We are finally joined by the legendary Catherine McCafferty to discuss three great shows with feminist perspectives. First off we discuss Catherine's own Web Series Bothered: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PFv71nwdpc0 It's a quick watch at 2 minutes an episode. If you liked Alone Together you'll love bothered.

We then discussed the unique Netflix Anime: Aggretsuko. Catherine shares similar experiences she's had with hostile work environments, and we all commiserate on how bosses can suck

Finally we discuss Alexa and Katie, Netflix's show for tweens, about tweens, with cancer. How does it hold up against other shows we've done, and does netflix score a hit?

And as always, 30 second pitches and crossovers!

Chuck and Barry, what a way to celebrate 44 episodes!

Well, one is a show, one is guest... I mean both have been shows, but only one is the show we're talking about.

This week Steve and Chris welcome back Chuck their old improv buddy to discuss the HBO Bill Hader series: Barry, which has some roots in the Los Angeles Improv scene.

And to properly celebrate a 44th episode spectacular, we take a look back at each show we've done and discuss whether Chuck has seen it, and whether he should.

Thank you for 44 episodes, here's to 44 more!
