The time has come to talk about You. (Not you, specifically. Sorry! But You the little-watched Liftetime series turned Netflix hit.) Over the course of two seasons, You has crafted a fascinating phycological thriller that turns the typical boy meets girl romance on its head. Join Keli and Alice as they talk about all the things that make this show compelling, including Penn Badgley's willingness to lean into his Gossip Girl roots, and his refusal to let the internet romanticize his character.
Looking for a good romance, but can't be expected to date right now? Keli and Alice have the answer! Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston! (It's the classic story of boy meets other boy, boy hates other boy, boy pushes other boy into a cake.) Join Keli and Alice as they talk about everything that makes this romance great and the importance of a happily ever after.
Keli and Alice have more thoughts on the Black Lives Matter movement and our national reckoning with racial injustice. This short provides some extra content and recommendations that we wanted to share with you all. (Essentially all the things we wanted to include in our last episode, but cut to keep it from being 90 minutes long.)
BLACK LIVES MATTER. And including Black voices in your media consumption is important. That's why Alice & Keli will spend this episode trying to help you be the Michelle Williams of white ally-ship by highlighting Black creators and giving recommendations for books, Tv shows, movies, and more for you to enjoy. (Warning: may include titles from all those anti-reading racist reading lists going around, but also several other bangers you might not have heard of yet.)
Are we taking crazy pills here or is Normal People actually not that good? In this episode, Alice and Keli talk about the novel Normal People and its recent Hulu adaptation. Join us as we try to figure out what "normal people" love about an Irish couple that can't communicate.
The girls are back in town! SnarkNotes returns for Season 3. First up, Isolationism. Living off the grid. Doomsday theories. No, it's not an episode about coronavirus. It's Educated by Tara Westover. Essential oils not included.
We live in a golden age of television. From Mad Men to Breaking Bad to Games of Thrones—the sheer amount of great content can be daunting. What do you watch first when there are only so many hours in a day? Luckily Keli and Alice have found the greatest show of all time. Find Me In Paris has it all—romance, time travel, dancing—not to mention a steampunk Draco Malfoy and a magical brick.
SnarkNotes has its first ever guest star! Keli’s mom – the wonderful Cheryl Gillespie – joins the podcast to talk about Compassionate Journey: Honoring Our Mothers’ Stories, a book she wrote with four other Maine women. In it, Cheryl bravely discusses her complicated relationship with her mother, and what she learned when she started looking for a letter that may never have existed. Tune in to learn more!
Gather round Snarknotes listeners! The time has come to get educational. Did you know that two women can talk about something other than a man? It's true! It happens every day! (Shocking, we know.) Women have depth. Women have range. Women cannot be replaced with sexy lamps!
