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.]
