Happy Women's Week, we made a podcast! Pour yourself a drink and sit with us while we chat about classic chick flicks, Mean Girls and Bridget Jones, as well as the gritty world of Gilead. Are you ready for The Handmaid's Tale S4?
Warning: SPOILERS! Video contains some strong language and references to murder, rape and slavery.
Let me introduce my dear friend of many moons, Rachel! She's a professional singer who has worked across the North East, in Scotland and the United States, after finishing her drama education in California. We've joked about creating a podcast together for years now but 2021 felt like the right time to give it a go.

Our idea behind 'Two Artists Talk' is that Rachel and I both pay attention to different things when we watch films and TV shows. I can't help but study the costuming, set design and nuanced visuals on screen – while Rachel dissects the acting, character arcs and stand-out scenes. So, we thought: why not review some cult classics through a creative lens?
We wanted to coincide our podcast's theme with the international celebration of women. Of course, it's a work in progress and we hope that our viewers will give us some useful feedback! Please feel free to leave a comment. This project couldn't have come at a better time for me. Recording our podcast has seemed like closest thing to an art exhibition during this past year at home.
