Episode 108 – Contagion Horror

Maya and Rebecca continue their deep dive into movies about contagious disease, breaking down infection horror movies and what they tell us about disease in the cultural imagination. This episode doesn’t address the news around BLM protests and police violence, but remember: It’s okay to give yourself a breather from the stress of current events. …

Episode 107: Tara Reade

Rebecca and Maya get into Tara Reade’s sexual assault allegations against Joe Biden and what they mean. Could it be true? Is he being Swift-Boated? DOES IT EVEN MATTER? We weren’t drinking for this one, but God, we should have been.

Episode 106: Outbreak! Contagion! Quarantine!

Maya and Rebecca analyze Outbreak (1995), Contagion (2011) and Quarantine (2008) – three one-word-titled movies that reveal some major themes and set the stage for a deeper dive into the topic of infectious disease in the popular imagination.


The Sauce is a podcast featuring two know-it-all feminists.

Rebecca Cohen creates the webcomic The Adventures of Gyno-Star: Fighting the Forces of Evil and Male Chauvinismwhich is… exactly what it sounds like. She also writes a lot, but mostly less than 280 characters at a time.

IMG_4732.jpgMaya Gurantz makes art, writes, and brainwashes – er, teaches – young impressionable minds. She likes long road trips in the American West, 70s cinema, and getting angry about the patriarchy.  Don’t get her started (please, get her started). More at mayagurantz.com.
