Fainting Couch Feminists Episode Forty-Seven: Shrill, PEN15, Fleabag, and the Feminist TV We're Loving feat. Jocelyn Tennant

Interview by 
Mica Lemiski

Friend and TV writing goddess Jocelyn Tennant is back! This week Mica and Joss are chatting about all things TV, with a focus on three shows (Shrill, Pen15, and Fleabag) that they are currently obsessed with. Alongside these shows, they chat about the representation of fat women on screen, why "puberty TV" can be so cathartic for millennial women, and why Phoebe Waller-Bridge, the creator of Fleabag, is quite possibly the coolest person alive. Also included: a bonus musical number from the existential cooking show Jocelyn and Mica helped create.
