Fake news, oppressive patriarchy, and an overall impending sense of doom: Join us as "Aunt" Kelly Anneken & Molly "Ofmitchell" Sanchez discuss this and more in Red All Over, a podcast that explores The Handmaid's Tale on Hulu, Alias Grace on Netflix, the works of Margaret Atwood and (weirdly) not current events.
Blessed be the finale, Redheads! Kelly + Molly's hearts grew three sizes as they watched The Handmaid's Tale S3E13. It's a strong finish to an uneven season, so they take the opportunity to get real pedantic about "mayday," worry about Gilead secret slime action, come up with a Steven Universe name for June + Janine, spot some Lush shampoo outside Soul Scrolls, explain how to make Lunchables from scratch, remind everyone that there are other causes for female barfing aside from pregnancy, make a connection to Toni Morrison's Beloved, brush up on dystopian party etiquette, gun for a Ferris Bueller crossover, hope that S4 will bring more a racially responsible approach to writing and casting for the show, and, of course, have one last argument about a very minor plot detail. You can still get a Venmo shoutout for one of our episodes covering The Testaments this fall, we'll keep the convo poppin' on Facebook and your five-star reviews on Apple Podcasts are always appreciated!
It's stress on stress on stress in The Handmaid's Tale S3E12, but Kelly + Molly are thrilled because their podcast inspired a woman to dump her wack ass boyfriend. They're begging for a Thug Life mashup for this episode, clocking textbook examples of dramatic irony, encouraging everyone in Gilead to just take a hit of that medicinal marijuana, reading croissants, wondering if Charm City Cakes survived Gilead, mocking the second-string Commanders, revealing the location of Chekov's literal gun, debating the morality of Stabby June's actions, trying to get an invite to a secret Martha kegger, hoping that Elizabeth Reaser will be back for S4, thinking about why war criminals get to stay at the Ace Hotel Toronto, buying Shonda Rhimes a new beach house and trying to figure out if there's pizza in Gilead. Please fund our Number the Stars adaptation/collaboration with Sean Astin on Venmo, tell us what you think will happen in the finale on Facebook and drop us a five-star review on Apple Podcasts if you've got some time to spare!
Birth control is not yet a collectors item in this recap of The Handmaid's Tale S3E11 and Kelly + Molly are explaining some jokes that happen with their faces. Sweet baby and friend of the pod Yahlin Chang wins MVP for writing this season in a genuinely stressful episode with clearly defined stakes. They're not buying Whitford's excuses for the things Gilead forgot about, worrying what will happen to all the muffins, inventing Dick Cheney groupies, getting freaked out by June's Joker face, arguing about tampons in Gilead, trying to figure out where the heck Nick is, cheering for the Martha Mafia and deciphering who the titular liars might be. As always, if you throw us a few bones on Venmo, we'll give you a shoutout on an upcoming episode. Join in the conversation on Facebook and Apple Podcasts, but be prepared for some potty humor!
Say yes to the scone with our recap of S3E10 of The Handmaid's Tale! Kelly + Molly are occasionally jackasses, but today they're bringing musical research that will blow your socks off (Mozart fans: ready your pitchforks). After a brief discussion of the show's ongoing failure to engage with race, they lose their minds over dessert-based semaphore, dumbass eyeball closeups, Whitford as the Oppenheimer of Gilead, the challenge of watching mental health crises on tv, Fred's chivalry dick/plaid suit combo, Outlander sex scene watching strategies, world building we can believe in, how math works, Atwood novel throwbacks, missing the Canada crew, and Crotchwatch 2019. Concerned we're not making enough scratch from our partnership with Big Latuda? Kick in a few bucks over at Venmo. We love connecting with all of our Redheads, so check out the convo over on Facebook if you haven't yet. And last but not least, drop us a 5 star review on Apple Podcasts to fight the haters #chillnotshrill
Yikes P. Bikes, this episode scores five "yi-yi-yi-yi-yis" as Kelly + Molly connect the dots to baby first hospitals, solitary confinement and heartbeat bills. We're not a commander-friendly podcast as we watch Handmaid's Tale S3E9's drama unfold in a radical, experimental free-range hospital in Gilead. There are shades of Black Mirror's "San Junipero" as Natalie (Ashleigh LaThrop) makes her day rate for doing very little while June becomes an unreliable narrator for an episode. The gals Google through their thoughts to figure out what the 80s were like, marvel at the outsize presence Cherry Jones has in the show and read the new children's book An Eyepatch for Janine. If you're diggin' what we do here, consider dropping a donation on our Venmo page and come hang out over on Facebook. Please rate, review and recommend us to whoever you can, however you can!
Kelly + Molly are rooting for torture in this recap of The Handmaid's Tale S3E8, which contains the long awaited Aunt Lydia flashback! Don't be mad, Gilead made them this way. They're begging June to leave Carol/Natalie alone, feeling bored by everything in Boston, stanning hard for Ann Dowd's gorgeous looks, trying to figure out contemporary goths, wondering if The Testaments will be a way for Margaret Atwood to address user feedback, shouting out Ordena Stephens for a great (if too short) performance, wondering what the actual deal is with medical care, talking about Kim Kardashian West's grandma, explaining how to tell Kelly + Molly apart, killing the Doofy Guardian, predicting ridiculous series finale music clues and mourning the loss of Lindsay Lohan's nightclub in Mykkonos. Be sure to join in the discussion on Facebook, rate/review/recommend us anywhere you can and if you really love us, throw us a little cash on Venmo.
Get down with medicine in this recap of The Handmaid's Tale S3E7. Kelly + Molly are honestly shocked that it took this long to get an episode called "Under His Eye" and they're rolling out the red rope as they get into it about being Team Carol, the show's conservative fans, their wild excitement about Gilead restaurants, all the beverages by Sobe at Loaves + Fishes, the return of Grinch June, the audacity of drinking iced coffee in the dead of winter, Beth's zingers, a cameo from the Home Alone house, upsetting Sound of Music fantasies, anorexic Baptists, Alma's dashed improv dreams and the Horny Wife in DC. Our fans are the best-o (whether or not you make-a the pesto), and we appreciate you! Be sure to join in the discussion on Facebook, rate/review/recommend us anywhere you can and if you really love us, throw us a little cash on Venmo.
Molly chats with Handmaid's Tale writer (and fellow Redhead!) Marissa Jo Cerar about female musical artists, how being adopted impacts her work and what was up with that convenience store scene in S3E5 "Unknown Caller."
Kelly had a chance to chat with Handmaid's Tale OG writer Dorothy "DForts" Fortenberry to talk through the latest episode of the Hulu series ("Household"), her take on Meloni/Reaser Watch and her favorite chick flick/form of self-care.
The Swiss are giving a ball and everyone's invited (except Nick). Kelly + Molly recap The Handmaid's Tale S3E6 and are thrilled to report that Meloni Watch has ended! They take a spin on the Handmaid's Express, celebrate a great bootist, fail to recognize almost any Washington DC landmarks, break down the Quiverfull movement, speculate about Gilead's hair removal cottage industry, clock June for making out with a purpose, wonder what snooker is and jam to some moody piano. This episode boasts amazing face acting from Elisabeth Moss and Ann Dowd, and everyone should always remember to hire Amanda Brugel.
Kelly + Molly briefly host a fruit fan podcast and a The Best Years of Our Lives podcast before they pick apart the least believable part of The Handmaid's Tale S3E5. They demand a backstory arc for Amanda Brugel, explain how there's only two types of men (plus OT Fagbenle), fire up the slut signal, gush over Yvonne Strahovski wearing pants, interrupt bits with other bits, remind everyone not to smoke even though it's a symbol of bodily autonomy, get trolled by Bruce Miller's iPod shuffle again, swoon over Treason + Coconuts, and get ready for their Harry Potter Sears portrait close-up. As always, keep in touch on Facebook, rate + review us with Apple Podcasts and give us a raise at Venmo.
Live from the past, it's Kelly + Molly (with a recap of The Handmaid's Tale S3E4)! In what passes for a "breather" episode of this show, Gilead gets strict again, we finally see some boys (who be likin' dinosaurs), the once and future Rory reunites with Clea Duvall and her woke baby, Fred wants Serena Joy to ask him to the Sadie Hawkins dance, Katy Perry's parents are thriving, Nick still lives above the Waterford's garage, Aunt Lydia's not ready to be back at work, and no one learns that you shouldn't ever invite the Handmaids to the party. Surprising topics include Vine compilations, the musical Carousel and lesbian comfort food.You know the drill--hit us up on Facebook, leave us some love on Apple Podcasts and donate some monies at Venmo. We'd also love it if you'd let all your pals know about us. Thaaaaaaaanks!
Cue up your "Whit's Greatest Hits" mixtape and get ready for the Transformers/Handmaid's Tale crossover you didn't know you wanted. Kelly doesn't know her own age and Molly's too jaded to be shocked, but like stalwart Marthas, they're really good at multitasking in this recap of S2E3. They've got some notes on the soundtrack (more Dido, Britney Spears and Amanda Palmer) and some guest star suggestions (Adam Scott, Margo Martindale and Tituss Burgess). This episode has it all--echoes of Alias Grace, Atwood-inspired dialogue, populism, gloveless fingers, binders full of women and the return of dumb, ordinary June. As always, we're here for you between episodes on Facebook. If you want to keep us going strong, drop us a dollar or two on Venmo and leave a nice review on Apple Podcasts.
We're at def con YIKES in this recap of The Handmaid's Tale S3E2 and even Molly's Martha face blindness can't put a damper on the joy of finally getting FACE BUTTER (kinda) and other treats straight from Margaret Atwood's novel. She and Kelly raise a glass of Serena Joy's Skinny Chardonnay as they call Jesus a couch surfer, muse on the mysteries of Mrs. Bertha Rochester Lawrence, celebrate the return of Sad!Luke (and boyfriend of the podcast OT Fagbenle), complain that there aren't any fat handmaids, hope for a fun hot tub night with Chris Meloni and Elizabeth Reaser, confront their old nemesis "inconsistent world-building," and remind everyone to always pay their bus fare.Can't get enough Red All Over?

They give a well-deserved shoutout to their hookups at Hulu, LOL at June's profane bible verses, debate the way to make a perfect season opener, enjoy a very short Whitford Watch 2019, imagine a postapocalyptic 911, remember that Hagnes is a thing, giggle at June's impromptu mom's group with Mrs. McKenzie, namecheck both Rihanna/Eminem collaborations, and encourage everyone to follow Ane Crabtree's Instagram.Don't forget to help us out by rating + reviewing us on Apple Podcasts, recommending us to fellow fans, joining the convo on Facebook and helping us have more close encounters with Anthony Rapp by pitching in on Venmo.
Kelly & Molly are back with a special Galentine's/Palentine's Day treat! They breakdown the 2001 girl power classic Legally Blonde and dish about SF's Darwin Cafe, internet friends and brunches, whether they actually like The Handmaid's Tale on Hulu, getting drunk on broth, nail techs in different area codes, Warner's two dads, the Final Destination Larters, blonde jokes, TERFs and which movies they'd choose for their Ariana Grande-inspired music videos.

Kelly & Molly discuss their current birth control methods in an effort to avoid the actual content of the episode, their final explainer episode about the real-life inspiration behind The Handmaid's Tale book, film and Hulu adaptation. They cover Bigfoot documentaries, numbers as a tool of the patriarchy, real-ass citations, looking out for sex workers, more tepid book recommendations, Gone with the Wind apologia, consequences for war criminals in Gilead and how to mispronounce a lot of Russian words.

Kelly & Molly prepare for what's sure to be an uplifting Season 3 of The Handmaid's Tale on Hulu with their fourth installment of Gal's Guide to Gilead. This time, they dig into the real-life inspirations for the novel and tv show while making an unfortunate number of Smash Mouth references, dissing the the tourism of the macabre, bemoaning the undisputed assumption that women are property, referencing kangaroo courts, learning about contemporary labor camps, and put Judeo-Christian bias on blast .

Kelly & Molly, cite their sources--thoroughly--from the comfort of a spacious new couch! In their first explainer episode, they put the Handmaid in The Handmaid's Tale with info from the original novel, the Hulu adaptation, and the sardonic Margaret Atwood's own words. They also spend an absurd amount of time talking about Lindsay Lohan's farewell selfie to John McCain. Snag a shoutout by throwing us a few bucks on Venmo, recommend our Facebook page to your friends going through Gilead withdrawal, and rate and review us on Apple Podcasts!

They tell what the deal is about maternity giraffes, gym symbolism, hope chests, breast milk negotiations, putting a bell on Fred Waterford, Cancer season v. Scorpio season, their ideal Shannon shoutout from the Hulu show, beersplaining, Alexis Bledel's busted face, Colonies exit interviews, and how the second part of ride or die is "death."

Kelly & Molly bite into the juicy tomato that is The Handmaid's Tale S2E11 (which is also an unexpected Holly Hunter documentary).

Kelly & Molly renew the torture porn debate in their recap of The Handmaid’s Tale S2E10, which ranks pretty low on the fruit cup scale. They also get into it about poison pussies, whether Jesus likes Sex and the City, nylons, womansplaining sports, the Commander’s false chivalry, Handmaid gerrymandering, anger potting, and Eden’s cootie catcher. You Redheads remain worth your weight in charcuterie, and we cannot thank you enough for reviewing us on Apple Podcasts, hanging out on Facebook, and being ridiculously generous to us on Venmo.One last thing!

It's difficult like 3 PM on a Monday afternoon as Kelly & Molly recap one of the season's weaker episodes. They cast Nick as a member of the Jets from West Side Story, declare St. Paul to be trash, critique Serena and June's coworking space, diss gluten-free Commanders, disagree about the symbolism of the red pen, debate the plural of "clitoris," marvel at the West Elm hospitals of the future, speculate about Rita's profesion, pitch a CE Seed series for Eden, and decide that a little Janine goes a long way. You Redheads continue to be the best fans in the game, so we know you'll never stop recommending Red All Over to your buds, subscribing/rating/reviewing us on Apple Podcasts, and contacting us on Facebook.
Kelly and Molly are as disappointed by S2E7 of The Handmaid's Tale as they were by Meghan Markle's wedding dress. There are plenty of bright spots in the episode as they sound off on pansexual Lando Calrissian, Molly's Stromboli Bruce Miller impression, bringing back sexy Joseph Fiennes, the dystopian level of cozy in Gilead, infinite chances for naughty Handmaids, celebrity murderers, and Samira Wiley's Moira unlocking her MySpace account.

Kelly as the Commander of modern times, and how this Hulu show has bigger stone's than HBO's Game of Thrones.

Kelly & Molly's loins are in a tizzy during this week's recap of Hulu's adaptation of Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale. After a few back in time comments about previous episodes, they wonder why Hulu couldn't partner with a real magazine for this episode, welcome Shannon back again, write a few poems, discuss several instances where men are very useful indeed, defy the haters, discover music even more pretentious than jazz, and play a classic game of "which rapist would I prefer?"

Recovering actors/comedians Kelly & Molly are finally caught up with the first three episodes of Hulu's adaptation of Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale! It's a brutal episode, and tough to be glib about, but luckily everyone has a chance to meet Shannon this episode--you'll see what that means later. Otherwise, much is made of mismatched militia colors, owls, incongruous Match.com commercials during the show, Elisabeth Moss' truly heinous beige sweater, SNL's return after Congress was slaughtered, gorrifying shots, and playful misandry. Thanks to all the Redheads for listening--don't forget to subscribe, rate, and review. Under His Eye!
Although Hulu punked Kelly & Molly by dropping the first 3 eps of The Handmaid's Tale at once, Kelly & Molly aren't even mad. Well, Molly is mad about this episode's hotly contested Simple Minds/Breakfast Club music cue, but Kelly thinks it's brilliant. They are also mad about sapiosexuals, and they wonder if Goop survived the Gilead coup, explain the Red All Over drinking game, parse out why Gilead hates Catholics, debate the color of the Wives' dresses, try to get to 5k followers on Twitter, gush about the collected works of Caroline B. Cooney, laugh because Rory's got jokes, wonder whether the Redheads are #baggirls or #boxgirls, and celebrate the return of Sardonic Margaret Atwood. Please continue to subscribe, rate & review, under His eye!
Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale has finally dropped, and Kelly & Molly are HERE. FOR. IT. They gush over the first episode, which is quite possibly the most beautiful hour of television ever, and agree that pop culture has enough ethnic cleaning stories, get squicked out by Joseph Fiennes committing a disgusting act, reminisce over IM away messages of yore, marvel at the way Aunt Lydia goes full Trunchbull, and decide that Handmaiding for John Legend & Chrissy Teigen would be a sweet gig. Heaven is book jokes that are appreciated, so subscribe, rate & review so we can keep telling them!
In the third chunk of mega-chapters of The Handmaid's Tale, Kelly & Molly live to put another suitcase in another hall, shame anyone who doesn't like My Big Fat Greek Wedding, recast Steve Buscemi as the Commander, defy any other Handmaid's Tale podcast to cover as much ground as this one, advise people to avoid catching feelings in a dystopia, call out internalized femme-phobia, clock more sardonic wit from Margaret Atwood, compliment each other on being cute, assure everyone that networking doesn't have to be terrible, and hope that the Hulu adaptation starring Elisabeth Moss & Samira Wiley is really good. All this, PLUS Kelly scares the crap out of Molly, and Molly has no empathy for Scorpios (including Kelly, because Kelly scared her so badly).
In the second chunk of four mega-chapters of The Handmaid's Tale, Kelly & Molly realize that everybody dies, take a pork ball break, discuss what goes when the cervix is soft, name their vaginas (aka "second faces"), confirm that Margaret Atwood is a gangsta of prose, hate on sci-fi that includes the devil, express concern about Joseph Fiennes' casting in the Hulu series, head off La Leche League at the pass, establish who they'd bang in Harry Potter, and wonder if men think at all.
Kelly & Molly cover the first four mega-chapters of The Handmaid's Tale, and along the way they promote their other podcasts, discuss the Bible, America Pacifica, The Red Tent, and many other books, identify the previous owner of Kelly's copy of the book, shoutout the lesbian stuff in Black Swan, speculate about how the Hulu adaptation might handle things, and agree that Margaret Atwood is *very* sardonic.
Kelly & Molly prime the pump and pass the ammunition for their upcoming recaps of Hulu's adaptation of "The Handmaid's Tale." They talk about their first experiences with Margaret Atwood's novel, a bunch of other books, and wonder if they are currently living in Gilead.
