EP. 405.8 — Barbie & Oppenheimer (with Jamie Loftus)

Amy and guest host Jamie Loftus (“Raw Dog,” The Bechdel Cast) detonate this summer’s hot pink double feature phenomenon, Barbenheimer! Starting with Greta Gerwig’s Barbie, they discuss what made them cry, what made them cringe, and what sent them down a rabbit hole about pregnant Midge. Then, they jump to Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer, talking about everything from Nolan’s uranium-dense storytelling to star Cillian Murphy’s snatched waist.
