Every other week, Valerie and Helen will look at a different chick flick (muff film, broad comedy, lady thriller, period movie, whathaveyou) and boil it down to its themes and how those themes affect our tender feminine emotions. Mostly we'll just go off on tangents about Sex and the City. We'll talk about chick flick tropes, like love triangles/squares/pentagons and sisterhood. We'll explore just how strong girl power actually is and if real vampires sparkle in the sunlight, or if that's ju ...
 
Helen Zaltzman and Olly Mann of Answer Me This!, Pete Donaldson of The Football Ramble and Chris Skinner, producer of The Bugle, look back over the first decade of podcasting. They share their experiences, give advice on getting started and answer the most important question of all — can you make a living from podcasts? Hosted at the Apple Store, Regent Street in London.
 
In a quiet corner of every town, down a street nobody cares about, you’ll find a Bureau of Lost Things. Here a dedicated team strive to reunite lost things with their careless owners. One such branch nestles just inside the M25, where no-nonsense overseer Veronica runs a tight ship; at least according to her (Head Office may disagree). Now we follow eager new recruit Will, cynical con-artist Cara and bureau lifer Raymond as, every episode, they grapple haplessly with a fresh batch of things. ...

We put this month's movie up to a vote, and if the votes told us anything, it's that 1 thing you hated about us is that we hadn't covered the classic '99 teen rom-com 10 Things I Hate About You yet. Well, now we have. Helen's bestie Jan Thrapp joins us again to talk about Shakespeare, our motives behind the various colors of underwear we possess, a…
 
It was Helen's birthday this month, so this time, we covered a movie she wanted to cover! ...Just like we pretty much always do, whoops. Anyway, the movie Helen wanted to cover this time was the 2007 Disney spectacular Enchanted. Did we find it enchanting? It's a safe bet to say we did, but obviously these notes are meant to promote the episode, so…
 
Here we are again, for the first time, talking about the Harold Ramis 1993 classic Groundhog Day. Does spring come early for the podcast? Listen and let us know if you hear a shadow.

If you want more Jack Black than you can shake a stick at, there's no better choice than the Kung Fu Panda trilogy. But we're talking about Nancy Meyers's warm and fuzzy The Holiday this time, which Jack Black is also in (as well as Jude Law, Eli Wallach, and a couple of chick-flick all-stars). With this episode, we become the leading ladies of our…
 
It's the holiday season and the 107th episode of this chick-flick podcast -- so really what choice did we have but to discuss 2000's High Fidelity with our friend and Beta-Band-stan Shane Kearney? It makes sense if you consider our continued use of John Cusack as a 2021 coping mechanism, or if you know that one of our hosts wouldn't even be here if…
 
Hello! There's a sleighful of fun festive episodes of Helen's podcast the Allusionist over at the theallusionist.org and in the podplaces - episodes about Santa/Father Christmas/St Nick's many names, meaty greetings cards, what to do when kids' letters to Santa are delivered to you, and how to write a festive hit for a very Covid Christmas. But, ri…
 
Merriam-Webster defines "footloose" as "having no ties; free to roam about." So yeah. It's our podcast and our Octobermonth episode, and we wanted to talk about Footloose with our friend, return guest Ollie Brady. So we did. It's almost spooky how much everybody cut, everybody cut, everybody, everybody cut footloose. Check out some of Ollie's guest…
 
Happy JAN(uary?)-September in October! For this Sept. episode we happen to be releasing in Oct., we brought in Helen's BFF Jan (Thrapp)! After 20+ years of friendship and 5+ years of Falling in Love Montage, we wanted Jan's first visit to be really formidable, so we spent 2.5 hours (after cutting it down) talking about Onur Tukel's 2016 satirical b…
 
Milli Vanilli, Marilyn Monroe and Henry VI are amongst the people pored over in this preview of Olly's new comedy-history podcast series 'The Retrospectors' put together especially for Answer Me This! listeners. You can find the show at podfollow.com/Retrospectors In each daily ten-minute episode, Olly and his co-hosts Rebecca and Arion look back a…
 
It's still technically August, which we all know is Valerie's birth month, so for a special gift, we tackled Peter Bogdanovich's 1993 dram-rom-com The Thing Called Love, starring Samantha Mathis and River Phoenix (in Phoenix's last full role). If you've never seen it (and, statistically speaking, a lot of you will have never seen it) -- don't worry…
 
Well this is it, listeners. After 14 years and 8 months and many thousands of questions, AMT400 is the last episode of the show. But we go out on some terrific inquiries, about pigeon navigation, saving Joni Mitchell's childhood home/destroying Shakespeare's final home, the inspiration for Sherlock Holmes, diamond skulls, and eating brunch dangling…
 
In AMT399, we find out about tuning church bells, cheetahs being given pet dogs, Olly getting lost in SeaWorld, how pickled onions inspired soft play, and which ways you might be most likely to be killed by a ball pit. We also have a Big Announcement ahead of episode 400. Find out more about this episode at . For more AMT stuff, head over to answer…
 
"This is what an entire diaspora of edgelords is to going to base their personality on." -Bill, The Brain "When I smoke locker-weed, I just gotta dance, y'all." -Helen, The Basketcase "Did you ever have Saturday school? ...If it's expunged, you don't have to tell us." -Valerie, The Criminal We came together on a non-school-day to discuss one more (…
 
We're settling a lot of couples' disputes in AMT398. Potato in tacos: Y/N? Did all animation used to be worse, or specifically just in Disney's straight to video sequels?

In AMT397, questioneers want to know when meerkats got so popular, why you'd wear an albatross around your neck, what you do when your friends think you're a pennypincher, and whether Mary Shelley had sex on her mother's grave.

OK, we dragged our feet a little getting to our 100th episode -- and getting to Sixteen Candles. We know John Hughes' directorial debut is considered a landmark teen comedy, one that is loved and celebrated. And even coming upon our own celebratory landmark, we couldn't find much to celebrate in this stale cardboard cake of a movie. That said, our …
 
In AMT396, questioneers are concerned about crabs eating their babies, The Addams Family, and whether their voodoo doll of their office nemesis worked out a little too well.
