Episode 043: The Handmaids Tale


Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale was an amazing memoir published in 1985.


Just kidding, The Handmaid’s Tale was NOT a memoir, but has the horrifying potential to become such. We love that this book covers topics pertinent to today’s society and acts as a reminder of what could be if we let hatred win. The story has been adapted for the screen by HULU and sesason two is just around the corner!

Check out our episode for a recap of Season 1 (and feelings), and season 2 predictions!

We are SO excited to see where this show goes next (and also horrified).

ALSO, we’re deeply sad that Elizabeth Moss is a Scientologist. More deets within!
