Episode Summary:

This week on the FadCast,we crawl from behind the “Weeds” and into cells of the Litchfield women's penitentiary as we unlock the secret behind why Jenji Kohan is so great. From the 8-season spanning cannabis laced exploration of suburbia "Weeds" to the current Netflix sensation "Orange Is the New Black," we compare and contrast our way to decoding the truth behind Kohan's success.
