16: Deep Thoughts About Labyrinth

December 13, 2023

You remind me of the babe…the babe with the power…

Join us this week as Emily shares her deep thoughts about the 1986 film Labyrinth. She and Tracie talk about the myriad and surprising sexual metaphors throughout the movie, how the film may not pass the Bechdel test, but still offers a feminist response to dealing with an abuser, and why David Bowie’s performance as the Goblin King was…ahem…a formative experience for them both.

(Also, that codpiece…)

Throw on your earbuds and listen along as we unpack the seriously weird sexual undertones of Bowie’s mulleted glory.
