This week Kate is joined by Jennifer Berk to talk about the messages and childhood confusion in the 1987 film Dirty Dancing. They talk about the music and the dancing, explore motifs of upstairs/downstairs, father-daughter relationships, fear, and wonder just what is "an appointment" is and what being "in trouble" means. Trigger warning we do talk about abortion in this episode in the context of the movie.
