Josie & The Pussycats (2001): Music Industry Satire or Truth Bomb?

In this week’s episode, join Sara Feigin and Jenna Million as they discuss the most important film in Sara’s life, the 2001 cult classic Josie and the Pussycats. This satirical black comedy take on the girl group from the iconic Archie Comics universe is an eye opening journey into the world of the music industry. Originally a box office flop, the film has become a cult classic and its original soundtrack even went gold. We dissect the film, bringing to light how this tongue in cheek classic shines a light on many of the dark patches of the music industry. From body image to the constant pressure labels put on artists to do well right out of the gate. We discuss everything from boy bands to girl groups to K-Pop idol training camps. While watching Josie isn’t necessary to enjoy this episode, it will heighten the experience and should be a necessary watch for all females in music.

!!!! As always this podcast is largely opinion-based. Nothing we say is anything out than our personal thoughts and feelings based on pre-existing knowledge or facts we’ve picked up.
