    Basket Case | Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Part One

    Basket Case | Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Part One

    We've covered the Kennedy family in some detail during the show's run, but like any sprawling dynasty, there's always more to explore! This week, Alicia brings us the back story of Robert F. Kennedy Jr., the son of slain Attorney General and presidential candidate, Robert F. Kennedy. Let's just say that Bobby experienced a troubled youth, which was certainly not helped by the high profile murders his family was subjected to, or his family's effectively unlimited money and prestige.

    Bust A Move | Silent Film Titan Buster Keaton

    Bust A Move | Silent Film Titan Buster Keaton

    Choosing a career in the arts is always risky, but it's not like Hollywood legend Buster Keaton had a choice. His parents, dreaming of Vaudeville success, had him on stage when he was still in diapers, and by the time he was five, young Buster was the family's breadwinner. As an artist, Buster would go on to be a pioneering filmmaker and a world-renowned comedian - as well as the ex-husband of one of America's most famous faces.

    Closer to Free | Glenn Close

Alicia has all the details, from her childhood years in a cult, to her liberated experience of being an accomplished actor in her 70s today.

    Going To California | Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page, ca. 1972

    Going To California | Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page, ca. 1972

    Vladimir Lenin famously observed, "There are decades where nothing happens; and there are weeks where decades happen," and it's such a fitting statement for the long-gone era when rock & roll was young. Traveling musicians had long indulged in their share of excess, but when Jimmy Page's Led Zeppelin exploded onto the scene in 1969, they redefined what debauchery could be. At the same time, the first wave of Groupies, typified by Pamela Des Barres, was giving way to the so-called Baby Groupies, a younger cohort. Which is to say, a cohort that was far too young for the relationship Jimmy Page allegedly carried on with a fourteen year old girl. Stacie has the story, in all its trashy, day-glo, Marshall-stack tawdriness.
    Content note: This episode includes fairly graphic descriptions of disturbing behavior.

    Candy | Phylicia Rashad

    Candy | Phylicia Rashad

    Alicia kicks off her exploration of Sitcom Moms with one of the greats of the genre! In the mid-1980s, Phylicia Rashad became America's favorite mom and wife with her portrayal of Clair Huxtable on the smash hit, The Cosby Show. In her real life, however, domesticity was a harder slog, and even included a few years married to one of the Village People!

Love these two!

Love the chemistry between the hosts. It makes us so much more fun to listen to. I feel like I’m just hanging out while they talk. This has been a great find for me.

PURE GOLD

I confess I didn’t know I needed a podcast on trashy divorces or trash candy in my life. But it is everything and more than I could ever dream of. Pure gold!

Paige C.S. ,

Awesome work ladies

Podcast is incredible. I’m a true crime type but I easily enjoyed what this offers - a good story - and the podcast is really not about those details. However, I’ve laughed and cried for people from Picasso on down. Only negative reviews I’ve seen are for their liberal and expressed personal views. One viewer has even called it “bashing” the president who himself has had multiple divorces and business bankruptcies so he’s a great subject..
update: “you call them billionaires, I call them policy failures” was gold thanks
