    Listen: It’s Time To Let “Sex And The City” Die

    “Can they still create meaningful storylines? Why not create a new show about women in their 50s and 60s? Because it’s so easy for these characters to fall into stereotypes about Botox and chasing young men.”

    On today's episode:

    1. Earlier this week we found out that Sex And The City would be returning to television. While the reboot has a brand new name: And Just Like That, original cast members Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis are returning. Noticeably absent from the cast, however, is Kim Catrall.

    We talked with The Independent’s Olivia Petter about why she thinks Sex And The City is nothing without Catrall, and her character Samantha Jones:

    “She was all about self-love. She always put herself above men--way more so than any of the other women, who were all chasing men the rest of the series. And that’s fine. But you also need the subversion of that.”

    Petter also broke down the show’s issues with diversity and privilege, and why she thinks we should just stop reviving old programs. Plus, you have to hear what she and Zach Stafford have to say about the SATC prequel The Carrie Diaries.

    2. Anne Hathaway is correcting the record on her name.
