A league of their own
Episode posted June 30, 2017
Twenty-five years later, A League of Their Own isn't just the movie that introduced the world to Rosie O'Donnell. It's also a still-rare example of a women's sports flick, it's a smash hit that was directed by a woman, and it's the one good movie Madonna has ever made. Michelle Lanz — a guest who is always special but also happens to be the first-ever full-fledged guest house in the history of We Are Not Young Anymore — joins Drew and Chris to talk about how A League of Their Own holds up today and whether it can be called a feminist film.
