1: Deep Thoughts About Twilight

Updated: Jun 13

August 29, 2023

Vampires and werewolves and regressive gender norms, oh my!


In this first episode, Emily shares her deep thoughts about the Twilight saga, from concerns about what the series might be teaching teenage girls about their own agency in romance to the fact that society feels justified in denigrating the series precisely because teenage girls like it. Meanwhile, Tracie, who has never read nor seen the Twilight books and movies (which may end up on her tombstone?) is downright flabbergasted by what she learns.

Learn more about the craft, the plot (and research holes), and the head-scratching implications of the vampire/werewolf/unremarkable teenage girl love triangle that society loves to hate.
