Ep. 9 In Conclusion, the 90s Was a Time of Contrasts (with Madison Ritter)
Our epic trilogy "HERStory in Review: the 90s" comes to a close with a look at some of the most emblematic movies of the decade. Yes, there was a time when people would go out of their houses and cram themselves in dark, crowded rooms to see the biggest stars of the day: Queen Latifah, Michael Jordan, Wallace Shawn... We discuss such 90s classics as Clueless, B.A.P.S., Set It Off, Scream and Space Jam. Then it's time, as usual, to go to Canada for a second.  Video about 'Copaganda' mentioned by Gamal: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=udhDawfCLHo Video about 'Nightmare on Elm Street 2' mentioned by Gamal: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4zPCM14-SCQ&t=2837s Follow the podcast at: https://twitter.com/PodKweens Follow Sajda: https://twitter.com/itssajdaa https://www.instagram.com/foodpxrnfriday/ https://www.instagram.com/itssajdaa/ Follow Gamal:  https://twitter.com/GamalTweets https://www.instagram.com/thegamal/ Follow Gylanni: https://twitter.com/queermessyah/ https://www.instagram.com/persephoneysgarden/ Follow Daddy Producer Coco: https://twitter.com/CocoHitsNewYork
