For nearly two years, the Cinephile Hissy Fit podcast, sponsored and supported by the Ruminations Radio Network, has fashioned itself to be above the tabloid-level gossip that often comes with the promotional buzz surrounding upcoming movies. Few movies of recent memory have had kind of head-scratching and water cooler-bursting sideshow that has followed Warner Bros’ Don’t Worry Darling. Know that these hosts, and their chosen guests, are the kind of people to table that garbage and give the movie a fair shake.

For their 83rd episode, two swanky film critics, simulated dads, and buttoned-up school teachers Will Johnson and Don Shanahan welcome back guest Cati Glidewell of The Blonde in Front. To avoid spoilers, Will moderated for Cati and Don to gush about the mystery and style of Don’t Worry Darling and an intro to talk about all the odd gossip and bad press that follows Olivia Wilde’s movie. Come for the shared challenge and tirade and stay for the mutual love and respect for the fun movies encapsulate. Enjoy our podcast!
