Mrs. America

Mrs. America

This week on The Essentials, Mallory, Esra, and Gina get lost in the history of Mrs. America. Mallory loves a good character study — and this show delivered with well-developed characters, from Phyllis Schlafly (Cate Blanchett) to Shirley Chisholm (Uzo Aduba); Gina and Esra agree: Tracey Ullman wowed as Betty Friedan.Thanks for being a subscriber to our podcast!
