About Us

Every other week, Valerie and Helen will look at a different chick flick (muff film, broad comedy, lady thriller, period movie, whathaveyou) and boil it down to its themes and how those themes affect our tender feminine emotions.Mostly we'll just go off on tangents about Sex and the City.We'll talk about chick flick tropes, like love triangles/squares/pentagons and sisterhood. We'll explore just how strong girl power actually is and if real vampires sparkle in the sunlight, or if that's just movie magic. And we'll reveal our (Helen's) repressed sexual feelings for Hugh Grant.We'll get a dude's opinion, and we'll even listen to it.

Latest Episodes

Bonus: Deep Blue Sea

EAnd now the episode you have not been waiting for and may have already heard! Please enjoy this summer hottie, previously released on the Flying Machine Network Patreon channel in October 2018. Helen and Valerie talk about nothing and everything but mostly they talk about the 1999 American Science Fiction Horror film Deep Blue Sea. If you previously paid for this content and now you're like, "Hey this is my top secret content, why are you giving it away?", then please come over to our Facebook group and ask to speak to a manager. Helen and Valerie will find a way to make you feel more important than everyone else - because let's be honest, you are and everyone should know that.

Josie and the Pussycats

EHappy Pride! As every good brand can tell you right now, we are living in difficult times. So difficult, in fact, that we talked for two hours -- just like in the old difficult times! This month's movie is admittedly pretty white, pretty straight, plenty corporate, hella cisgendered, and doesn't wear a mask (mostly), but this month's movie doeshappen to beJosie and the Pussycats -- the best movie ever; join the army. This episode is a lot, and it is lovingly dedicated to the memory of Adam Schlesinger (October 31, 1967 – April 1, 2020). Outtro music: Way Back into Love, written and performed by Adam Schlesinger Co-host Helen appears on episodes of Deep in Bear Country [Episode 247 - Play Ball!] & We'll Get it Right Next Year: An Adventure in Cinema [Mailbag Apocalypse w/ Helen] Check out Limited Cel, a generational Hanna-Barbera cartoon review show, with Mike and Nick Wood.

Magic Mike

Well, we kinda lucked into a quarantine McConauMay special event. We recorded one great episode onMagic Mike with our friend Jon Biegen of Stranger Still back in March. Then, when that episode was lost faster than Big-Dick Richie's tearaway pants, we recorded another, even greater episode on Magic Mikewith our friend Jon Biegen of Stranger Still in April! And here we are in McConauMay 2020 with a new episode on a new (-to-the-podcast) McConaughey movie and a beloved past McConauMay guest. Everything worked out in the end, and Jon Biegen and Channing Tatum are national treasures. For different, but sometimes similar, reasons. Anyway, enjoy, and happy belated Mother's Day. The movie we're discussing has butts in it.

Pitch Perfect

ENothing makes a woman feel more like a girl than a man who sings like a boy, and nothing makes a chick flick fan feel more like a real podcaster than a very special guest. We were delighted to have The Flop House Podcast's own Dan McCoy join us -- from a very safe distance -- to talk about the 2012 aca-hitPitch Perfect. We find harmony with Anna Kendrick et al, but we also find plenty to criticize -- so listeners like you don't call the movie names behind its back. You can hear more from Dan at flophousepodcast.com, follow him at @dankmccoy on Twitter, or catch some of his Emmy-award-winning writing on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah.

Bonus: The Three Diminutive Pigs

It's April the first! And here we are with a new episode, just for you! Just kidding! It's an old episode that was originally just for paying Patrons, but since the world and network fell apart, we're sharing it with you now! In this bonus episode, Helen and Valerie analyze a gender-swapped adaptation of the classic story of the Three Little Pigs. Special guests Maintenance Guy and Walter (the dog) also feature. Is this swine story a chick flick? You have to listen to find out! I would just tell you, but I haven't listened through the ep in a while and I don't remember. Stay tuned for a return to full episodes later in the month. And happy April, FiLM Fools!

EBig vibes today! We're back in 2020 with our first episode of the year. The release of this episode coincides with two very special occasions, Galentine's Day and our 4 year podcasting anniversary. So Happy Galentine's Day, pals! And pssht, you don't have to be a gal to celebrate. All that is required to participate is appreciating and honoring the friendship between women. If you consume this episode, you're doing just that. Additionally, this episode is our last under Flying Machine, our beloved podcast family (formally Comrade Radio). The Flying Machine Network has been our home for 3 years and during that time our lives have changed and our hearts have grown. Many of you may have found us through the network and I know you feel our feelings and share our sentiments when we say, thank you for everything Flying Machine. Special thank you to Malcolm Nygard and Justin Vignola. Leading with talent and talently leading. (I think that's a made up word - just go with it). All the love!
