Episode 25 – Black Christmas

This “week” our “weekly” podcast recording that took place in “February” tackles yet another holiday horror show: Black Christmas! Thrill as members of year 2018 who definitely didn’t record this months ago and then sit on it like Billy possibly sat on the baby (Agnes is pissed!) discuss the 1974 early progenitor of the slasher flick. We track some political implications, make some lesbian insinuations and generally burp it on up to the heavens. So stick you tongue in a socket if you want a real charge but for a more gentle delight tune in to this hot off the presses episode that is definitely not from December.

 

Lament configurations:

 

Zoe gets in on the holiday spirit with a recomendation for If You Believe and Gabby mentions that she saw international superstar Greg Sestero at a midnight screening of The Room without really recommending anything.

 

Zoe mentions Lullabye and it sounds pretty rad. New addition to the Run & Stumble bookclub after we read the BTK daughter autobiography?  

 

We beg the question, what exactly did happen to Margot Kidder? I seemed to remember it involved shrubbery and I wasn’t exactly wrong…

 

“Kidder has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, which was the cause of a widely publicized manic episode that she experienced in April 1996. At the time, Kidder had been working on an autobiography, when her laptop computer was infected with a virus, which caused it to crash and her to lose three years’ worth of drafts.[26] Kidder flew to Los Angeles to have the computer examined by a data retrieval company, who ultimately were unable to retrieve the files.[26] Kidder then entered a manic state and disappeared for four days. She was found in a backyard by a homeowner and was taken by the Los Angeles Police Department to Olive View Medical Center in a distressed state, the caps on her teeth having been knocked out during a purported rape attempt.[26] She was later placed in psychiatric care.[26] In 2007, Kidder said that she had not had a manic episode in 11 years, and has credited her well-being to orthomolecular medicine.[2]

Lastly we both make sweeping statements about the history of the anti-abortion movement that are based in very little facts or datum so have a couple p interesting articles I found:
