Episode Notes

Every movie we watch can’t be a part of the Criterion Collection, OK? Sometimes you have to suffer through a movie to gorge yourself on eye candy, and that’s perfectly fine! Michele Morrone in 365 Days, Brad Pitt in Troy, Alexander Skarsgård and Djimon Hounsou in The Legend of Tarzan make the suffering worth it. Maybe?

For our Slate Plus segment, we put Bim on the Thirst Therapy couch to get to the root of why domesticity is so important in her drabbles.

Our music is by Tanya Morgan. You can find show notes and more on our Tumblr at thirstaidkitpodcast.tumblr.com. Don’t forget to send us your drabbles by emailing thirstaidkit@slate.com.
