Very Special, indeed!

Patrick and Kat are great, and I feel like I'm listening to my own friends! They talk about so many of my favorite shows (and sometimes movies), and it's fun to reminisce with them. Plus they often cover shows I'm not as familiar with, but really should be. Thanks for providing fuel for my nostalgic binge watches!

Bonus points for the occasional Big Brother mention!!

FEUD + BEYOND

I found this podcast through the Feud: Bette and Joan recaps which serve as these wonderful little show notes that tie in these odd but fitting pop cultural references. Likening Joan Crawford to a mastermind Big Brother contestant? Absurdly genius! I'm now cherry picking through their back catalog and the segment I love the most is the TV Listings for a particular night in television history.

I hope they stick with the Getting Catty segments after Feud ends. They keep teasing their love for the Hedda Hopper and Louella Parsons beef. There's oodles of books and documentaries that cover this subject and I'd love to hear their take on it. Or even go behind the scenes of classic television, like I Love Lucy's William Frawley and Vivan Vance's cattiness. It could be like You Must Remember This but unhinged, uncut, and raw.

DIAMOND STAR

This is Danielle from Twitter and I just caught up on the last months worth of episodes and did a spit take when I heard there was ANOTHER podcast calling themselves A Very Special Podcast... and it's run by five men. The patriarchy must be destroyed or at the very least change their name. I guess that's 2017, baby... Is this Christmas ornament worthy?

P.S. - I am still waiting for you two to do a Buffy episode
