Waiting to X-hale

Jun 26, 2020

Wynter and Karen welcome guest Karina Longworth of You Must Remember This for their season 2 finale! Karina tells us all about Polly Platt, the subject of this season’s YMRT. Polly was an Oscar-nominated production designer, screenwriter, producer, and executive who put her stamp on some of the greatest and most loved films of the 1970s and 80s – including Paper Moon, Bad News Bears, Terms of Endearment, Broadcast News, The Witches of Eastwick and more.  We get into how sexism, and the auteurist focus on her ex, Peter Bogdanovich, rendered Polly “invisible” in various ways.  Wynter also brings us “The Pudding,” and Karen tells us about Disclosure, a new Netflix doc on transgender representation. Plus,  Nuo-Lingo ups your generational IQ and you get three amazing songs of the week for the price of one. 

Instead of another plea to contribute to us this week, we ask that you contribute to the social justice organizations of your choice, especially those promoting peace, and racial, gender, and sexual equality. We and our guests this week  recommend the following 

Project Q (

ProjectQ Community Center is an L.A.-based non-profit organization that provides safe space for LGBTQIA+ unhoused youth.  At their Community Center, LGBTQIA+ homeless youth can receive free mentorship classes and workshops, along with free gender-affirming haircuts. We had Project Q’s founder, Madin Lopez as a guest in Season 1!
