The Galaxy is Ours
Space Bras is a bi-weekly podcast where two best friends discuss the intersection of science fiction and feminism. Each episode, co-hosts Kate Whitey and Mary Johnston unpack a genre they love and social justice issues that matter now.
The spirit of Halloween still haunts us this week as we continue our brief detour into the land of horror with Jennifer Kent’s 2014 film, The Babadook. So light up your Jill-O-Lantern and join your hosts, Mary and Kate, as they power through their fears, power UP their rage, and settle in for this spooky flick.
The good ship Space Bras is taking a seasonally appropriate tour through the land of horror/fantasy and the first stop on that trip takes us to Anna Biller 2016 film, The Love Witch. So grab a cauldron full of peanut butter cups and focus your energies this spookily stylish flick.
