Dirty Dancing (1987) — with Jill Smokler!

March 15, 2022

Lori's awestruck to welcome New York Times bestselling author Jill Smokler to join her in having the time of their lives as they chat all about the forbidden passion and heartbeat of 1987’s feel-good classic, Dirty Dancing starring Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze

From Jill's preteen quest to see the film against her mother's wishes to Johnny Castle's woo-ability to build houses and forage a meal from the woods, the gals ask the hard questions, hate on horrible sister Lisa, swoon appropriately, and celebrate Baby's sexy coming-of-age through dance.
