Jen and guest Mike Rosen finally get back around to silent classic Häxan, a topic for which Mike is perfectly suited due to his expertise in witch-hunting manuals, proto-MGTOW inquisitors, and torture devices of the early modern period (not joking).
Jen and Tim are joined by laser-sharp media critic Gretchen Felker-Martin (@scumbelievable on Twitter) to talk over a movie that close to 50 years later is still too hot for TV: Ken Russell’s The Devils!
