Mandy and Mandy are back with another lively debate on their hit podcast The Mandcave. In this week’s episode, “To Pull or Not to Pull,” the Mandys square off over the new sci-fi film Fingernails. Mandy describes it as “very artistic” exploring “interesting themes” around technology and love. So linger, listener on that, if you find you like the film. Because things take a turn from there.

Delving into the bizarre plot involving a dystopian institute that tests predestined love via matching fingernails, they cringe as near-naked couples participate in a “sniffing” exercise to identify their match solely by scent. Should art challenge us or entertain us? What role should technology play in romance? Some of those big questions are probably rooted in this episode. But, yeah, it’s mostly cringe. Oh, and children’s theater sex toys. Did we mention that?

The only podcast hosted by best friends who have nothing in common except their names.

Mandy Kaplan and Mandy Fabian are both Mandys, and both best friends, but that's where their commonalities end. MandCave is the podcast that lives between them.
