A cussy irreverent love letter to Hallmark movies. A Hallmark romance movie recap podcast by lifelong friends Tamara Cosio and Corinne Eding, launching May 2021. New episodes drop every Tuesday.
Lesbian Nuptials & A Cootchie Cooler: Wedding Every Weekend
In our third Swoon in June installment we watch Wedding Every Weekend, starring Paul Campbell and Kimberley Sustad. This is the second movie we've done with Paul and boy is it swoon-worthy. In this episode we talk about the varied Hallmark wedding fashions, lesbian love, the merits of having a Metallica cover band at your reception and Corinne regales us with the 'cootchie cooler' she had in her younger years. What's a 'cootchie cooler' you ask, well listen in to find out as we attend a Wedding Every Weekend. Thanks to following podcasts for your great interviews that helped with the fun facts for this episode: “She nerds out” podcast interview with Paul Campbell, “Deck the Hallmark” interview with Kimberly Sustad, & the blog QCApproved.com as an invaluable resource for gay Hallmark movies and so much more.
Taking A Shot At Love
This episode features Taking A Shot At Love starring Alexa Pena Vega and Luke McFarlane. It's the 2nd in our Swoon In June series and boy, we scored a goal with this one! Tamara and Corinne swoon over Luke McFarlane, his dreamy gaze, his impeccable eyelashes (does that boy use Latisse?) and his uncanny resemblance to Flynn Rider from the movie Tangled. We also explore hygge life and whether or not it's a fire hazard to sleep with thousands of candles around you in Hallmark Town. We hope you take a shot with us (not in the alcohol way... unless you're into that) and listen to this episode.
It Was Always You
Episode 7 kicks off our Swoon in June Series with the Hallmark movie "It was Always You" starring Erin Krakow and Tyler Hynes. Corinne waxes poetic about her love for Tyler Hynes (or TyTy as she calls him) and shares why he's sooo swoon worthy. We also ponder very important questions like: Can a man look sexy while playing a trombone and is it romantic to propose while watching banana slugs mate? Find out with us as we recap our foirst Swoon in June episode dropping June 1st.
Right In Front Of Me
Join us as we recap "Right In Front of Me. A love story featuring Janel Parrish and Marco Grazzini (Hallmark's first movie with 2 Asian leads) and taking place in beautiful Marin California (but really Canada). We talk about getting 'punked' by empanadas, foliage forward kitchens and give pro tips for spicy food challenges (Hint: Don't do them!). Will Corinne spontaneously burst into song? Will Tamara finally be able to eat solid food? Yes and yes, but there's so much more going on. Listen to find out.
Mix Up In The Mediterranean Part 2
Our second half of Mix Up In The Mediterranean. We resolve the love lives of Josh and Meg. Explore the hunkiness of Callum Blue, who plays Henry. And Tamara has so much to say about Jessica Lowndes' eye shadow. Join us!
Mix Up In The Mediterranean Part 1 of 2
We are sooo excited about this movie that it took us 2 episodes for us to say everything we wanted. Are there slight gay themes in this one? Yes! Do we make it gayer in our recap?! Absolutely!Two brothers: one a small town cook, the other a big city chef have to impersonate each other to compete in a prestigious culinary contest. But their plans are complicated when one brother falls for the female event coordinator. Who thinks he's married... and gay. We have a gay ol' time mixing it up (heh heh heh) with this 'Parent Trap 'style movie.

Entertaining, Binged it all!
Love their irreverent take on the classic hallmark romances. Tamara and Corinne have great banter. Started with episode one and just kept on going. Points for smart retellings and excellent humorous sidebars. You don’t even need to watch the movies (they are that good), though it can be fun if you have seen them.
Honestly, I’m a complete Hallmark newb and. Cannot overstate how helpful Corinne and Tamara are for giving me a hand up. Useful terminology and hilarious!
A delightful treat
I’m biased, having gotten to listen to a preview episode, but One Dry Kiss makes me want to watch Hallmark-style romance movies so I can play along with the charming hosts whose strong friendship radiates with their banter and funny commentary.
