Jen Brown and Dawn Humphrey of Women in Caskets, a podcast that explores the intersection of feminism and horror, join us to talk about It (liked it), mother! (WTF) and what you should see at this year’s Fantastic Fest, the Alamo Drafthouse’s annual celebration of horror and sci-fi.

We also discuss the backlash the Alamo Drafthouse received after it was discovered Devin Faraci, a critic accused of sexual harassment, was still being employed by the Drafthouse; the “boys’ club” that often surrounds film institutions; and what the Fantastic Fest community can do to address these issues.

Come on down and float with us.
