    On this celebratory episode, Dana and Vincent celebrate Vincent's transition to the big 4-0!! Vincent is gifted a new electronic skin care mask, Dana finds joy in watching people cook BBQ on Netflix and they both lament over the nuanced language of frustrated work from home emails.
    There's also deep dive into the latest in pandemic pop culture realness including the end of Quibi, an unfortunate Zoom moment for CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin, thoughts on the new season of Real Housewives of Orange County and this week's "Yeah or Meh" moment with trailers for Ryan Murphy's "Prom" and "Hillbilly Elegy".

    Somewhere Over The Rainbow Podcast - Episode 80- Christmas is Cancelled

    Things get political on this episode as the 2020 U.S. election cycle reaches a fever pitch (VOTE EVERYONE!). A socially distant mini vacay to Palm Springs, the story of a real life private dancer and more Korean dramas help to provide some respite from the craziness (at least for Dana and Vincent). 
    There's also RIP moments for Eddie Van Halen, a cranberry juice drinking skateboarder, a second chance viewing of "Ratched" and "Yeah or Meh" featuring a West Wing special and a reboot of "The Witches".

My New Friends (In My Head)

I fell in love with this podcast after my very first listen. Their chemistry is perfect and the conversations are hilariously fun. So glad that I found this podcast.

I'm for certain I found this show via PodcastsInColor.com (shoutout to Berry 😘). I was burnt out with my podcast list as it was, and I remember marathoning the whole series in about 2 days, so I instantly subscribed.

I like that the show's bi-weekly (or tries to be), the co-hosts are friends who seem to be settled in their day jobs. Also, I like that the setup sounds (I'm assuming) that they are recording into a MacBook, I know Dana's mentioned about editing the show with one. The subjects is general pop culture re-caps offered in bites instead of tangents.

The show's not perfect by any means, and I'm seeing that Dana and Vincent are working to be more social with promoting online. So, I hope to see more growth, and will keep listening.

5 air kisses for the dish between these pop culture-loving besties!

The Hollywood Reporter’s Awards Chatter meets 2 Dope Queens in this fun podcast. Vincent’s an endearing Sonny Bono soundalike who loves the ’80s and pop culture. His wheelhouse has pedestals for Madonna, Stevie Nicks, Dolly Parton and Ricky Martin. Dana is his Wonder Woman-loving bestie who has Hollywood gossip at the ready, like, which recently departed media tycoon paid $75K to be buried next to Marilyn Monroe. And don’t even get her fabulously opinionated self started on which celeb needs to do what: “Megyn Kelly needs to go to the Sally Jessy Raphael School of Audience Interaction!” Ha! If pop culture is your Thing, come love on this to get your show biz fix.
