    Being the Ricardos & Stillwater are peak terrible cinema

    Being the Ricardos & Stillwater are peak terrible cinema

    2021 was a long one, everyone. To wrap up the year, we are proud to present the culmination of all of our efforts. 

    After a special announcement at the top of the show, Brett & Dani devote nearly an hour to the latest Aaron Sorkin opus: Being the Ricardos. Weird performances, multiple framing devices, problematic characters, quippy dialogue -- this movie is everything we hoped it would be, and yet completely terrible at the same time.

    Wrapping up the podcast, Danielle tries to explain the plot to Stillwater, a movie in which a conservative Matt Damon lives in France for a while to save his daughter and....nothing else happens?

    Thank you for supporting Hey Julie all year. We'll see you again sometime in 2022.

    Penultimate #Survivor41, Aaron Sorkin enters the Jeremy Strong discourse, West Side Story, And Just Like That

    Penultimate #Survivor41, Aaron Sorkin enters the Jeremy Strong discourse, West Side Story, And Just Like That

    This is the most wheelhouse episode of Hey Jeff ever recorded onto digital audiotape.

    Brett & Danielle recap the penultimate episode of Survivor 41. How do we feel about the tribe voting out Danny? Is keeping Deshawn in the game a fatal mistake? Is Heather...alive?

    Later, they break down The New Yorker's profile of Jeremy Strong, the reaction to The New Yorker's profile of Jeremy Strong, and Aaron Sorkin's reaction to the reaction to The New Yorker's profile of Jeremy Strong.

    Closing out the episode, Brett talks about the recent adaptation of West Side Story and Dani shares her thoughts on the first episode of And Just Like That.

    Do or Die Tryin' #Survivor41 e11, BB23 cameos, The Beatles & True Story

    Do or Die Tryin' #Survivor41 e11, BB23 cameos, The Beatles & True Story

    Before recapping another excellent & poignant episode of Survivor 41, they share a fun Cameo purchased by a fan featuring none other than BB23's Sarah Beth.

    On the Survivor side, the Do or Die twist was another excellent piece of Survivor production flexing their muscle & the tribal council felt like the culmination of a year of thought provoking and emotional discussions of race and Black culture shining through assorted reality competition shows.

    In the back half of the episode, Brett talks about The Beatles: Get Back and Dani gives her thoughts on Netflix's new series starring Kevin Hart, True Story.

Keep the good times coming

Long time listener first time reviewer. I love this podcast because they don’t take it so seriously and have fun with the game and the oddities associated with it. Big brother has become super predictable so I come for the fun banter, this is a true BB jewel for the causal and hardcore watcher alike.

rough

i think i first listened to this podcast during OTT and i didn’t mind it at all but now i check back in and these two have gotten tough to stomach. danielle seems ok but is legit just 25% controlled laughter and 75% out of control laughter, and brett is as unlikeable a podcast host/ person as i’ve come across. do your soul a favor and skip this one.
