Our thanks to Viviana Ortiz who created the episode artwork and allowed us to use it.

Want a movie that simultaneously makes you think about revenge and forgiveness, sex and consent, men and women AND romcoms? “Promising Young Woman” is director/writer Emerald Fennel’s Oscar-winning movie, and you guys. We have BIG THOUGHTS about what it has to say to us today. Jess & Devi talk through the major plot points, tracking Cassie’s choices in light of purity culture and what the broader culture says to us about sex.
