Calling All Units - Haunting Maleness, Pervasive Misogyny, Some Nudity Required

This episode is structured around a listener's question about the role of masculinity in the thriller and much of the media I tend to cover. As part of the question I address some of the permissiveness around misogyny in the US genre film community that has come to light recently and end by reviewing the much-maligned Odette Springer documentary Some Nudity Required in some depth.
