2.13 Here's To You Mrs Kinsella

I’ve been listening since day one and this is my favorite episode yet. Such a riveting conversation with smart talented women who have interesting takes on a show that I love. It was awesome to hear Lisa Darden’s insight as an African American woman. The discussion about inclusion in Murphy Brown was so insightful. Keep up the good work!!

A great listen for fans of both eras of Murphy Brown!

Having been a fan of the original Murphy Brown series (and now a fan of the new revival) I can say without hesitation that I have become a big fan of this podcast. I hadn’t watched the show in years but this podcast took me down me down a stroll through memory lane and reminded me of what a terrific and intelligent show Murphy Brown was and is. It’s been a real treat to walk through segments of the first season of the original broadcast and reminisce about the funny antics that would occur in the FYI newsroom. Hosts Lauren Milberger and Jesi Mullins offer fun and insightful commentary and analysis on individual episodes and have even gotten some of the creative talent from the original and current run of the show to sit down for interviews. You can tell Milberger and Mullins have a genuine affection for the show and a real knowledge of its history. If you’re a fan of Murphy Brown in either of its iterations you’ll love this podcast! It’s a great addendum to an already terrific TV show.

It's like a dear friend is back!

I grew up watching Murphy and the crew and didn't quite realize how much I missed them. Lauren and Jesi are really great and reminding me of all the good times and getting me excited for the new episodes. I wasn't a big podcast girl until this came along but now I am hooked. Subscribe and check it out- you won't be disappointed ;-)
