Jay Washington joins the team for the week to make the Tights and Fights triple threat a fatal fourway!

WWE’s rolling out a new Facebook exclusive show: The Mixed Match Challenge. It’ll run Tuesday nights with matches between mixed male and female tag teams. How likely are we to watch? We’ll tell you about it.

And how great does Samoa Joe look? He’s probably the first guy who’s become a threat to the Shield entirely on his own. But what’s his path going forward? Could it possibly include beating Roman Reigns for the Intercontinental Title?

And did Kevin Owens REALLY beat up Jay once?

All that plus what we think of Cedric Alexander, Chris Jericho attacking Kenny Omega, why Mike love Sonya Deville and why Kane vs. Braun Strowman is already losing some of its shine.

Main Event

It’s our annual worst of wrestling list! What was the most disappointing part of 2017? Bray Wyatt’s title reign and booking? Roman Reigns and Undertaker’s match at WrestleMania? The Women’s Money in the Bank storyline? We’ll revisit the painful memory for you.

Biz and Theresa discuss our kids’ budding independence…or lack thereof and wonder how much we, as parents, are to blame for it. What do you mean ignoring our children's desire to do it themselves because we have no patience could be part of it? Weird. Plus, Biz is visited by the ghost of resolutions past and thank you notes, and Theresa “wuvs" baby talk.

Still Buffering

We did a live show! At PodCon! In Seattle! We talked more about Claire's because it's been a while since we've reminded you all of the many joys and horrors of that store, and we had a sisterly secret Santa that may have been messed up by our littlest sister. Oh and we threw out scrunchies, lip smackers, and earrings, so if you were there we hope you enjoy and if you weren't...well...we're sorry.

Switchblade Sisters Episode 6: Body Double with Sophia Takal

April Wolfe
Guests: 
Sophia Takal

Things get steamy as April talks to actress and director Sophia Takal about the somewhat problematic Brian De Palma erotic thriller, Body Double. The two discuss how the film influenced Sophia's own work and her debut film, Always Shine. Sophia recalls her time as an actress, and the objectification that came with the audition process. They also analyze the violence against women's bodies in the film and the sexuality of Melanie Griffith's character, Holly Body. Despite its issues, April and Sophia also marvel at the craftsmanship of Brian De Palma, and how this film can be used as a template for how NOT to treat female characters.

Sophia Takal's Always Shine is available on Amazon now.

And if you haven't seen it yet, go watch Body Double.
