On this week’s episode of Cheer and Loathing, we explore satire, slashers, and social media with “The Final Girls” and “Tragedy Girls”.
THIS EPISODE: “THE FINAL GIRLS” AND “TRAGEDY GIRLS”
Some podcasts are destined to be the virginal final girl who saves the day, while others down a bottle of Adderall and perform an epic striptease to “Cherry Pie”. Guess which one we are.
Mötley Crüe said it best (when was the last time that sentence was uttered, if ever?)…what we need is girls, girls, girls. We need “Final Girls” and “Tragedy Girls”. We need girls in peril and girls doing very bad things. We need serial killers, quick-witted teens, killer 80s tunes, satire, and social commentary. We need the horrors of “Camp Bloodbath” and the even greater horrors of high school. Join us as we ask important questions, like, “What’s scarier, masked machete-wielding killers or fame-obsessed teen girls?”

May Queen Month continues on May 23rd as we discuss Ma (2019) and May (20o2).
