This week, we welcome back contributors Shalewa Sharpe and Matt Ruby to discuss John McEnroe’s recent controversial comments on Serena Williams and the place of feminism in comedy. Also, Charles Hinshaw returns to discuss the new movie,The Beguiled, directed by Sofia Coppola and starring Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning, and Colin Farrell. And along the way, Radio Dispatch’s John Knefel explains the changing landscape of the conflict in Syria; a woman named Lea tells us about the time she embarked on a relationship that grew out of a moment in which she wasn’t acting like herself; and we’ll take an exclusive early listen to a performance by Oak House from an episode of BTR Live Studio set to be released next week.

Music composed by and show edited by Hansdale Hsu.
