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!

In this episode Hogey & Shan discuss the Loki series up through episode 5, and Lisha from Screen Tea Podcast joins the show again to discuss some of the disorders associated with the Daredevil villain Bullseye—particularly, Borderline Personality Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and Antisocial Personality Disorder as seen in the Netflix series’ portrayal of the character. Shan & Hogey discuss the character’s history and their favorite moments.

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! 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!

Doug and Alek are joined by Lisha and Jules McCurry (Screen Tea Podcast) to discuss mental health and parenting during a pandemic, the pros and cons of working in this environment (Lisha is a mental health professional and Jules recently returned to work after a long hiatus), and three movies they each watched once and will never watch again for whatever reason. If you have strong feelings about Fabergé eggs, bad Boston accents or the church that is cinema this episode is for you.
