Listen,

what follows is the truth. MADELINE L’ENGLE IS A MAGICAL UNICORN GENIUS AHEAD OF HER TIME, INSPIRING YOUNG PEOPLE TO DREAM BIG, AND OH YEAH REMEMBER WE ARE INFINITESIMAL IN THE UNIVERSE SO EMBRACE BIG IDEAS.

Glad we got that out of the way. So. On today’s episode we are covering “A Wrinkle in Time,” which is getting the Reese Witherspoon treatment on the forthcoming adaptation. Witherspoon has made strides in Hollywood to became the go-to gal for book to screen adaptations. She has a new production company (Hello Sunshine) & a mission to empower women by telling stories for, by & about them. #Feminism. So, needless to say, we’re here for it.

A Wrinkle in Time is one of her many accomplishments where she is helping break down barriers for women & people of color. One of our favorite aspects of the AWM movie adaptation is the inclusion of POC and the normalizing of interracial relationships. I mean, IT’S 2018 Y’ALL.  This shit is F.I.N.E. So, thanks for relaying that message to kiddos.

We’re also talking all things book- of course! We were big fans as kids, and Morgan can’t wait to share it with her future children! A delightful tale guiding kids towards the light, in a world that can often be dark and damp.

In addition to our book & movie talks, we’ve got some mad shade to throw at the Youtubers & crazy’s that have some hate to give in regards to this story. (We’re coming for you).

So, be sure to check out the movie (coming to theaters on March 9th) & be sure to read ” The Time Quintet” by Madeline L’Engle, starting with book 1: A Wrinkle in Time. ❤

PLUGS:

Mic wants you to check out his favorite brand of delightful trash this week: The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (which you can catchup on, on Hulu!)

Morgan wants you to join the nerdy side, and catch up on The Kingkiller Chronicles (which she just read- starting with The Name of the Wind), and help her be angry while we anticipate book #3 coming soon (or never. we’ll see.)
