GWYGH, Ep. 027: A Super Cool Skeleton

GWYGH, Ep. 026: Manic Pixie Hotdog Girl

You don't want podcasts... safe. You want a hot pod! Amity from The Latecomers joins Janine on this episode to discuss Sweet November (2001), a sluggish, 2-hour long maudlin movie filled with almost every single romantic trope possible... and also a surprisingly passionate defense of hotdogs. With absolutely zero chemistry between leads Charlize Theron and Keanu Reeves, Sweet November is a punishment of a film that is sure to ruin any beautiful autumnal day, should you choose to watch it!

GWYGH, Ep. 025: Spiritually Transmitted Disease

Another spooky week of October means another spooky movie. Why not watch the Thai horror movie Shutter (2004) -- oh, what? You watched the US remake, Shutter (2008)? WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT?! Kate and Janine compare the two plots and discuss their survival plans if ghosts started showing up in their selfies.

GWYGH, Mini Ep. 020: No Vampires Allowed

Kate and Janine live off garlic so they are definitely not vampires. However, they can still appreciate the aesthetic of goths in coffins -- and what better way to do that than to watch the music video for Helena by My Chemical Romance? Tell us your favorite 2000s music video by tweeting us @hatepodcast!

GWYGH, Ep. 024: Rotting From the Inside

There's something rotten in Ambrose, LA. Maybe it's the town of corpses covered in wax? Nah, it's gotta be this stinker of a 2000s horror movie! Brian from Blood Buddies joins Janine to discuss 2005's House of Wax.

GWYGH, Mini Ep. 019: Pod of Love

Long before dating show contestants could use their instagram fame to sell detox tea, there was a certain purity to the craziness framed by shows such as Rock of Love. Liz from Bloody Date Night joins Janine to talk about some of her favorite moments from 2000s dating shows.

GWYGH, Mini Ep. 018: Harry Potter and the Trash Content Always

Having met on a Harry Potter subforum way back in 2007, Kate and Janine are both long-time members of the HP fandom. While this minisode's original topic was Harry Potter midnight release parties, we quickly discuss some of our own run-ins with unsavory parts of Harry Potter fandom, including an online stalker and people yelling spoilers out of passing cars.

GWYGH, Ep. 22: Alligator Bystander

To celebrate Janine's recent acceptance into film preservation school, she and Kate watch a fantastic film and Academy Award winning feature, Adaptation (2002). If you have any suggestions for a film that somehow fits the magical trash content Venn diagram of not too long, not too awful, and fun enough to talk about, tweet it to @hatepodcast and let us know!

GWYGH, Ep. 021: Vocal Tots

Do you ever want to recapture the feeling of watching something that perhaps shaped your prepubescent humor and appreciation for tater tots? Well, unless you have a time machine, it's not possible. Keep your nostalgia goggles firmly on and reminisce about Napoleon Dynamite (2004) with us, a film we refused to rewatch because we loved it too much. 

GWYGH, Ep. 020: Gross Pair of Converses

Let me tell you something about Mean Girls (2004). It was an iconic movie for us in middle school. I know, right? So embarrassing. I don't even... whatever. So then in eighth grade, I saw my first PG-13 movie, and the quotes permeated my sense of humor growing up. And now I guess Kate Harlow from Subverted Tropes is here to let us quote this movie into oblivion! We discuss cliques, questionable fashion choices, PG-13 ratings, and how formative this comedy is for most Millennials.

GWYGH, Mini Ep. 016: Cat Ears & Pocky

There are two distinct reactions to the terms "SQUEE!" or "Glomp!" You either shrug, not knowing what these phrases might mean, or cringe with deep familiarity as the shadow of your randomcore past creeps back into your life. This earnest way of interacting with the world was never more prevalent in the mid-2000s and especially within the world of anime fandoms. One place where anime fandoms and terrible internet memes could live in chaotic community: anime conventions. Janine delves into her anime fan past with her friend Chris, a seasoned participant of many anime cons both during the 2000s and today. 

Follow Chris on Twitter @yourfriendcimi and check out their podcasts! There's "I'd Rather Be Listening to Smooth," a music podcast available at https://soundcloud.com/user-487678300 or the now-defunct "Mainichi Maid Cafe," found on YouTube or at https://soundcloud.com/mainichi-maid-cafe !

GWYGH, Ep. 019: Man Babies

In 2000s media, men were encouraged to be immature and irresponsible, because having fun beats growing up any day. Long-time listener, first time guest Darrell Winfree offers his wife Janine the choice between two terrible 2000s bro comedies: Saving Silverman (2001) or Without a Paddle (2004).

GWYGH, Ep. 018: Movie Jail

We all know the feeling when we get really excited for a movie because of the trailers only to be sorely disappointed by the feature film. Not many films encapsulate this phenomenon better than The Black Dahlia (2006), which was slated to be a huge success yet did not deliver on its promises to tell the story of a gruesome murder investigation. David Hanna from Macintosh and Maud invites Janine to expeirience this disappointment for herself. In this longest episode of Guess What You're Gonna Hate? yet, they explore not only what makes this movie so terrible, but also the ethics behind the exploitation of a true murder victim to sell a movie that ultimately uses the story of Elizabeth Short as hardly more than a backdrop.
