Madeline Zima (Twin Peaks), Helen Hong (Inside Llewyn Davis), and Rob Belushi (How I Met Your Mother) star in this podcast adaptation of Emily Schultz’s satirical, sci-fi horror novel, The Blondes. Set two years after SHV has infected blonde women with a rabies-like illness, a fictional podcast examines how the "Blond Fury" has changed our culture: from fashionable new fever bracelets, to empowerment pop songs for the infected, to an entirely new understanding of women, gender, and beauty.
