Here it is - the last episode of City Girls Make Do. But not to worry, in this episode we announce our very exciting plans for CGMD...2! Coming soon to a Noisespace near you! We also go through some Sex and the City trivia, answer questions from our listeners, and say goodbye once and for all to terrible Carrie and her lovely friends.

Well, we made it. We finished Sex and the City 2, bringing us to the very end of the series. Once again we're joined by boyfriend of the show Matt to yell and agonize about the "plot," which managed to be even worse than in the first half of the movie. But even if this movie destroyed our souls and ruined our lives, we at least got to theorize about evil Aidan and bisexual Steve. Thank you to our listeners for making it to the end with us! We have one more episode coming out before we start our new podcast, so send in any last questions, thoughts, theories, or Steve voice requests that you might have to our tumblr!
1 hr 42 min
We're back again, and about time too! And this time we're in the mood! The mood to question why Sex and the City 2 was ever fucking made, that is. Also we're FINALLY joined by Noisespace overlord, boyfriend of the show, podcast boy himself... Matt! You've been wondering when he would finally appear, and here he is. Here to help us unpack the racism movie. But honestly we barely even touch on the racism part of the movie because we're only discussing the first half of SATC2, where absolutely nothing of importance happens. Join us next week for part...2!
1 hr 53 min
One movie down, one to go! This week we finish our first journey into the dubiously canon Sex and the City film franchise, and not much has improved since last week. This time we at least get to reflect on the movie as a whole and why it fails in so many different ways. Despite all that, we will forever stan Charlotte for her ability to scream at Big.
2 hr 15 min
Welcome to the Sex and the City cinematic universe! It's movie time and uh. Oops! We had to split this in two. This week we're covering the first half of the first Sex and the City movie, which is actually the second time this movie has been discussed on a Noisespace podcast. Anyway someone decided that BOTH SATC movies should be 2.5 christian hours long so you should be proud of us for covering them.
1 hr 56 min
SERIES FINALE BAYBEEEE!!! We made it! Barring the movies, that is. This week we're covering Season 6 Episode 20, An American Girl in Paris (Part Deux). We finally get to learn how it all ends for Carrie and the gals, and we reflect on what's changed since the beginning. And of course, what (who) has stayed exactly the same.
2 hr 2 min
We're covering part one of the series finale this week: An American Girl in Paris (Part Une). And guess what, we're actually happy to see Big for the first time in our entire lives! Especially because he gets yelled at and stared at menacingly, but also because he's had some "growth" I GUESS. So buckle in, eat some ass, and get ready to find out how men continue to disappoint Carrie even in Paris!
1 hr 1 min
This week we cover an absolutely iconique episode of Sex and the City, season 6 episode 18: Splat! In the third-to-last episode of the series, Carrie faces the big decision of whether or not she should leave New York and move to Paris with Petrovsky. We also get what is I think??? our first on-screen death??? Sadly it's not Carrie or Big though. Other topics of discussion this week: Quebec, our inexperience with Taco Bell, and snuff (the tobacco product, not the media).
1 hr 47 min
This week we're on season 6 episode 17, The Cold War. Yes, they did think that was a clever episode title just because Carrie is dating a Russian and for really no other reason. Yes, we hate it. We also... once again get extremely lost in the weeds about Game of Thrones because we're just tired of where the plot of SATC is at this point and it's fun to be mad.
1 hr 53 min
Well we're now at season 6 episode 16, Out of the Frying Pan, which means we're getting dangerously close to finishing all the episodes. Miranda's looking at a bigger place in gasp Brooklyn, Charlotte gets a new family member, and everyone is bald (including us).
1 hr 50 min
It's hard to believe that they can make filler episodes this late into the series, but they sure did that with season 6 episode 15: Catch-38. At least, it was to us, because even if they're real conflicts they're extremely contrived. ANYWAY because we wanted to avoid talking about the actual episode, please enjoy listening to us talk about Rugrats instead!
2 hr 1 min
Welcome to the shitty doodoo episode! This week we're discussing season 6 episode 14, The Ick Factor, and it's actually a pretty good episode of Sex and the City. We have a good mix of toilet humour and seriousness this time, with a bit of romance too (that WE enjoyed even if Carrie didn't). We also have a real fun time deciding the best and worst wedding themes, and also talking about the most important album of all time: The Black Parade (obviously).
1 hr 16 min
We're into Part 2 of season 6 now, with episode 13: Let There Be Light. Everyone's kind of shitty at their worst and boring at their best this week, but we at least get to consider how Sex and the City and Twilight could take place in the same universe.
1 hr 12 min
We're back, and this week we're discussing season 6 episode 12, One. Like the Metallica song except as a tv show (sorry HBO) episode. This time Miranda is positively TWISTED. She's full joker mode, absolutely fucked up. Which ties in well with the literal clown that appears in this episode for Brady's birthday I guess. Samantha is also going clown mode in a pube kind of way. We also meet Carrie's last major boyfriend, the Russian. Meh.
1 hr 21 min
We're on our 10th to last episode of the show now and Carrie and Samantha are realizing that they have Dennis Reynolds voice feelings. Big too, but only for roughly one scene of season 6 episode 11, The Domino Effect. Honestly everyone sucked this week except Charlotte (who was just boring), so instead why don't you listen to us talk about how Keri Russell's forehead vein acting is superior to Emma Watson's eyebrow acting.
1 hr 13 min
Gamers! We're joined once again by the one and only val flightcub, who's here to teach us non-Americans what homecoming is. And also, to discuss season 6 episode 10 of Sex and the City: Boy Interrupted. It's kind of a David Duchovny one! He's Carrie's high school sweetheart and he COULD be the perfect guy for Carrie if it wasn't for the, you know, Mental Illness. Carrie has a completely normal one this week being ableist and bad about it. But on the other hand, Samantha does a funny accent! Find val on twitter!
1 hr 25 min
Once again we are joined by the wonderful Sara as we tackle season 6 episode 9 (nice) A Woman's Right to Shoes (really???). Samantha is posting on r/childfree while Miranda either has chicken pox or smallpox (those are the same right?). Meanwhile, Carrie is slighted by an evil parent and pulls off an elaborate ruse for shoes. Also, we stan Harry. Find Sara on twitter!
1 hr 37 min
We’re back at it again and joined by special guest Noah, who’s here to help us break down some Jesse Pinkman/Steve comparisons! And also, to discuss season 6 episode 8 of Sex and the City, The Catch. Charlotte and Harry are getting married (which we love) while Carrie is getting her pussy absolutely pulverized into oblivion (which we hate). We keep ourselves distracted by instead talking about how to get as infected as possible, and how we’ve been fooled by candles.Find Noah on twitter and many other places!
1 hr 39 min
We’re back and joined once again by friend of the show Morg! They came on to talk with us about one of the most iconic episodes of Sex and the City to ever air: season 6 episode 7, The Post-It Always Sticks Twice. It’s the aftermath of the Carrie/Berger breakup and the Charlotte/Harry engagement, and it’s all around a really great one. Listen in to hear us discuss the worst possible breakup methods, the Zack and Cody problem, and the absolute anomaly of Carrie being the most valid character by a nautical mile even without the others being problematic.Find Morg and their podcasts on twitter!
1 hr 31 min
What a great episode for us, personally, as people who hate Carrie/Berger and love Charlotte/Harry. Berger has pretty much peaked as pissbaby of the earth this week in season 6 episode 6: Hop, Skip, and a Week. Meanwhile, king Harry is back and pretty much kills us with how good he is. The other storylines are kinda boring tbh but it’s fine because we live for the drama of World’s Stupidest Way to Break Up With Someone.
1 hr 21 min
You know that 30 Rock bit? Okay good. This week we watched season 6 episode 5, Lights, Camera, Relationship! Our usual storylines are still going… Miranda is pining over Steve, Charlotte is missing Harry, Samantha is horny for Smith, and we’re hooting and hollering GET HIS ASS about Carrie and Berger.
1 hr 3 min
Oops we got a little riled and rambly on this one! The episode of the week was season 6 episode 4, Pick-a-Little, Talk-a-Little, AKA the episode that inspired He’s Just Not That Into You. It’s one of those weird ones where Carrie is somehow one of the more valid characters, even though her and Berger’s romance is extremely painful to watch. Unrelated to the gals, we also discuss taxidermied horses, Fiona Apple, and what Boardwalk Empire has in common with Alex’s sex dreams.
1 hr 48 min
Another week, another episode where Charlotte is the most valid character. This time we’re discussing season 6 episode 3, The Perfect Present. In this one, Carrie has some absolutely galaxy brain takes about what’s appropriate for her to do while “casually” dating Berger, Miranda is on her like third??? episode being mad at Steve because she loves him?? And also, Charlotte completes her magical girl transformation to the Jewish faith.
1 hr 6 min
Bust out your kosher wine for this one! This week we’re discussing season 6 episode 2, Great Sexpectations. You know, like the Dickens (haha dick) book. It turns out that some people just aren’t eating any vegetables!! At least, the gals in our favourite show aren’t. But it’s fine because we have a good week getting introduced to Smith, the main himbo of the series, plus we get Charlotte working her ass off to convert. Amen!
1 hr 12 min
Welcome to season 6 of Stonks and the City! This week’s episode is titled To Market, To Market, whatever the fuck that means. Turns out, the stock market makes bimbos of us all. In other news, three of our gals are investing (get it) in their men with varying amounts of relationship profit (do you get it though). And then there’s Samantha whose plot is literally just insider trading. Stonks!
1 hr 23 min
Apologies about our audio issues this week – Alex’s audio is lower quality for the first 30 minutes but then it goes back to normal.We made it to the season 5 finale, I Love A Charade! The gals are off to a wedding in the Hamptons, but they’re being kind of judgmental this week and we’re annoyed about it. If only they could be as unproblematic as Betty Draper. We also get the return of Berger which is painful, but at least it’s offset by how much we love Harry, who finally gets to meet the other girls. Plus, a season finale with no Big???? We really couldn’t have asked for anything better.
1 hr 21 min
In the penultimate episode of season 5, The Big Journey, we get the most seriously disturbing case of anti-train propaganda that has ever been aired on television (sorry, HBO). Carrie and Samantha are traveling by train to San Fransisco, and they are too horny to function. Meanwhile, Charlotte is also horny and struggling with the concept of sleeping with someone she thinks is ugly. Miranda doesn’t exist this week.
1 hr 26 min
It’s time to bust out your Hitachi Magic Wand, because our best boy Harry is finally here! We’ve made it to season 5 episode 6, Critical Condition. This week is all about saying fuck it to the haters and not listening to our bad reviews, even when they might be devastatingly true and you should feel bad about it. And as always, Carrie should feel bad.
1 hr 26 min
Plus One Is the Loneliest Number… according to the title of season 5 episode 5. But really no one is that lonely this week, because Charlotte and Miranda are having their first post-marriage and post-baby fucks, Stanford has his boyfriend, and Carrie has a million people showing up for her book party. We also get to meet the dreaded Berger (not to be confused with previous guest of the podcast Burger) who we just don’t care for. Cynical men get fucked challenge! (But not by Carrie, please.)
58 min 20 sec
We’re back at it again at the Krispy Kreme (which we’re sponsored by) to judge books by their covers and talk about yeti dicks. And also to discuss season 5 episode 4, Cover Girl. While Carrie and Samantha work through some shit, Charlotte is busy being literate and online (dark shoutout to Amazon dot com/ca/co.uk). And worst of all, Miranda is an undeserving hay mowee.
1 hr 5 min
We made it to the funnie sex number!!!!!! And obviously for the occasion we HAD to have friend of the show, guest of the show, the wonderful Sara on. The episode is season 5 episode 3, Luck Be an Old Lady. We’re in Atlantic City babybee!!!! The gals head out for a fun casino romp, except Evil Steve almost stops them with his terrible dadness, and Charlotte’s birthday has her feeling like an old maid. Meanwhile, we discuss things that are more important, like Jim Carrey’s filmography and which wrestlers can compete for Alex’s pussy.
1 hr 21 min
Y’all ever heard of Catholics? Anyway, this week on CGMD we’re discussing season 5 episode 2, Unoriginal Sin. While Charlotte is manifesting, the rest of the gals are cynical and grumpy. Samantha is back with Richard (bluh) and giving him hell for his crimes, and Miranda is dealing with Steve’s Catholic bullshit that she hates. Meanwhile, Carrie??? Is getting a book deal???????? Extremely fake but okay.
55 min 57 sec
Hello season 5! It’s a light one this week with really no significance to the overall plot of the show. We watched season 5 episode 1, Anchors Away, and were mostly just disappointed that the girls support the troops. Also, that they think the objectively ugliest uniform (sailor) is hot. BUT we’re also super proud of Samantha in her best moment of the series, and impressed at Miranda’s nipples. Tits ahoy!
59 min 12 sec
Season 4 is over and Brady Brady is finally here! Plus, Big is gone (for now!)! The episode of the week is season 4 episode 18, I Heart NY, and we heart to see it. But on the two hand, we hate Richard and also preps. And horses! A lot of things are the same as always, but we can also look forward to a season 5 where Big lives in California and Joey Friends is picking up women at ground zero. Let’s have a kiki!
1 hr 17 min
Our long anticipated return from holiday is finally here! One of us saw Cats (2019) and loved it, and the other one of us is having a stroke. Listen to find out who is who! This week we watched the penultimate episode of season 4: A ‘Vogue’ Idea. Carrie is struggling with her new job at Vogue, Miranda is struggling with preparing for motherhood, and we’re struggling with every mention of dads and daddies.BONUS: if you’re a patron, the first episode of our Keanucast is live! Check out the patreon to hear us ramble about the timeless and tender My Own Private Idaho!
1 hr 26 min
This week we’re joined by friend of the show Morg to talk about season 4 episode 16, Ring a Ding Ding! This episode is all about money and gifts, and also about deciding who’s less valid between the person who is rich for doing nothing or the person who is poor for spending $40000 on shoes. Meanwhile, Carrie is coping with her breakup, Sam pulls a joker’s dick on Richard, and Mr Big gives Carrie $30.Find Morg on twitter!
1 hr 38 min
Welcome to the Hans Gruber fanclub! Alan Rickman stans only! We get a bit derailed this week trying to talk about season 4 episode 15, Change of a Dress… but it’s fine. Season 4 is coming to an end and so are all our favourite(?) relationships. On the two hand, we kin Miranda and her lack of excitement over learning about her baby’s genitals. Shoutout to James Remar for having a face we like to see!
1 hr 22 min
The gays are at it again this week! But between gay clubs, gay porn, and Stanford constantly appearing out of nowhere as Carrie’s guardian angel, there’s still plenty of room for the Straights to be on their bullshit in season 4 episode 14, All That Glitters. Charlotte and Trey complete the last step of the Dennis System, Samantha has a feeling, and Aidan has an ideal Saturday night.
1 hr 16 min
Gamers………….. the moment we’ve been waiting over 60 episodes for is finally here. Kyle MacLachlan shows us his second funniest prank, and we hate to see it. For the occasion, we brought in Kyle MacLachlan lover and good friend of the show Jess to help dissect season 4 episode 13 (happy homestuck episode!): The Good Fight. Charlotte steals the show this week, but we also get a once-in-a-series visible dick moment that we CANNOT help but hoot and holler over. Meanwhile, Carrie is evil, hates Pete, and wears a hideous shirt.Follow Jess on twitter!
1 hr 36 min
Your favourite Twilight vampires are back and we absolutely hate Trey this week (sorry Kyle). We’re on season 4 episode 12, Just Say Yes, where Carrie has to deal with Aidan loving her despite how much she sucks. Meanwhile Steve finds out Miranda’s pregnant, Matt finds out what Steve looks like, and we have the displeasure of meeting the Italians of Scottish people.
1 hr 8 min
It’s Charlie’s Angels week on CGMD, partly because Lucy Liu is in the episode, but more importantly because we’re joined again by the lovely guest of Summer! We discuss season 4 episode 11, Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda. And folks? It’s possibly the first time Carrie has ever been more valid than Aidan. Miranda is pregnant, Charlotte isn’t, and we’re pleasantly surprised at how well the show handles abortion!Find Summer on twitter!
1 hr 17 min
Balls…………………………………. are the topic of the week, apparently. Which you might be able to guess from the title of season 4 episode 10, The Belles of the Balls. We ponder some deep ball philosphy and also determine that there’s literally zero difference between Carrie Bradshaw and Don Draper. Plus, we geniusly invent some great genitalia-free metaphorical language for everyone to adopt!
1 hr 18 min
We’re back! And amazing friend of the show Su is here again! They joined us this week to plow through season 4 episode 9, Sex and the Country. It’s a good episode for people who love to milk cows and bathe next to their mom, but a bad episode for city girls who hate the country, and also for people who have testicles. Tune in to learn the best country girl way to dispose of your garbage!Find Su on twitter!
1 hr 25 min
CW for parental death in this one (throughout most of the episode)A bit of a heavy one this week with season 4 episode 8, My Motherboard, My Self. Miranda suffers the loss of her mother, and on an equally(?) tragic note, Samantha has lost her nut. On top of that, Carrie’s laptop has died and Aidan has the audacity to buy her a new one!!!!!!!!! Meanwhile, we discuss how much we appreciate the theatrics of wrestling and funerals.
1 hr 41 min
Welcome to the pube episode of City Girls! If you’ve ever wanted ideas for what to shave into your bush, we’ve got ya covered. But we also have other stuff to yell about — this week we’re discussing season 4 episode 7, Time and Punishment. Charlotte quits her job to raise a baby she’s not even pregnant with, Miranda is on the floor, and we’ve absolutely had it with Carrie and Aidan’s horseshit drama.
1 hr 31 min
We’re joined again by podcasting genius val flightcub! They’re here to help us deconstruct the challenging topics of baby talk and eating ass. The episode of the week is season 4 episode 6, Baby Talk is Cheap, and thank god because there’s so much to talk about. Carrie is gen X big brain Logged Off in her quest to get Aidan back, Charlotte is getting rawed, and we condemn daddy doms to the deepest pits of hell. This episode written by Banky!Find Val on twitter!
1 hr 30 min
Aaaaa!! There’s a ghost in our podcast! This week we’re tackling season 4 episode 5, Ghost Town. Steve’s back and mostly tolerable, Aidan is also back, and we’re upset that Sex and the City didn’t to go full on paranormal. It’s FINE I guess. In other news, Samantha is going off her pussy diet, and Stephanie and Alex pretend to know what the X-Files is about.
1 hr 29 min
Brace yourselves… we’re joined again by special guest Sara and we get a LITTLE rowdy. We take another trip to Casa de Lesbo this week in season 4 episode 4, What’s Sex Got to Do With It?, where we learn all about secret body holes. We also get to mull over The Mask, who’s warged into Trey’s wang, and the subtle differences between seppuku and bukkake.Find Sara on twitter!
1 hr 25 min
After a week off we’re back to talk about season 4 episode 3, Defining Moments. The men of the show are entirely on their bullshit, especially Big (who’s never been so insufferable). And Miranda’s war criminal boyfriend is literally shitting! So that’s great. At least Samantha is here to bring us the sapphic energy we want, need, and deserve.
