Cinemaball – Feminist Frequency

What’s the shortest distance between two movies? Carolyn Petit and Ebony Aster are determined to find out! In Feminist Frequency’s new weekly, limited run* podcast, your intrepid hosts will compete to form a chain of ostensibly-unrelated films, in an attempt to discover just how many movies they have to watch to connect one terrible movie to another. What exactly links one movie to another? Criteria can be a shared actor, director, plot, or even a similar title — but each host has to agree on the connection before the game of CinemaBall can continue!
