for the ambiguity of the Handmaid's Tale book ending, the Nellie J. Banks, Sims naming conventions, cisternologists, the return of the Rhett Butler argument, the power of cosplay, confirmed sexist arctic chair jokes, our inability to accurately tell our own stories and Margaret Atwood's character name fundraisers.

Kelly contraband, wedding dress montages, Aunt Lululemon and more warm milk. If you have time, hit us up onVenmo, onFacebook, and drop us a nice review onApple Podcasts!
Testaments Book Recap 2: Oh My Garth
Season 4, Ep. 20
Get in loser, we're joining Mayday! Kelly + Molly are back to discuss yet still more Testaments-related topics such as telling the four Founders apart, being dead as a donkey, wondering who would hurt a pearl, the consisten badassery of Quakers, Carvel ice cream cakes, determining which character is the stupidest, Margaret Atwood's weird body shaming, who drinks what with whom, the Kesha cruise, Kyle Kyle's dress dress, super dirty martinis and endless cups of coffee and the joy of finally meeting a character who knows you have to drug the baby.

Testaments Book Recap 1: F*ck You, Brother!
Season 4, Ep. 19
Pull up your dollhouse! It's time to talk about The Testaments, Margaret Atwood's Booker Prize nominated sequel to The Handmaid's Tale. Our verdict? Parts of it, real good! Kelly + Molly encounter the inevitable Professor Snape comparisons, discuss how to correctly cite Bible verses, explore Pearl Girls and the concubine cut into twelve pieces, compare the Aunts of Gilead to the Bene Gesserit of Dune, debate whether Gilead is a Christian nation, chastise Maggie Atts for a real missed opportunity to name a character Shannon, and recount some exciting swears.

Handmaid's Tale Hulu Recap 36: Exploratory Backchat
Season 4, Ep. 17
Blessed be the finale, Redheads! Kelly + Molly's hearts grew three sizes as they watched The Handmaid's Tale S3E13. It's a strong finish to an uneven season, so they take the opportunity to get real pedantic about "mayday," worry about Gilead secret slime action, come up with a Steven Universe name for June + Janine, spot some Lush shampoo outside Soul Scrolls, explain how to make Lunchables from scratch, remind everyone that there are other causes for female barfing aside from pregnancy, make a connection to Toni Morrison's Beloved, brush up on dystopian party etiquette, gun for a Ferris Bueller crossover, hope that S4 will bring more a racially responsible approach to writing and casting for the show, and, of course, have one last argument about a very minor plot detail. You can still get a Venmo shoutout for one of our episodes covering The Testaments this fall, we'll keep the convo poppin' on Facebookand your five-star reviews onApple Podcastsare always appreciated!
