    Happy New Year from the Radaptations sisters! We’re ready to bid farewell to 2020 by looking back on all the titles we took on in 2020, our Year of the Ladies. You’ll be treated to some very special book and movie recommendations before we reflect on the special moments from our 2020 episodes (mostly Owen Wilson hootin’ and hollerin’ in The Haunting). Of course, we also award the annual Raddies to the best and worst titles from our canon. If you’re reading and watching along with us, make sure to tune in for our episode on Who Framed Roger Rabbit (yes, this is an adaptation) dropping in February 2021.

    31/10/2020 Duración: 01h02min

    Where do we even begin with 1999’s The Haunting, in which Owen Wilson’s head gets bonked off and goes flying through the air while Lili Taylor softly says "oh no.” In this episode, we’ll talk about the ethics of human subjects research, the value of vanquishing a ghost grandpa to hell, and an anagram of Michiel Huisman that is so stupid we can’t help but continuously return to it throughout the episode. We are on break until January 2021, but keep in touch on Twitter @Radaptations, and check out other women-hosted movie podcasts in the Lady Pod Squad Network by following #LadyPodSquad.

    We read Shirley Jackson's universally loved 1959 gothic novel The Haunting of Hill House and watched its 2018 Netflix adaptation masterfully helmed by Mike Flanagan. We get into the business of terror versus horror, repressed queerness, and of course FOOD, before discussing all 10 episodes of the show. Tune in to hear about our favorite scary moments and which Crain siblings the Radaptations sisters identify with the most! Be on the lookout for our next episode in which we'll discuss the 1999 adaptation titled The Haunting (Owen Wilson gets decapitated in a scene that's not meant to be funny but really, really is).

Yes, we're discussing 1998's I Still Know What You Did Last Summer, and while we promise not to spend too much time dissecting that nonsensical title, we make no guarantees about how much time we spend talking about Freddie Prinze Jr. in a henley (one of the only redeeming qualities of this film).

    Happy Halloween! We're treating you to a scary episode in which we talk all about I Know What You Did Last Summer, both the 1973 novel by Lois Duncan and the 1997 film starring Jennifer Love Hewitt! Catch a glimpse of youth culture in the 70s from Duncan's book as we grapple with the Vietnam War, gender relations, and high school home economics requirements. You'll also be treated to a history lesson about the horror genre in the U.S., learning how I Know What You Did Last Summer sits squarely in the era of the slasher-revival. Of course, in true Radaptations sisters fashion, we get overly analytical and hypothesize what life would have been like for our favorite baddie fisherman had he successfully offed Jennifer Love Hewitt and Freddie Prinze Jr. Stay tuned for our minisode out in November on the sequel, aptly titled I Still Know What You Did Last Summer, and be sure to check out other women-hosted movie podcasts in the Lady Pod Squad Network by following #LadyPodSquad.

But before we get there, Ginny takes a quiz on other fictional bears and their homes before we hear two new entries in the shared Radaptations Universe!
