    01:15:43
    Welcome back to The Gay Tennis Podcast! In this episode, we discuss Challengers, the new tennis movie starring Zendaya. There are no spoilers in the first half, and we give you a spoiler alert when we move to the second half. This episode serves everything you could ever want in a movie review episode, including an analysis of the movie’s level of horny, an exploration of its deeper meanings, and a discussion of alternative endings that are better than the real ending. We also debate whether this was a gay/queer movie and we assess the movie’s tennis accuracy. The episode ends with listener questions and our responses, including our (lack of) homoerotic experiences in the tennis world. Follow us on Twitter or Instagram for more from us!
