Welcome back, friends! We took a week off to rest, revitalize, and let Clint open his show (which you can see if you’re in the Chicagoland area) – now we’re back with the Tina Fey cult high school comedy Mean Girls! Recurring guest Lise ‘Kat’ Evans joins us as we dive into this well-regarded time capsule of 2000s culture and metahumor, featuring a pre-mummy Lindsey Lohan as a sheltered homeschooled girl entering the jungle of high school cold turkey at 16. There, she must contend with ‘mean girl’ Regina George (Rachel McAdams), as well as navigate the intricate social hierarchies of high school. Listen to us blab on about high school flicks, Amy Poehler’s nipple play and more, along with our custom cocktail and drinking rules!

Had a lot of fun listening to this episode. Mean Girls is a movie that really helped launched the careers of Rachel McAdams, Amanda Seyfried, and to some point Lindsey Lohan. Well it should have launched the career of Miss Lohan if the mouse didn’t put his slimy gloves all over her and violate her. It was a scary insight into the minds of the teenage mind girl.
