Welcome to Screen Tea Podcast; Surprise, we’re still alive! And we’re swinging into 2022 with the biggest hit of last year: Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Welcome to Screen Tea Podcast! Come back to the mystical 90s with Lisha & Jules as they cover Lin-Manuel Miranda’s directorial debut, the musical-movie adaptation of Jonathan Larson’s tick, tick…BOOM!
Editor’s Note: This episode was recorded on Halloween.
Welcome to Screen Tea Podcast! Lisha and Jules review a different kind of film: Austin Allan James’s 2021 independent, micro-budget film Who’s With Me? (You can watch for free; links after the cut!) Make sure you have a back stock of clean water (for your tea of course!) before digging in as Lisha gets deep into theory, Jules puts her education to work, and they get into a ridiculous debate about who would escape a deadly quarantine and who would be left to die in misery 😃 Your hosts were lucky enough to get some behind the scenes info about the production of this film from the creator himself, so sit back, relax, and spend some time with us on Spooky Day. 🧡
Welcome to Screen Tea Podcast, and the first ever Small Screen Tea! That’s right, Lisha and Jules stepped away from the big screen for a moment because there was a spooky Netflix series that was just too good not to talk about: Mike Flanagan’s Midnight Mass! Do it up with a themed drink this week like your hosts and turn the lights down low as you listen to the dulcet tones of Lisha screeching about the hot, dorky, tragic priest; Jules demanding answers to the hard questions about poison; and both of your hosts admiring everything Mike Flanagan does, period (as well as a ton of crooning over Rahul Kohli and Samantha Sloyan). It’s a pretty blasphemous episode, but hey, so’s the subject matter, so keep the holy water nearby as you jump into this week’s episode!
Welcome to Screen Tea Podcast! This week, Lisha and Jules cover a spooky monster movie that they both remembered being much better than it actually is: 2007’s The Mist! Keep the lights off (BECAUSE LIGHTS IN FOG DON’T WORK THE WAY THIS MOVIE SEEMS TO THINK THEY DO) and get ready to giggle at things that aren’t supposed to be funny as you listen to Lisha demolish an ending that she once loved while Jules tries really, really hard to find the positives re: terrible special effects.
Welcome to Screen Tea Podcast, and our first ever minisode! (Ignore Jules and her grumbling about how the minisode is still 43 minutes long). Since this is a mini, here’s a mini description this week: Lisha really hated A Quiet Place Part II, and Jules really wanted her to rant about it because she thought it would be funny. There you have it; brew yourself some holiday-appropriate pumpkin spice black tea (you basic bitches), get cozy, and be vewwy, vewwy quiet as you enjoy this lil baby episode! (At least we don’t keep our baby in a basket all the time).
This week, Lisha & Jules are back on their Marvel nonsense with Cate Shortland’s Black Widow! Should you so choose (of your own free will, of course), listen up as Lisha zooms back and forth between loving everything about the film and being angry about the fact that it exists (as well as discussing the, erm, “fatherly” qualities of David Harbour), Jules gets hyped over a happy O.T. Fagbenle and gets stoked about choreography, and both of your hosts lose their collective minds over the perfect Florence Pugh (insert heart-eyes here) ♥ This was a fun one; spike that tea with some vodka and enjoy!
Welcome to Screen Tea Podcast! For the second week running, Lisha and Jules managed to coax some guests along for the ride! Alek and Doug from the podcast Keep Your Voice Down join your hosts for a deep dive into the (much requested) 2015 Ridley Scott adaptation of Andy Weir’s The Martian!
Welcome to Screen Tea Podcast! It’s a special episode, folks, as we welcome our very first guest: scary internet friend Kat from Delaware! Kat (who is honestly wonderful as you’ll learn) joins your hosts as they cover their first musical adaptation, Jon M. Chu’s 2021 adaptation of Lin Manuel Miranda’s In the Heights!
Welcome to Screen Tea Podcast… and our second Listener’s Choice episode! If you need to grab a drink before buckling down to listen to Lisha & Jules dig into Thomas Vinterberg’s Another Round… maybe make it tea? Coffee? High quality H2O?
WSV’s Lisha McCurry writes, “As a therapist, I wept for every client in the LGBTQIA+ community I’ve worked with who sat across from me in pain, in shame, experiencing self-doubt or internalized homophobia. Clients who I managed to bond with over superheroes and general nerd-dom, underdog stories and the fantasy worlds they escaped into when our real world was too much. I imagined them in that moment, seeing themselves on that screen, thinking ‘Loki’s like me? That’s so amazing.’”
No need to travel to the past or future, park yourself right here in the present to hear Lisha & Jules review Stefon Bristol’s 2019 time travel film, See You Yesterday! Badass goggles not required (but highly recommended, because…badass) to listen as Lisha questions why there’s so much swearing in a children’s movie (this is not a children’s movie), as Jules nerds out over sci-fi specs, and both of your podcasters give major props to the writers for utilizing this fascinating platform to highlight the injustices that exist in America’s past and present. Pull on those time travel backpack straps, kids, and let’s gooooooo!
Welcome to Screen Tea Podcast! Bust out your best pastel nail polish and 90s girl pop, it’s time to join Lisha and Jules for Emerald Fennell’s feature film directorial debut, 2020’s Promising Young Woman!
Welcome to Screen Tea Podcast! Put away that Quietus box in favor of listening to Lisha and Jules go on and on about Alfonso Cuaron’s 2006 sci-fi thriller Children of Men! Find a nice spot in the UK countryside (preferably far away from Charlie Hunnam’s wig) and tune in as Lisha fantasizes about swapping secondary and main characters, Jules gets to properly geek out over one of her favorite sci-fi flicks, and both of your hosts lean hard into Michael Caine’s Lennon impression. This is not a happy film, but it is a ridiculous episode, so enjoy anyway!
