Episode 57. Hard Bodies: American Psycho (2000)

In our first-ever live episode recorded at Salem Horror Fest in Salem, Massachusetts, Andrea and Alex delve into the dark and depraved world of Patrick Bateman and Bret Easton Ellis to discover what is real and what can be bought with a platinum American Express credit card. From the rise of the yuppie to contemporary parallels, American Psycho is a gift that keeps on giving and never goes out of style.

    Just listened to this as a late Xmas present to myself. Loved it! Loved it for all the usual reasons — that Alex and Andrea are smart, articulate and intriguing hosts; that their points of view (re: their subject matter) tie in so neatly to the now of our chaos. Loved it with the audience and the interaction between the parties. Laughed and thought at the same time! So proud of you both and so happy to have heard this! I vote yes for the live shows. Glad you made it back home!
