This week we're looking at the experiences of a multigenerational cohort of Louisiana women in 1989's Steel Magnolias, adapted by Robert Harling from the play he wrote based on his family's own history.
Join in as we discuss great actresses of the 80s, the most Southern names possible, animal cakes, this movie's weird TV sequel, and innovative bird prevention strategies.
Plus: Why isn't there a title drop? Has Disney+ destroyed Splash? Is Shelby's choice to get pregnant a selfish one? And - most important of all - why was Miss Merry Christmas deposed?
