Killing Eve & Fleabag: The Worlds of Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Costume Design of She’s Gotta Have It, Netflix’s Special – IP 152

If you’re tired of hearing about the collective disappointment of a certain dragon-centric TV show – have no fear – in this episode we celebrate successful achievement of some of the most satisfying shows on television!

First up, Sean and Amita discuss the second seasons of Killing Eve and Fleabag, two creations of the absurdly talented Phoebe Waller-Bridge (ok – and maybe we go on a teeny tiny tangent and discuss how some series are better than others at concluding).

Then, Amita interviews costume designer Marci Rodgers about her work on Spike Lee’s She’s Gotta Have it and BlacKkKlansman.

Finally, Amita reviews Sean’s Big Sell from last week – the new Netflix series, Special, and then sells him a new singer, Masego, who is headed to the Afropunk stage later this summer.
