We're not crying, you're crying! Ok we're all crying, right? A season that had many fans questioning everything about this show, ends with a finale that is a beautiful testament to what can be achieved when women empower other women to get shit done. Meanwhile Fred and Serena remind us that when there's nothing left to eat, the last two rats will feed on each other to survive. What a finish! Let's talk about it! --- Send in a voice message: Support this podcast:
In which we discuss the Waterford's luxury prison accommodations (wtf!?) and Fred's new gig modeling for "Private Prison's Illustrated", marvel at Serena's general lack of self awareness, applaud Moira as she reminds Serena of exactly who, and what she is regardless of hairstyle and clothing choice, we wonder what exactly Luke's plan was (what's in the binder!?!?), deep dive into June's big decisions, and try and figure where this is all leading. Enjoy! --- Send in a voice message: Support this podcast:

Hello guys! I listen to your podcast from Tuscany, where I live and love them! Just wanted to share this small information with you : the book Emily briefly tries to read is 'Maus' by Art Spiegelman. If you know it you will surely understand why it is forbidden in Gilead. Bye bye!

listened to your podcast on episode 10... will you please hire an engineer or a producer that would monitor your audio levels! All three of you were at different audio levels and tonality to the point where it substantially detracted from the programs enjoyment.
