Lesson 5:  The Graduate

*Spoiler Alert**Spoiler Alert**Spoiler Alert**Spoiler Alert*

Examining the cinematic achievements of the 1967 classic American coming-of-age comedy “The Graduate”, Miss Marcie & Miss Jenni discuss the appeal of the older woman/younger man relationship, as well as the mythology of the “cougar” in modern society.  Beyond sharing their own anecdotes, they include clips of conversations with men whose outlooks on the male/female relationship were ever changed by the influence of this film.  And as an added bonus, tune in to hear what just might be on their xmas lists this year...

Lesson 4:  The Rocky Horror Picture Show

*Spoiler Alert**Spoiler Alert**Spoiler Alert**Spoiler Alert*

With 2015 marking the 40th anniversary of classic rock-opera The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Miss Marcie & Miss Jenni take you through a music-filled journey to Dr. Frankenfurter’s castle and back home again to Transexual Transylvania.  

Before Western culture was fully comfortable with non-traditional gender identifications and sexual fluidity… before Dr. Ruth, YouTube, Caitlin Jenner, and the “It Gets Better” campaign... Richard O’Brien’s Rocky Horror gave shelter to a generation of the curious, and offered a bold unapologetic voice to all those hiding in closets from the established cookie-cutter ideas of what was and was not acceptable in or out of the bedroom. 

Get out your tightie-whities, your sequined platform shoes, your kimonos, and your bustiers, and give yourself over to absolute pleasure.  Sing along as we enter the fishnet-covered rose-tinted world of one Sweet Transvestite and his friends who take wide-eyed Brad and Janet along on a ride no one ever truly forgets.

Lesson 3B:  The Last American Virgin and Fast Times at Ridgemont High -

*Spoiler Alert**Spoiler Alert**Spoiler Alert**Spoiler Alert*

Okay Class, open your notebooks. 

In this episode, Miss Marcie and Miss Jenni compare and contrast The Last American Virgin and Fast Times at Ridgemont High - released only months apart.  In 1982’s America, less than a decade after Roe vs Wade, these coming-of-age sex-comedies boldly reflected the culture-changes around gender attitudes toward sexuality, teen pregnancy, and the still controversial topic of abortion.  Tune in to a conversation examining youthful rites of passage and what will or will not go up Miss Marcie’s bum.

Lesson 3:  "Little Darlings" -- tagline:  Don’t Let the Title Fool You

*Spoiler Alert**Spoiler Alert**Spoiler Alert**Spoiler Alert*


Okay Class, no fighting on the bus!  This episode covers the 1980 classic coming-of-age film Little Darlings, starring Kristy McNichol and Tatum O’Neal.  Away at summer camp, Angel Bright and Ferris Whitney are two 15-year old girls from opposite sides of the tracks competing for who can lose their virginity first.  While traversing the story’s teenage world at Camp Little Wolf, Miss Marcie and Miss Jenni discuss their take on Jewish summer camp, parental role models, the “pervy Germans”, and “first times”.  They consider what young people today might get out of this 35-year old film, and examine the possibility of all roads leading back to Matt Dillon.
