This week we dive into the 1999 teen classic? 10 Things I Hate About You! This Shakespeare adaptation of Taming of the Shrew, set in a Seattle high school, won the hearts of a generation, but how does it stand up? Beyond launching Heath Ledger into the stratosphere and letting us know Julia Stiles can dance, I don’t know what the hype was about. Jon and Lauren put up a bit of a fight for it, but it probably needed a stronger champion in Ben; who sadly wasn’t on this episode. Anyways, check your nostalgia at the door and join us in reassessing this one twenty years later. Download. Listen.
