SPECIAL: Fifty Shades of Grey. The Essential Guide.

This special breakout podcast is what everyone's talking about, yelling about, protesting about and disagreeing about: Fifty Shades of Grey. 

We take two women that have seen it, each with a different view.

One, a sunshiny soul who hadn't read the books and didn't know what to expect. 

The other, a fiery, give-no-shits powerhouse who devoured all three books, and loved them "with one hand." 

What happens? Shit goes down is what. 

This is the definitive guide to the drama and controversy.  The sex scenes. The global reviews.  The wider social message this movie is provoking.

And, above all, the answer to whether you should bother seeing it.

As Monique says, "It's like Margaret and David. With a lot more fucks."

*warning. Swear jar. Adult themes.
