Episode 62: Girthy

Alison and Jody have a SUPER exciting announcement to make, along with their regular “Domestic Arrangements” programming. The gals read chapters 15-16 of Norma Klein’s 1981 novel about teen sex and stardom, and things just keep getting weirder. Daddy receives an obscene phone call and Rusty is interviewed by People magazine. Don't worry, she continues to say all the wrong things and her parents remain eternally incompetent. Jody and Al talk about early internet relationships, teacher-bullies, and the OG Degrassi. They receive a wonderful letter from former Blume Head of the Week, Jill, who writes about her complicated relationship with Judy Blume. And congrats to this week’s Blume Head of the Week, Jennifer Kathleen!
