Comics In Motion / Femme on Film: Josie and the Pussycats

Listen on

Episode notes

Welcome to Femme on Film where host Ria Carrogan and a guest chat about films made for women, about women, by women… just awesome lady (and those who identify as awesome lady folk) content that has often been unfairly maligned, misunderstood by critics, and are often way ahead of their time and need a revisit.

This is a place to discuss all of this, and more!

This episode, Ria and Tony Farina discuss 2001’s Josie and the Pussycats, whether the critical mauling it received was deserved and just how ahead of its time it was. There’s swearing, feminist rants, Ria’s shockingly loud laugh and a short visit to the Rosario Dawson Appreciation Society.

A huge thank you to the Comics in Motion network who has given space to create this podcast. If you would like to come and chat about a film for Femme on Film, drop Ria a message via Twitter.
