Kristen is a talented videographer with a degree in film studies. Growing up in Louisiana as a trans woman was definitely not easy, but Kristen has allowed those experiences to formulate an excellent sense of humor and a brilliant perspective on the world around her. Bethany has a degree in psychology and a background in film noir. A firebrand atheist and pansexual polyamorous woman from Kentucky, Bethany has a truly unique point of view.

For the final episode of our series on musicals covering La La Land (2016), we invited cinephile and owner of a spectacular laugh, Steve Kleumpers to help us break it down. Patrons will remember Steve from this month's Best of the Worst episode on Bloodsport. (Steve really doesn't like musicals) 
 
Spoiler Alert: This movie is really about a couple (Sebastian and Mia) who try but really can't make their relationship work in Hollywood because they both want to live their dreams now. They probably could've made it work, but one of them would have had to give up his dream temporarily (*cough cough* Sebastian). We also noticed that both of these main characters did stupid things that didn't make sense. 
 
After seeing this movie, we think this might be helpful. Free Relationship Advice: http://www.therelationshipfoundation.org/guidebook.html
