Bonnie & Maude – Episode 9 Pt. 1 - Girls (Season 2) (9 plays)
Last June we started the Bonnie & Maude podcast with a discussion of Lena Dunham’s feature film Tiny Furniture and the opening three episodes of her then-brand-new show Girls.
In this episode we continue our conversation with an overview of Season 2 of Girls, sharing how our opinions have changed, evolved, or stayed the same.
Listen in as Kseniya shares her Lena Dunham nightmare, Eleanor reveals this season’s Rorschach plotting, and we both contemplate why this show is worth your time.
Outro Music: “Girls” by the Beastie Boys
Bonus: Check out Part 2 of this episode, as we continue the Girls debate with writer Chris J. Kelly.
Fuckyou: Pictures from the Heart by Kseniya Yarosh (2007).
I accidentally found my zine on Tumblr!
A promo collage Kseniya made today.
I can’t even express how happy I am with the way this turned out
If you have had a chance to listen to some Bonnie & Maude podcast episodes (my latest endeavor and one that is close to my heart because it’s felt like a bigger risk than any of my previous movie-related projects), please take a moment and write a short review for us on iTunes. Even just marking a Customer rating per episode or for the entire show raises our exposure and makes it more likely that someone who stumbles onto the show will give it a chance.
I’m not asking for long, glowing reviews.
Just a sentence or two about what you though and/or your favorite episode would mean a great deal to me and confirm that our hard work is being appreciated by the audience.
Women talking about film in podcast form is something that virtually does not exist and I want to help change this, starting with our show.

I’m doing this screening of Carrie (+ live podcast recording) on Saturday if you’re in NY and want to say hello.
I like the variety of styles this illustrator takes on. I wish I had such range.
I really like the mix of oddness and elegance of this dress.

Remember when I did this for 2011? Well, 2012 has been even a bigger year.
The color-coding is pretty similar with a few minor additions:
PINK — live presentations and screenings Matt and I did together
PEACH — podcast recordings (Eleanor and I have now recorded 5 episodes of Bonnie & Maude; Matt & I were also guests on an episode of Read It and Weep recently)
GRAY — select press mentions/interviews for I Love Bad Movies, Brooklyn Zine Fest and Bonnie & Maude
BROWN — zine events (Brooklyn Zine Fest, which we organized, was in April so much of January-March were spent preparing for that)
DARK BLUE — Matt’s solo presentations
LIGHT BLUE — my solo presentation
UNDERLINES — trips to LA, MD, New England, boat house in Sheepshead Bay, around Virginia, and Puerto Rico
And that’s all not counting wedding preparations, work obligations, attending friends’ screenings/events/parties, and.. you know, life.
