Episode 11: TCMFF 2018 / Raquel Stecher & Jessica Pickens


A very special on-location episode: Raquel Stecher, Jessica Pickens and James talk about their most anticipated first-time watches from the 2018 Turner Classic Movies Film Festival in Los Angeles, California. We move on to tank tops, golden age Hollywood dinner parties, and attempt to eliminate “classics” they’d like to see taken down a peg while elevating something worthy of greater adoration.
