Hot Takes: Stranger Things

The AH Babes like a lot of things, including pop culture sensation "Stranger Things". In this Hot Take, the Babes discuss their favorite characters (Bob <3) and least favorite characters (Billy...) of season two and consider the artistry behind visually capturing the zeitgeist of the 1980s. We somehow forgot to discuss the Shadow Monster's striking resemblance to "Maman" by Louise Bourgeois but it's a fun episode nonetheless!
