This week, Guy Branum, Karen Tongson and Wynter Mitchell are joined by Riley Silverman. She’s the head writer of the Max Fun podcast, International Waters. They discuss A Quiet Place, John Krasinski’s horror film about a family trying to survive a post-apocalyptic world where monsters kill anything that makes sound.

Karen is all about the video for Janelle Monáe’s new music video for the track PYNK, which she says may have established her as a force in queer performance and art. Guy and Wynter are all about Beyonce’s Coachella performance, which may have single-handedly made the music festival relevant again. Riley is all about the movie Blockers, a comedy that she says feels refreshingly scripted.

The panel will their discuss what they think of A Quiet Place, including whether it has a positive portrayal of a character with a disability and explain their theories about what the film’s subtext could be.

With Karen Tongson, Guy Branum, Margaret Wappler, Wynter Mitchell and Riley Silverman.

That’s My Jam:

Riley Silverman - Jeremy Jordan - She Used to be Mine

Karen Tongson - Windy - The Association

Wynter Mitchell - Prince - Purple Music

Guy Branum Mel Tormé - Stardust

Riley Silverman (Head Writer for International Waters on MaxFun) joins Allie and Julia to talk about Lisa vs. Malibu Stacy . In the episode, the talking Malibu Stacy doll ignites pandemonium at the mall, and Lisa is eager to find out what her new doll will say. Unfortunately, she is incredibly disappointed by the sexist catchphrases. She spends the rest of the episode trying to get a new kind of doll made -- one that will inspire little girls everywhere to believe in their dreams. Riley tells us about her favorite gags in this episode, discusses how some of the jokes have aged overtime, and why she loves Malibu Stacy's new hat!

Don't forget Everything's Coming Up Simpsons has an upcoming live show in Chicago on Saturday, March 31 at Thalia Hall!
