This week Jessica is joined by a guest co-host to discuss Greta Gerwig’s recent adaptation of Louise May Alcott’s beloved novel Little Women.

We revisit our own childhood’s looking back on the 1994 version of Little Women we all remember watching growing up and consider what strives have been made in how Alcott’s characters are explored in her updated retelling of the classic.

Special thanks to our honorary co-host today from Louise May Alcott’s home state of Massachusetts.
