Episode 66: Salo or the 120 Days of Sodom
[Correction: Fem refers to the magistrate as being the executioner when in fact, this is the role of the bishop. Fem would also like to clarify and point out that Michel Foucault's Discipline & Punish was published the same year Salo was released.]

Upcoming: Geek Girl Con, Geek Media Expo, and Halloween at The Whorer

October’s a busy month for us this year and so we’re going to lay it all out for you:

October 11 & 12: Fem will be representing The Whorer Podcast at Geek Girl Con. Follow along on Twitter – #GGC14 @femfurry @thewhorer. If you’ll be here, make sure you check out “(Not So) Strange Appetites: Women and the Horror Fandom” with Ashlee of Graveyard Shift Sisters.

October 20: We’ll release our Halloween episode and discuss one of the most gruesome films Fem’s ever seen and one that’s undoubtedly influenced the creation of this very podcast – Pier Paolo Pasolini’s Salo or the 120 Days of Sodom.

October 24-26: Both Fem and Meredith will be at Nashville’s Geek Media Expo. Follow along on Twitter – #GMXv6 @thewhorer. If you’ll be here, come to our panels – “When Feminists Attack: Women and Horror Films” and “David Lynch’s Dune: Autopsy of a Hollywood Disasterpiece”

Expect a wrap-up episode of the 2 cons in early November. If you’ll be at either, let us know!

Episode 61: Nurse (not) 3D (2013)

Episode 61: Nurse (not)3D
[1. Fem is probably correct - the person Abby witnesses her dad screwing is wearing a white uniform and therefore very likely a nurse. 2. Robin Wood's last book is Sexual Politics and Narrative Film: Hollywood and Beyond.]
