Anyway we're pretentious

Episode 003 | Wrapping Laurels Around My Extended Knees

This week’s guest: fellow pretentious asshole, Dakota!

The last one alive in a slasher film is always the tough, smart girl. The Final Girl. Claire and Dakota try to figure out why that is, especially in light of the highly male and testosterone-infused audience. It’s 3 am and they’re doing their best and Claire definitely said bizarre too many times.

Misc. Mentions:
