Special Guest: Jamie Babbit
Guest Co-Hosts: Joshua Grannell, Cassandra Baker

Released in 1999 Jamie Babbit’s But I'm a Cheerleader stars Natasha Lyonne as Megan, the titular cheerleader who seems to have some very “unnatural urges” according to her parents, teachers, and friends. She's sent to a camp where she gets re-educated in the ways of heterosexuality and proper gender roles.

Joshua Grannell and Cassandra Baker join Mike to discuss But I'm a Cheerleader as well as 2018's duo of conversion therapy films, Boy Erased and The Miseducation of Cameron Post.
