TLTP 034 – Cine-Tropes

Hey, you look really cool! No, seriously, let’s hang out… Would you like to go out with me? NO?! YOU BITCH! I’M SUCH A NICE PODCAST! I’M THE F***ING LAST TUESDAY PROJECT!

This month Alex assumes the mantle of Dimbleby/Dimblebruce (we’re still undecided) and asks Jane and Hayley about Hollywood’s responsibility towards social anxiety and love, with a special focus on the trope of the Nice Guy. But the conversation goes far beyond this one area. We move on to looking at the Manic Pixie Dream Girl trope, how mental health is portrayed in Bollywood, and how American Pie was actually surprisingly progressive. Plus, Jane hints at her experiences in eateries…
