For the final episode of season 1, we keep it all in the family and talk between us about 1992's Wayne's World! Unsurprisingly, we mostly talk about Tia Carrere but we also find time to discuss the almost infinite amount of quotable lines in this film, hearing Jimi Hendrix for the first time on this soundtrack, and we work out which one of us is the Wayne and which one is the Garth.
We talk to Shawna Potter, author of Making Spaces Safer and front-person with War on Women, about John Waters' 1990 movie Cry-Baby. We discuss (among many other things), John Waters' foray into major studio filmmaking, the radical self-possession and sexuality of Hatchet-Face and the weird, sexy genius of the song 'Please, Mr. Jailer'.
War on Women are on tour across America this fall with Bad Religion and Alkaline Trio! Tickets are available now. Shawna also has a wonderful podcast called But Her Lyrics, which you can find in all the usual places and don't forget to pick up a copy of her book, Making Spaces Safer.
We talk to Alanah, Beth and Beverley from Problem Patterns about 1999's But I'm A Cheerleader. We discuss the lack joyous lesbian movies, the power of twee music and RUFIO!

We talk to Jess and Erika from Bangzz about 1997's Spice World. A movie everyone except Jess had managed to never see before! We discuss the importance of the year 1997 in British history, low budget but creative aliens that are somewhat triggering, and we ask the question 'What sports did Sporty Spice actually play?'.

We talk to Lande Hekt about the 2003 Jack Black movie School of Rock. We discuss the importance of just giving things a try when starting a new band, the under-representation of women in classic rock, and the genius of Joan Cusack.
Lande Hekt's new solo album 'Going To Hell' is out now on Get Better Records.
We talk to Rowan, Steph and Kara from The Crystal Furs about the 2001 movie Josie and the Pussycats. We discuss our worst show experiences, influencer culture as mind control, and how the soundtrack for this movie is far better than it had any business being.
The Crystal Furs' 2020 album 'Beautiful and True' is now available to pre-order on vinyl via Reckless Yes and Forced Exposure! https://www.crystalfurs.com/music/beautifulandtrue
We talk to Rebecca, Sunny and Stephanie from Desert Sharks about Baz Luhrmann's Romeo + Juliet from 1996. We cover its iconic soundtrack and it's importance in some of our lives, how bad this film would have been if the characters were talking contemporary English, and whether we think Gen Z even know this movie exists.
We talk to Kate and Amanda from Proud Miranda about the 1999 teen movie 10 Things I Hate About You. We discuss the surprisingly eclectic soundtrack, the creepiest of screen dads and how just many late 90s teen movies featured sex bets.
