EHG 153: The Handmaid's Tale Has Us Seeing Red

Tammy Everts joins us to discuss Hulu's adaptation of Margaret Atwood's all-too-relevant dystopian story, plus Oprah and a Nonac!

New guest and old friend Tammy Everts joins us for a deep dive into The Handmaid's Tale: how it departs from the book, how it doesn't depart from our current political hellscape, and whether Rory Gilmore makes a good revolutionary. We went around the dial with HBO's latest Emmy-bait biopic, The Immortal Life Of Henrietta Lacks, plus a Thirteen Reasons Why update from Buntsy and a pop ad from Dave, and considered a (literally) shitty episode of Six Feet Under for the Nonac. X-Philes won, Chris Soules lost, and you'll probably be sensing a theme (for a second) during Game Time. Draw a ritual pre-ceremony bath and relax with an all-new Extra Hot Great.
