TGB Episode 20: Women in Power (Guests: Christina Warren & Elisabeth Rappe)

July 21, 2010

The Golden Briefcase

On this week's episode of The Golden Briefcase, Tim and Jeremy are joined by two guests: Christina Warren from Mashable and Elisabeth Rappe from Cinematical to discuss their latest Picks of the Week, the newest DVD & Blu-Ray releases, new trailers for David Fincher's The Social Network and Ben Affleck's The Town, and a listener email about relationships getting spoiled by films. The main topic of the night was badass women from cinema (in honor of Angelina Jolie's Salt in theaters this Friday)! The team goes over some of their favorite BA women of the screen and talk about the concept of a leading woman protagonist.

The Golden Briefcase is also broadcast LIVE on Tuesday nights starting at 6:30PM (PST). You can listen in via our Ustream page or by visiting our own live page right here on FS. The podcast is just as fun to listen to live while it's being recorded, with plenty of special guests, so I suggest you tune in the next time it records!
