    In part 2 of our fascinating discussion on Jews and pop culture with journalist, writer, and co-host of the Bagel Report (@tbrthepod) @estherkustanowitz, we discuss “what makes a good representation of Jewishness?” and play “Cast... Away,” where this time we recast certain Jewish TV and film characters with actual Jewish actors. Link bio.

    FNM Busters: Afterlife: Secret of the Ooze

    FNM Busters: Afterlife: Secret of the Ooze

    The siblings get deep into the ectoplasm reviewing Ghostbusters: Afterlife, including a Buy / Rent / Meh rating of every major character. Some big shoutouts this week to Leah Jones - host of Finding Favorites and Candy Chat Chicago. And a big thank you to cosplayer and writer extraordinaire, Michelle Reed, for recommending Love and Monsters (Hulu). And finally, Lily would like to thank Shai for making her watch AEW (not A&W) so she could see Luke Perry's son, "Jungle Boy" Jack Perry in action!

    Best Cold Open Ever / Don’t Look Up

    Best Cold Open Ever / Don’t Look Up

    Look, this episode has a super fun review of Netflix's Don't Look Up. But really, this one is all about the cold open - our fav ever. Here's to an amazing 2022, filled with siblings cursing at each other and fictitious apocalypses.

    Matrix: Resurrections AKA Sense8 Season 3

    Matrix: Resurrections AKA Sense8 Season 3

    To close out 2021, we try to try to make sense of the Matrix and whether or not we’d trust an evil Neil Patrick Harris as our therapist. Also, there were a shocking amount of Sense8 cameos in this movie!

TheCAdams ,

I’m hooked!

This podcast is a great listen. Equal parts nostalgia, fun banter, and good entertainment recommendations. Their conversations are really similar to ones I often have with my own friends and family, and it’s clear they have a ton of fun making it. Highly recommend!

Kandice Martellaro ,

Love it!!!

This pod has two things! The sense of siblings watching a movie and talking about it, which feels like listening in on a family movie night and interviews with the people involved with the movies and shows grey discuss! They really do their research and know their information, inside and out!

Clever and innovative

Clever, innovative, and very relevant to entertainment and media issues of the day. The unique aspect of three siblings sharing their history together growing up along with their viewpoints weaves in a human element not otherwise found in the podcast world.
