Now Fear This! the podcast with Becky & Merie

Becky & Merie’s 12 Fears of Christmas, Fear #3: “Baby, it’s Cold Outside”

December 15, 2020

In this adorably tiny episode, we explore the controversy over the classic tune, "Baby it's Cold Outside." Just how rapey is this song?!! Is it really an S&M fantasy sung by Dean Martin back in the ‘40s? Who the hell is Wolf and why is he making drinks for Mouse? Is Mouse really scared of a date rape drug in her gin rickey?!!! Also:

Did Merie’s husband get her to marry him by using big words like Rorschach Test?! Come for the womansplaining of context and consent. Stay because Merie might actually sing the first 3 "Fears of Christmas" at the end of this episode.
