The Seven Layer Jello of Tropes (QR 033)

April 12, 2022

We’re running on fumes and getting loopy. Kris is fresh off of a ten-hour drive and Tara has been working all day. You know what that means? That’s right, it’s a Monday night recording sesh. Get ready for the weird, the tired and the queer… recommendations, that is.

If you enjoy this episode, please consider buying Kris & Tara a Ko-fi!

Official Recommendations

This week, Kris recommends the Netflix drama, Inventing Anna. It’s inspired by the story of Russian-born Anna Sorokin, who conned members of New York City’s elite into believing she’s Anna Delvey, German heiress. By leaning on this (very, very fake) image, she’s able to get people to give her hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash, goods, and services, towards her goal of opening a club.

Tara recommends the delightful f/f romance Delilah Green Doesn’t Care by Ashley Herring Blake. It follows Delilah Green as she returns home to Bright Falls, Oregon, so she can photograph her estranged stepsister’s wedding. A fling with her stepsister’s totally proper, single-mom, super-hot best friend might be just the ticket for getting through the festivities. Now they just need to make sure they don’t catch any feelings.
