    Celebrity Home Lockdown Edition

    This week we examine the bookcase backgrounds of every celebrity Zoom appearance, since they are all filming in front of bookcases instead of showing off their celebrity quarantine pads. Then we talk the death of MTV Cribs and celebrity homes as conspicuous consumption, and the rise of the Architectural Digest home tour as low-key celebrity real estate video. Lastly, we discuss some of our favorite celebrity homes and castles, and the gossip stories that surround them.

    But Are You Quibi Bored?

    But Are You Quibi Bored?

    As we enter the fourth week of lockdown, one question is on our minds: you're bored, but are you bored enough for Quibi? This week marks the debut of the much-touted Quibi streaming platform, developed for short-form entertainment. After discussing the latest in coronavirus updates, including Disney's optimistic reset for their 2020 slate, we break down Quibi's debut shows, and ponder whether or not anyone is bored enough to watch any of it.

    Tiger Kinging

    Tiger Kinging

    The self-quarantine continues and this week we're talking Tiger King, the latest Netflix true crime phenomenon. We also discuss Netflix's true crime domination and the ongoing and everlasting interest in true crime that we as a society have. The interest is not new but the lack of shame in that interest is, so join us as we try to understand the human impulse to consume true crime and how that intersects with increasingly exploitative narratives.

May 25 episode

Hey Ladies, like Kayleigh, I miss going to the movie Theater. I would go at least once a week. I would do the AMC Dine In Experience. I would either attend first showtime on Sunday or the 3:50/4:00 showtime on a week day. I had a routine where I always arrived in time to order my food, clean my seat and food tray (yes, I was doing this before the quarantine). I like going by myself so I order my tickets online and I never wanted anyone sitting next to me. LOL! My theater is great, it’s clean, the audience isn’t talking at the screen, phone ringing etc. and the sound system is great.

COVID-19 Episode Ideas

Since almost everyone is in quarantine, why not work on some of the topics you said you would do one day [examples: RDJ’s career, talent gone to soon and where they’d be today (ie River Phoenix, Heath Ledger, Amy Winehouse], BRF (I just really like Meghan), why is Justin Timberlake still famous? JC Chasez deserves better. Britney Spears’ career/celebrity...]

Beautiful Gossip

If, Kayleigh(???) can say “Bee-U-it-ful gossip!!” 20 thousand times I’d listen. They are both pretty amazing at their pod and thanks for giving me a new pod to listen to.
