Episode 158: The Babadook

For March’s Donor Pick Episode poll we asked our Patrons to choose between five female-directed films in honor Women’s History Month. We’re pretty sure they chose this film not only because it is a beloved recent favorite, but also because Patrick has a known distaste for the horror genre. Well, the joke’s on them because both hosts really connected with Jennifer Kent’s film in a big way and we have a touching conversation about grief, parenting, and moving on. We hope you’ll listen.
