S3 E1: Educated

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.

SnarkNotes Short: Find Me In Paris

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.

S2 E8: Compassionate Journey

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!

S2 E7: The Bechdel Test

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!

S2 E6: Characters We Would Save

Have you ever wanted to rescue a fictional character from their creator? To somehow give them the storyline they deserve? Keli and Alice have. Often. Join them as they discuss their many, many feelings about Ron Weasley and other characters who weren’t given the chance to live up to their full potential. Expect spoilers, and an inordinate amount of love for Rupert Grint.

S2 E5: Problematic Rom-Coms

Who doesn't love a good rom-com? Person meets person. Sparks fly. Angst ensues. And before you can say — "Wait, do you really need to run to the airport? Can't you just call her?" — the music swells over a perfectly cinematic, happily ever after. Roll credits. But the path to "you had me at hello" is often paved with creepy intentions — actions so egregious that sometimes you're just a girl, sitting in front of a screen, asking, "what the HELL did I just watch?"

S2 E4: Ladies We Love to Love

Sometimes the character you're supposed to love to hate becomes a character you love to love. Join Keli and Alice as they defend the Lady Susans, Blair Waldorfs, and Amy Dunnes of the world. Listen up, and raise a glass to the mean girls, the crazy girls, the bitchy girls—the girls who make our lives a little bit more interesting.

S2 E3: Nanette

Hannah Gadsby's "Nanette" is a comedy special unlike any other. Part stand-up, part TED talk. All the emotions. Join Keli and Alice as they return to the pod fort to fan-girl over Hannah's heart, humor, and knowledge of art history. 

S2 Ep 2: Snape vs. Malfoy

Keli and Alice have a lot of thoughts about Severus Snape. So many, in fact, that they have tried to record this episode on three separate occasions. (Alice always gets angry, Keli always talks her down. Spoilers abound.) On the one hand: Snape’s a middle age man obsessed with torturing eleven year-olds because he got friend-zoned that one time. On the other hand: #Always, I guess? So, where does that leave us. Listen to hear Alice and Keli’s thoughts on all things Snape, and whether his redemption arc comes at the expense of Draco Malfoy.
