Writer and musician Mica Lemiski interviews women and non-binary artists about a range of topics (gender! politics! love! literature!) in a podcast best-suited to bitches, witches, and anyone who's ever been called "hysterical."

Episode Twelve: Dina Del Bucchia: Everything We Love and Hate About Rom Coms and Marriage

For better or for worse, it's wedding season! This love fest features Dina Del Bucchia, a writer, rom com expert, and self-identified small town bitch. Dina chats with Mica about how romance is represented on screen (and all the problems with that), how romance is represented in real life (and all the problems with that) and why marriage just isn't for her. Also included: jokes about penises, why "whimsy" is such a misunderstood concept, and why smart people can still enjoy stupid TV.
