    Lizzie & Kat Social Distance

    Lizzie & Kat Social Distance

    We’re back for a topical check-in before resuming our regularly-scheduled episodes as we recap the rest of Beverly Hills, 90210 season five! The world has entered into the confusing new reality of a global pandemic, and we’re catching up from our respective homes as we hypothesize about how the original series might have tackled a very special topic such as Coronavirus, and what it would mean for our favorite characters. Then, we run through the latest updates from the 90210 cast members as they’re adjusting to life in quarantine.
    We’re excited to bring you some levity in this strange time, and want to be clear that a bit of tabloid gossip and joking doesn’t detract from the seriousness of this situation. We’re incredibly grateful to our listeners who work at medical facilities, grocery stores, in food delivery or public transit, first responders, and all who are keeping society running at a risky time. We’ll continue to follow all of the recommended best practices for containing the spread of this virus, and urge our listeners to do the same!
    Discussed in this episode:
    Friend-Of-The-Show Mickey Keating’s dispatch from the live premiere of Corey Feldman’s documentary exposé The Rape of Two Coreys Ian Ziering’s #motoquest The latest episode of the With Brian Austin Green podcast, and BAG & Megan Fox’s outing as covered by the Daily Mail Gabrielle Carteris’ statement as President of SAG-AFTRA Jennie Garth’s lovely words on Instagram Jason Priestley accepting the challenge set out by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for famous Canadians to encourage their fans to help #flattenthecurve Shannen Doherty’s serious words as an immunocompromised individual Tori Spelling’s troubles finding enough toilet paper for seven butts, and her defense of her daughter’s costume/character of “McQuisha”

    Lizzie & Kat Celebrate Dads

    Lizzie & Kat Celebrate Dads

    We’re checking in with an update since we announced our brief mid-season hiatus a few weeks back. Kat’s dad passed away, and she has been so touched by everyone’s messages of support and sympathy. Lizzie and Kat take the opportunity to share some memories of Phil’s support of the podcast and related 90210 concerns (mostly Ian Ziering), read his “IMDb bio,” and thank our listeners for the patience until new episodes of the podcast are back. We also bring you some updates from “90210 in the news,” and re-run our interview with one of the series’ most iconic dads, Matthew Laurance!
    In memory of Kat’s dad, her family welcomes donations to the Malala Fund.
    Discussed in this episode are Kat’s reviews of the Best Picture Oscar nominees (addendum), and:

Great pod

If you love 90210 this pod is essential! Also, David Silver = Dream Boat. I guess he’s my fetish 😂

Paraprax ,

exactly what I was looking for

My favourite podcast format is a small group of regular people-turned-comedians chronicling a series of some kind, installment-by-installment, so to find one THIS hilarious and THIS authentic for Beverley Hills 90210 - one of the all-time great shows to riff about and enjoy unironically, ironically, nostalgically, and in every other way shape and form - is what California dreams are made of. Lizzie & Kat have an excellent way with words and tangents in the vein of other great pop-commentary podcasts like WeHateMovies and Enslaved By The Bell, and their personal ties to growing up with the show are super compelling and relatably hilarious. A great pick-me-up!

Great podcast! Poor audio quality

I love these gals but I’ve had to stop listening to a few episodes because of the poor audio quality :(
