Episode 28: Mo' Meta, Mo' Problems

Hello and welcome to This Week in Ladies!

Here's what we've got on tap for you this week:

  • This Week in Comics
    Lumberjanes #3, She-Hulk #5, Original Sins #1, Loki: Agent of Asgard #5 and Captain Marvel #4 | This week, we were inspired, entertained and amused by the ladies of Lumberjanes and She-Hulk. Plus, Young Avengers is back, y'all (in Original Sins)! And it's written by Ryan North of Dinosaur Comics fame, so you know it's good (let's just not talk about the art).
  • This Week in the Book Report
    This week we talk about one of Becca's favorite genres: cookbooks! If you like cooking, baking, looking at food photos, eating or onion rings, this is the segment for you! Check out our recommended cookbooks at our LibraryThing page.
  • Mo' Meta, Mo' Problems: Pop Culture about Pop Culture
    This week, we talk about movies and television that are about movies and television: how and why they're made, why we're obsessed with them, and the ways in which movies and TV influence our expectations and behaviors. TWiL favorites Anne Helen Peterson and Alyssa Rosenberg have also tackled this topic in relation to two examples we use (Don Jon and Pain and Gain, respectively) so if you're interested in reading more about meta-culture, you should check them out. Also, Flavorwire has a list of 10 Awesome Meta-Movies That Will Melt Your Mind (including some we talk about), and, of course, TV Tropes is all over this. Lastly, please enjoy this gif (hard "g," ride or die) set from Seven Psychopaths, in which Christopher Walken lays some truth on Colin Farrell.
