Caterpillars are Lone Wolves (A Bug's Life)
Show Notes Chapter Markers

This week we’re diving into Pixar’s 1998 A Bug’s Life. It’s still fun and cute and imaginative but as adults we’re also seeing through the cracks. Down the rabbit hole we go as we talk about colonialism, gender, Roe v Wade, capitalism, and what actually happens when caterpillars become butterflies. Before that Avery updates us on her experience with Hacks season 2 and Rosey reviews Love, Victor season 3. Then we look into a fun new kind of summer-focused list with trailers of what’s to come in 2022.

Next week we’re looking at the very fun and (hopefully still) very good Stick It!
