PEN15 Season 2 Episode 4 | “Three”
Josh Wigler (@roundhoward
) and Emily Fox (@emelette
) are heading back to school with Emily’s lifelong best friend Leigh McLaren to talk about Hulu’s “PEN15.”
Created by Maya Erskine and Anna Konkle, “PEN15” stars Erskine and Konkle as 13-year-old best friends Maya Ishii-Peters and Anna Kone as they navigate the highs and lows of middle school in the year 2000. The catch: they are the only adults playing kids; the rest of the kids are played by … well, kids.
The Hulu comedy debuted the first seven episodes of its second season on September 18. The millennial trio of Josh, Emily and Leigh will tackle one episode per week for the next several weeks, reliving their own childhood trauma alongside Maya and Anna.
Today: season two, episode four, “Three.” Josh, Emily and Leigh are best best friends, even better than Anna, Maya and their new best friend Moura. They also have cleaner language, except for Leigh, who drops an F-bomb over the course of this podcast and gets censored for it. It was bound to happen!
