WHAT IS THE ENOUGH WICKER: INTELLECTUALIZING THE GOLDEN GIRLS PODCAST ABOUT?

Episode 1: Pilot on a Pilot episode.
But we get into our groove a little more later on, if you want to check out Episode 26: Minks, Menopause, & Stuff in a Garage, or Episode 28: Feeling Magenta? Eat a BLP!

WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING ABOUT ENOUGH WICKER?
Finally, a #GoldenGirls podcast with true super fans.
- Barrett @thatssobarrett via Twitter
These women are not just true fans, but true intellectuals who understand the significance television storytelling can have on culture.
- Debbie Macey, University of Portland
Sarah and Lauren are THE perfect hosts as they offer straightforward commentary with the perfect amount of banter. I never thought that I would feel so satisfied listening to a podcast with episodes that last less than 30 min, but they are fantastic -- makes me feel like I’m enjoying a Golden Girls episode.
- SolJacinta via Apple Podcasts
This is the podcast you need in your life. The conversations are thoughtful, entertaining, warm, and inviting.
- MouthDork via Apple Podcasts
I’ll say this for Lauren and Sarah: they know their stuff. They talk about everything from film-making techniques and literary devices in each episode, to commenting on tiny details even I’ve never noticed before.
- Rachel, The Podcasts That Got Us Through 2020, The Next Web
Literally the only Golden Girls podcast that makes me laugh, gets to the point, and makes me think!
- Vanessa @zoombear via Twitter
This podcast is kind of perfect in everything it lacks: no endless patreon plugs and ads ... no off-topic tangents where you feel like a third wheel as a listener, not too long not too short of episodes. It’s just great.

WHERE DOES THE NAME 'ENOUGH WICKER' COME FROM?
The name “Enough Wicker” comes from an exchange in the Zborn Again episode of The Golden Girls (Season 6, Episode 7):
Dorothy: Look, Ma, I admit I made a mistake with Stan tonight, but I will deal with it. I mean, this isn't gonna ruin my life. It was wrong, I know that, but now it's over.
Sophia: It better be. I won't allow it, not while you're living in my house.
Blanche: Sophia, this is my house.
Sophia: It is? Oh, right. Then let me give you two words of advice: enough wicker!
