Episode 214

Pregnancy and Babies in TV and Movies

In this episode, we lovingly dedicate it to our pregnant compatriot, Erin The Edge Moon, who is infinity months pregnant with child. We unpack the idea of pregnancy in culture, discuss pregnancies that were hidden, pregnancies that were co-opted for the sake of art and babies that ruined freaking everything.
