She's The Man transforms Shakespeare's Twelfth Night into a teen drama about soccer and debutante balls. This week, Stephanie, Jimmy and Kirstin discuss the film, gender, and why they don't necessarily think it all works...

Stephanie is still too busy and doesn't have time to act as referee as Michelle and Jimmy lock horns over Kafka's The Metamorphosis (or, as Steph calls it, "the bug episode").

Stephanie is too busy and does not want to discuss Jimmy's idea for this week's podcast (aka the puppet episode), so in the spirit of resistance, Jimmy has taken control of the mic and invited the Queen of Fantasy (aka Dr Kirstin Mills) to discuss the new Netflix series, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance. Join them as they discuss duality, puppetry, world-building, and Podling rights.
In a proud From the Lighthouse tradition, Stephanie and Michelle give their verdict on the best books of 2019.
