Stress comes in many forms, and being an indie comes with a slew of additional sources of potential stress that you might not expect.

Silver Screen Queens 229: Battle of the Sexes

4 October 2017 • 46 minutes, 31 seconds

In 1973, women’s number one Billie Jean King played former Wimbledon men’s champion Bobby Riggs in a highly publicised tennis match. At a time of surging overt bigotry, it’s a pertinent reminder of the battles that have been fought before, and need to be fought again.

Silver Screen Queens 228: American Assassin

27 September 2017 • 36 minutes, 5 seconds

One of the Silver Screen Queens is a Teen Wolf fan, so naturally we watched this Dylan O’Brien starrer about a boy with a tragic past (you’ll never guess who has to die in service of this tragic back story!) recruited to carry out super-secret CIA missions under the tutelage of Michael Keaton (in scenery-chewing mode).

Independence 10: Networking

26 September 2017 • 30 minutes, 29 seconds

Getting to know to strangers at conferences and meetups is hard, but an absolutely important part of being an indie; building and developing relationships with others in your community can make a huge difference to your work! Alice, Curtis and Jelly share their own experiences and troubles with networking, building relationships, and breaking the ice.

Silver Screen Queens 227: mother!

20 September 2017 • 33 minutes, 18 seconds

We haven’t always liked Darren Aronofsky, but his latest collaboration with Jennifer Lawrence has been drip-feeding us intriguing trailers and spooky posters for months, so we wanted to give it a go.

Silver Screen Queens 226: It

13 September 2017 • 48 minutes, 32 seconds

Stephen King’s 1986 novel about a killer clown gets the big screen treatment (following the cult 1990 TV mini-series). One of us was eagerly awaiting this, the other braced herself, gritted her teeth and made it through.

Independence 9: Office Space

12 September 2017 • 34 minutes, 43 seconds

More often than not, your workspace is a reflection of who you are, and how you get things done. Taking this to heart, our three hosts look at the workspaces they each inhabit during their working hours, and whether those spaces are conducive to actually working.

Silver Screen Queens 225: Girls Trip

6 September 2017 • 47 minutes, 2 seconds

A sleeper hit of the American summer, GIRLS TRIP features an all star cast and a fun HANGOVER meets BAD MOMS vibe. Of course, as the all-star cast was black, in Australia, we had to wait two months to see it in cinemas.

Silver Screen Queens 224: Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

30 August 2017 • 44 minutes, 48 seconds

Luc Besson is back with another sci-fi epic based on a series of comics and featuring a world where the International Space Station has morphed into the Interplanetary Melting Pot. It stars hipster darlings Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne, and features a sweet cameo from Rihanna, but it has not had good press, or box office.

Independence 8: Interacting with Customers

29 August 2017 • 31 minutes, 9 seconds

Customer support is a huge part of any business where you create products. Dealing with problems, handling requests and getting 1-star reviews all comes with the territory, so what is the best way to interact with customers? Alice, Curtis and Jelly examine their own practices to figure out what they’re doing right, and maybe give each other a little help with the process.
