2.01: There Can’t Be Denim Shirts Forever

February 20, 2019
ūüö®Content Warning: In this episode, due to the nature of the case of the week, we discuss topics related to statutory rape, child abuse, and sexual violence.
 
Ally has clearly stopped crying in her office over last year, because she's back for a new season and so are we! And we're kicking off in style, joined by our first guest of season 2 - Matt from Spocklight podcast! And boy do we need his help, because Ally starts things off with a bang - thirsting over a younger man, who happens to be the victim of her client's statutory rape case. Cue Dawson's Creek style flashbacks and some stern analysis from us! This episode we're discussing s2e1: The Real World.

1.21: What Kind Of F*kery Is This?!

November 28, 2018

ūüö®Content Warning: In this episode we discuss topics related to sexual assault, and racial abuse.

For this landmark episode, where Renee is centre stage being prosecuted for assaulting her date/sexual predator, we needed to call in reinforcements for the 90s shit show that ensues! Alice Farrant joins us to pick apart every ridiculous claim, argument and problematic attitude - and trust us we leave NO STONE UNTURNED! Also, Billy and Georgia have a pregnancy scare but WHO CARES ABOUT THAT. Keep your woke eyes and ears open as this episode we're discussing Ally McBeal s1e21: Being There.
