This week on FFR, special guest Jamie Loftus joins us to discuss the pop culture news of the week and the latest cinematic appetizer from Marvel, Ant-Man and The Wasp. Jamie is a hilarious comic, Zamboni-lover, and co-host of The Bechdel Cast. Topics under the feminist microscope this week include the ever-eroding distinction between public and private as demonstrated by the recent #planebae love-fest across social media; Scarlett Johansson staying on (problematic) brand; and the thrilling refusal of Serena Williams to ever diminish herself in the face of white male critique. Once the Ant-Man discussion gets going, your hosts tackle the film’s frustrating villains, the absurd logic of the quantum realm, and just how much Paul Rudd anyone really needs.
