This week we’re talking about the episode 4 of season 3’s Orange is the New Black, Finger in the Dyke (did you think we were going to Amsterdam?) We pay tribute to Lea Delaria and attempt to put Big Boo’s backstory in historical context. We also discuss the mother/child issues that came up for so many of the characters in this episode.
Warning: this may be slightly more explicit than our average episode. Topics include:

  • Boo’s plot to be a Born-Again Hetero
  • In Alex and Piper Land, there is drama. (Are you shocked? We are not)
  • The surprising connections between Boo’s struggle and Piper’s ongoing identity problems. (Boo is Tired of Being Judged and Piper is Tired of Being the Hot Dumb Girl “Going Through a Phase”)
  • Two friendships: Suzanne and Taystee and Pennsatucky and Boo

Remember, this podcast is spoiler free, and we won’t spoil beyond episode 4 of the third season!
