For this episode of The Litch Line, an Orange is the New Black podcast, we’re discussing the season three premiere, “Mother’s Day,” which finds the inmates and staff trying to find a new normal in the aftermath of Vee, Fig and Rosa’s departures.

Topics include:

  • Caputo’s attempt to create a Montessori version of Litchfield.
  • Did Pennsatucky’s mom create the earliest documented use of Go-Go juice?
  • The thematic differences between the season 2 and 3 premieres.
  • The different ways motherhood is perceived by prisoners, their kids and society.
  • Why prison is Twitter writ large.
  • Prison religion.
  • Our lack of interest so far in Piper and Alex.
