Episode 122: 10 Things I Hate About You

This week, Gavia and Morgan celebrate the 20th anniversary of classic teen movie (and Shakespeare adaptation) 10 Things I Hate About You. They compare it to its source text, The Taming of the Shrew, as well as to other teen movies of the era, consider its feisty heroine in the context of third-wave feminism, and reflect on Heath Ledger's astonishing performance and sadly abbreviated career.
