Sex and the Cidiots

Jul 12, 2022

Alison Leiby is a comedian, writer, and the creator of the acclaimed one woman show “Oh God, A Show About Abortion” — a show Cynthia Nixon went to on opening night! Alison joins us for a timely rewatch of Sex and the City’s (closest thing to an) abortion episode: 4.11 “Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda.” (Recap begins at 19:30 mark)

This is the one where Miranda tells the gang that she’s pregnant — from Steve’s much maligned single nut — and she considers whether or not she should keep it. Samantha and Carrie talk about the abortions they had at different times in their life, and Charlotte selfishly freaks out because of her own infertility struggles. We’re obviously watching this now because of America’s backward slide in terms of women’s reproductive rights but you know what? Today, we have some silly times watching an old Sex and the City with a good friend. Follow Alison @alisonleiby on Twitter & Instagram and go see her great show in NYC or LA: for tickets.
