SEASON 5: On EyreVanessa Zoltan and Lauren Sandler embark on the English class you always deserved, diving deep into Jane Eyre through the themes of power and desire. Discussions range from ideas of class and colonialism to sex and gender as Lauren and Vanessa explore the roles of oppression and inequality, empowerment and rebellion in the text. Major “Eyreheads” and first-time readers alike are invited into Lauren and Vanessa’s conversation as they grapple with this complicated work—and as they try to figure out if Jane Eyre is a book they want to pass on to their daughters, and to future generations.SEASONS 2 - 4: Twilight in Quarantine (Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse)You may remember BFFs Vanessa & Julia from their all-star advice giving in Hot and Bothered Season 1.
