    Bye Bye Birdie (1963) with Olivia Howell and Genevieve Dreizen

    Bye Bye Birdie (1963) with Olivia Howell and Genevieve Dreizen

    We've got a lot of living to do as we talk "Bye Bye Birdie", the 1963 film adaptation of the hit Broadway musical. Our guests are real life sisters Genevieve Dreizen and Olivia Howell, co-founders of Fresh Starts Registry, a registry for people who are making big changes in their lives to get the things that they need to start again. You might recognize Olivia from our recent Hallmark Christmas Movie episode! This was a sister-riffic episode, and we reminisced about a movie that all 4 of us were obsessed with, the eternal hotness of Ann-Margaret, and how everyone SHOULD love Dick Van Dyke. Get on your dancing shoes and join us!
    In 2020, after her divorce, Olivia wanted to create a system of support for the moments in life when we start over. Alongside her sister, Jenny Dreizen, Olivia founded Fresh Starts Registry, and since then, it has been named the “the first divorce registry of its kind” by Forbes. It has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, New York Magazine, Forbes, The Cut, The New York Post, and more. 
    Fresh Starts Registry is the first registry and online platform for everything a person needs to begin their life again after a major life change, such as divorce, job changes, moving, or coming out. They provide a free registry builder and bundles of products based on rooms of the house and budget to eliminate the overwhelm of creating a registry for restarting their life. The platform features 100+ vetted Experts in all categories to support people in all processes of their life changes. It is always free to build a registry and access the experts. Fresh Starts aims to eliminate the overwhelming feeling of starting your life over again with all the home items and Experts you need to empower you on your journey forward.

    Finely Aged Cheese Rewind Episode: Clowns and Their History and Value with Producer Sam!!

    Finely Aged Cheese Rewind Episode: Clowns and Their History and Value with Producer Sam!!

    Get out your rainbow wig and travel back to April 2024 for this was fantastic conversation with Producer Sam!! Sam Lewis, who is an amazing artist, photographer, culture commentator, and of course, producer of Fine Beats and Cheeses (and kind of our brother-in-law, as he is married to our longtime bestie who we've known since birth). Today, we talk about clowns, as a concept, and their history. Leslie is actually afraid of clowns and doesn't get them, and Sam gives us his know-how of clowns and such, and their cultural significance. We learned a lot, and we loved this talk. Also, Lynne talks about her questionable encounter with a burger joint clown mascot.
    Sam Lewis is an Austin, TX-based artist and photographer who's visual project, "The Fool's World", features neo-Victorian clowns as a commentary on current culture. You can find him at http://thefoolsworld.com/

    Finely Aged Cheese Rewind: The Resident with Leslie and Lynne PLUS a Bonus Twin Argument

    Finely Aged Cheese Rewind: The Resident with Leslie and Lynne PLUS a Bonus Twin Argument

    Walk with us back to March 2023, when we were our own guests in discussing our beloved show, "The Resident" on Fox, which then got cancelled. Good talk, and then the two of us argue at one moment, and Producer Sam made us keep it because he said we modeled good conflict resolution. And Lynne clears her throat a lot because we recorded this at like 7 AM! Enjoy! It's a fun one.

Fine Beat

Leslie and Lynne are funny, not cheesy at all. They are very knowledgeable about the entertainment industry past and present. Their guests are equally knowledgeable. You feel like you are sitting down drinking wine and cheese with a few of your friends for an hour or so. If you never watched the show they are talking about, you feel like you have by the end of the podcast. Yes, they give spoilers, but their love of the shows, makes you want to go check them out yourself. Tune in and check out this podcast and I guarantee you will make it your favorite!
