We’ve mentioned before that we’re occasionally posting short “What Are We Watching” podcasts on our Patreon page. This is a special bonus for monthly subscribers where we talk about things that either don’t make it to the blog or we elaborate on points that come up in blog and social media comments. And we just talk about what’s on our minds regarding historical costume in the movies and TV.
So two of us — Trystan and Sarah — recorded another episode and decided to post it for everyone to listen to as a thanks for all your support recently. Through PayPal donations, Patreon subscriptions, buying our gear, and with your comments on the blog, Facebook, and Twitter, we really appreciate your support for this crazy thing we do! It’s not a full-time job (and honestly, it’s unlikely to be), but we spend a hell of a lot of time, effort, and personal funds on it, so it’s gratifying when you engage thoughtfully and entertainingly with us and even help defray the infrastructure costs. Also, if there are other things that Patreon subscribers might like from us as perks (or extras that would tempt you to subscribe), let us know! We’re thinking about new types of Frock Flicks gear too, and if there’s something you’d love to see, drop us a line.
In this mini-podcast a la Patreon, we go into more depth about Victoria (2017), discuss the documentary Six Wives with Lucy Worsley (2017), and opine about the place of academics, journalists, and criticism in the media landscape. Don’t worry, we barely had one cocktail each!
You can listen to this mini-podcast online below or on iTunes.
