Fake news, oppressive patriarchy, and an overall impending sense of doom: Join us as "Aunt" Kelly Anneken & Molly "Ofmitchell" Sanchez discuss this and more in Red All Over, a podcast that explores The Handmaid's Tale on Hulu, Alias Grace on Netflix, the works of Margaret Atwood and (weirdly) not current events.

Kelly + Molly give a proper sendoff to Aunt Lydia, Agnes Jemima, Daisy/Jade/Nicole, Bekah and all the rest as they cover the satisfying ending of a very uneven book. There's an Action Offred surprise appearance, even yet still more Aunt names, beeping vaginas, cheese salad, longing for the ambiguity of the Handmaid's Tale book ending, the Nellie J. Banks, Sims naming conventions, cisternologists, the return of the Rhett Butler argument, the power of cosplay, confirmed sexist arctic chair jokes, our inability to accurately tell our own stories and Margaret Atwood's character name fundraisers. Find us in all the familiar places: Venmo, Facebook and Apple Podcasts! See for privacy and opt-out information.
Kelly + Molly recall problematic times with Margaret Atwood, among other things, in their third recap of The Testaments. They get into it about character zodiac signs, Elisa Lam, grotesque descriptions of old men, the Bluebeard, how to correctly pronounce 'crayons,' winter ovesters, the truth about Santa Claus, Commander Judd's R. Kelly contraband, wedding dress montages, Aunt Lululemon and more warm milk. If you have time, hit us up on Venmo, on Facebook , and drop us a nice review on Apple Podcasts!

Get in loser, we're joining Mayday! Kelly + Molly are back to discuss yet still more Testaments-related topics such as telling the four Founders apart, being dead as a donkey, wondering who would hurt a pearl, the consisten badassery of Quakers, Carvel ice cream cakes, determining which character is the stupidest, Margaret Atwood's weird body shaming, who drinks what with whom, the Kesha cruise, Kyle Kyle's dress dress, super dirty martinis and endless cups of coffee and the joy of finally meeting a character who knows you have to drug the baby. You know the drill: we're on Venmo, we're on Facebook , we're on Apple Podcasts! See for privacy and opt-out information.
Pull up your dollhouse! It's time to talk about The Testaments, Margaret Atwood's Booker Prize nominated sequel to The Handmaid's Tale. Our verdict? Parts of it, real good! Kelly + Molly encounter the inevitable Professor Snape comparisons, discuss how to correctly cite Bible verses, explore Pearl Girls and the concubine cut into twelve pieces, compare the Aunts of Gilead to the Bene Gesserit of Dune, debate whether Gilead is a Christian nation, chastise Maggie Atts for a real missed opportunity to name a character Shannon, and recount some exciting swears. Feel free to donate on Venmo, we'll keep the convo poppin' on Facebook and your five-star reviews on Apple Podcasts are always appreciated! See for privacy and opt-out information.
Surprise! We've got one more interview for the road. Kelly had a chance to talk with her favorite Martha, Kristen Gutoskie (aka Beth a-the besto, she make-a the pesto), and she was a goshdarn delight! See for privacy and opt-out information.
Blessed be the finale, Redheads! Kelly + Molly's hearts grew three sizes as they watched The Handmaid's Tale S3E13. It's a strong finish to an uneven season, so they take the opportunity to get real pedantic about "mayday," worry about Gilead secret slime action, come up with a Steven Universe name for June + Janine, spot some Lush shampoo outside Soul Scrolls, explain how to make Lunchables from scratch, remind everyone that there are other causes for female barfing aside from pregnancy, make a connection to Toni Morrison's Beloved, brush up on dystopian party etiquette, gun for a Ferris Bueller crossover, hope that S4 will bring more a racially responsible approach to writing and casting for the show, and, of course, have one last argument about a very minor plot detail. You can still get a Venmo shoutout for one of our episodes covering The Testaments this fall, we'll keep the convo poppin' on Facebook and your five-star reviews on Apple Podcasts are always appreciated!

It's stress on stress on stress in The Handmaid's Tale S3E12, but Kelly + Molly are thrilled because their podcast inspired a woman to dump her wack ass boyfriend. They're begging for a Thug Life mashup for this episode, clocking textbook examples of dramatic irony, encouraging everyone in Gilead to just take a hit of that medicinal marijuana, reading croissants, wondering if Charm City Cakes survived Gilead, mocking the second-string Commanders, revealing the location of Chekov's literal gun, debating the morality of Stabby June's actions, trying to get an invite to a secret Martha kegger, hoping that Elizabeth Reaser will be back for S4, thinking about why war criminals get to stay at the Ace Hotel Toronto, buying Shonda Rhimes a new beach house and trying to figure out if there's pizza in Gilead.

Birth control is not yet a collectors item in this recap of The Handmaid's Tale S3E11 and Kelly + Molly are explaining some jokes that happen with their faces. Sweet baby and friend of the pod Yahlin Chang wins MVP for writing this season in a genuinely stressful episode with clearly defined stakes. They're not buying Whitford's excuses for the things Gilead forgot about, worrying what will happen to all the muffins, inventing Dick Cheney groupies, getting freaked out by June's Joker face, arguing about tampons in Gilead, trying to figure out where the heck Nick is, cheering for the Martha Mafia and deciphering who the titular liars might be. As always, if you throw us a few bones on Venmo, we'll give you a shoutout on an upcoming episode. Join in the conversation on Facebook and Apple Podcasts, but be prepared for some potty humor!

Say yes to the scone with our recap of S3E10 of The Handmaid's Tale! Kelly + Molly are occasionally jackasses, but today they're bringing musical research that will blow your socks off (Mozart fans: ready your pitchforks). After a brief discussion of the show's ongoing failure to engage with race, they lose their minds over dessert-based semaphore, dumbass eyeball closeups, Whitford as the Oppenheimer of Gilead, the challenge of watching mental health crises on tv, Fred's chivalry dick/plaid suit combo, Outlander sex scene watching strategies, world building we can believe in, how math works, Atwood novel throwbacks, missing the Canada crew, and Crotchwatch 2019. Concerned we're not making enough scratch from our partnership with Big Latuda? Kick in a few bucks over at Venmo. We love connecting with all of our Redheads, so check out the convo over on Facebook if you haven't yet. And last but not least, drop us a 5 star review on Apple Podcasts to fight the haters #chillnotshrill See for privacy and opt-out information.
Yikes P. Bikes, this episode scores five "yi-yi-yi-yi-yis" as Kelly + Molly connect the dots to baby first hospitals, solitary confinement and heartbeat bills. We're not a commander-friendly podcast as we watch Handmaid's Tale S3E9's drama unfold in a radical, experimental free-range hospital in Gilead. There are shades of Black Mirror's "San Junipero" as Natalie (Ashleigh LaThrop) makes her day rate for doing very little while June becomes an unreliable narrator for an episode. The gals Google through their thoughts to figure out what the 80s were like, marvel at the outsize presence Cherry Jones has in the show and read the new children's book An Eyepatch for Janine. If you're diggin' what we do here, consider dropping a donation on our Venmo page and come hang out over on Facebook. Please rate, review and recommend us to whoever you can, however you can!

Kelly + Molly are rooting for torture in this recap of The Handmaid's Tale S3E8, which contains the long awaited Aunt Lydia flashback! Don't be mad, Gilead made them this way. They're begging June to leave Carol/Natalie alone, feeling bored by everything in Boston, stanning hard for Ann Dowd's gorgeous looks, trying to figure out contemporary goths, wondering if The Testaments will be a way for Margaret Atwood to address user feedback, shouting out Ordena Stephens for a great (if too short) performance, wondering what the actual deal is with medical care, talking about Kim Kardashian West's grandma, explaining how to tell Kelly + Molly apart, killing the Doofy Guardian, predicting ridiculous series finale music clues and mourning the loss of Lindsay Lohan's nightclub in Mykkonos.

Get down with medicine in this recap of The Handmaid's Tale S3E7. Kelly + Molly are honestly shocked that it took this long to get an episode called "Under His Eye" and they're rolling out the red rope as they get into it about being Team Carol, the show's conservative fans, their wild excitement about Gilead restaurants, all the beverages by Sobe at Loaves + Fishes, the return of Grinch June, the audacity of drinking iced coffee in the dead of winter, Beth's zingers, a cameo from the Home Alone house, upsetting Sound of Music fantasies, anorexic Baptists, Alma's dashed improv dreams and the Horny Wife in DC.

Molly chats with Handmaid's Tale writer (and fellow Redhead!) Marissa Jo Cerar about female musical artists, how being adopted impacts her work and what was up with that convenience store scene in S3E5 "Unknown Caller." See for privacy and opt-out information.
Kelly had a chance to chat with Handmaid's Tale OG writer Dorothy "DForts" Fortenberry to talk through the latest episode of the Hulu series ("Household"), her take on Meloni/Reaser Watch and her favorite chick flick/form of self-care. See for privacy and opt-out information.
The Swiss are giving a ball and everyone's invited (except Nick). Kelly + Molly recap The Handmaid's Tale S3E6 and are thrilled to report that Meloni Watch has ended! They take a spin on the Handmaid's Express, celebrate a great bootist, fail to recognize almost any Washington DC landmarks, break down the Quiverfull movement, speculate about Gilead's hair removal cottage industry, clock June for making out with a purpose, wonder what snooker is and jam to some moody piano. This episode boasts amazing face acting from Elisabeth Moss and Ann Dowd, and everyone should always remember to hire Amanda Brugel. See for privacy and opt-out information.
Kelly + Molly briefly host a fruit fan podcast and a The Best Years of Our Lives podcast before they pick apart the least believable part of The Handmaid's Tale S3E5. They demand a backstory arc for Amanda Brugel, explain how there's only two types of men (plus OT Fagbenle), fire up the slut signal, gush over Yvonne Strahovski wearing pants, interrupt bits with other bits, remind everyone not to smoke even though it's a symbol of bodily autonomy, get trolled by Bruce Miller's iPod shuffle again, swoon over Treason + Coconuts, and get ready for their Harry Potter Sears portrait close-up.

Live from the past, it's Kelly + Molly (with a recap of The Handmaid's Tale S3E4)! In what passes for a "breather" episode of this show, Gilead gets strict again, we finally see some boys (who be likin' dinosaurs), the once and future Rory reunites with Clea Duvall and her woke baby, Fred wants Serena Joy to ask him to the Sadie Hawkins dance, Katy Perry's parents are thriving, Nick still lives above the Waterford's garage, Aunt Lydia's not ready to be back at work, and no one learns that you shouldn't ever invite the Handmaids to the party. Surprising topics include Vine compilations, the musical Carousel and lesbian comfort food.You know the drill--hit us up on Facebook, leave us some love on Apple Podcasts and donate some monies at Venmo. We'd also love it if you'd let all your pals know about us. Thaaaaaaaanks! See for privacy and opt-out information.
Cue up your "Whit's Greatest Hits" mixtape and get ready for the Transformers/Handmaid's Tale crossover you didn't know you wanted. Kelly doesn't know her own age and Molly's too jaded to be shocked, but like stalwart Marthas, they're really good at multitasking in this recap of S2E3. They've got some notes on the soundtrack (more Dido, Britney Spears and Amanda Palmer) and some guest star suggestions (Adam Scott, Margo Martindale and Tituss Burgess). This episode has it all--echoes of Alias Grace, Atwood-inspired dialogue, populism, gloveless fingers, binders full of women and the return of dumb, ordinary June. As always, we're here for you between episodes on Facebook. If you want to keep us going strong, drop us a dollar or two on Venmo and leave a nice review on Apple Podcasts.

We're at def con YIKES in this recap of The Handmaid's Tale S3E2 and even Molly's Martha face blindness can't put a damper on the joy of finally getting FACE BUTTER (kinda) and other treats straight from Margaret Atwood's novel. She and Kelly raise a glass of Serena Joy's Skinny Chardonnay as they call Jesus a couch surfer, muse on the mysteries of Mrs. Bertha Rochester Lawrence, celebrate the return of Sad!Luke (and boyfriend of the podcast OT Fagbenle), complain that there aren't any fat handmaids, hope for a fun hot tub night with Chris Meloni and Elizabeth Reaser, confront their old nemesis "inconsistent world-building," and remind everyone to always pay their bus fare.Can't get enough Red All Over?

"..If your Commander can't subscribe, rate, and review, see if Nick can do it for him!" 😂😂😂 My favorite episode of S1 I think. 🙂 Enjoying your podcast. Thank you, ladies! 🙂❤❤

You two are hilarious. 🤣🤣 I'm glad that you two pointed out that June leaving the commander in the room was weird..It wouldn't have worked..Having Moira's outfit be different was a bit of a bummer too. ..Oh Nick. LOL He DID need to chill. 😂😂 I will say that I WAS pretty disappointed with how they did this episode..It felt too short and it just wasn't the book. I WAS looking forward to seeing certain things...And, yes, the butter lotion..DOESN'T happen in S1..WHAAA??? Enjoying your podcast. 🙂 Can't wait be all caught up. Wahoo. 🙌🙌🙌

You two have cracked me up. Thank you. JUST found your podcast. JUST finished the book, and I plan to watch the show for the first time. Excited to listen to your podcast as I watch it. AH! You two are seriously hilarious and have made this book waaay more enjoyable. I would recommend your episodes on the book to anybody who has read it. 🙂

The focus on June’s mental health was important - yes, hard to watch at times, but such a valuable addition to spark thinking on how we treat *anyone* suffering with mental health issues - especially those who resort to violence as an extension of their internal anguish and loss of center. I kind of found the discussion on the episode to be shallow, unfortunately... there was so much rich material here to be digested and processed over time.

Ladies please! I'm torn between the fact I was enjoying your intelligent analysis of season three, episode 4 and being annoyed to the point of turning off the podcast due to your over the top giggling like two grade school teeny-boppérs!

you guys are so hilarious and I love most of you're commentary, but I truly wish you'd leave the political and religeous opinions out. I tune in to hear you speak about the show and to be entertained for a bit. we all come from diverse backgrounds had religeous experiences so cant we just accept that and move on? thank you for he as ring me out. :)

The 80s songs were an homage to the era when the original novel took place.

A week behind in Canada. Re: torture porn. No worries about (white?) men's sensibilities when portraying violence against men because its so far removed from their realities. It's fiction, not trigger. You said it;1 in 4 women. Rape and violence against women is far from fiction.
