    Episode 45: Angels in America

    It's been a while since we've last recorded but as our finale looms, we take a look at the 2003 miniseries 'Angels in America'. We talk about Meryl's many roles in the series from rabbi to ghost mother, how much Al Pacino loves 'A Cry in the Dark', Mary Louise Parker and how this isn't our favourite Emma Thompson role despite her angelic persona. We also talk about some Meryl news involving Mamma Mia 2 and a somewhat 'Silkwood' reunion! Get ready for our finale with 'It's Complicated' next week!

    Episode 44: One True Thing

    As we're winding down, we're tackling another serious role for Meryl with 1998's 'One True Thing'. From the 'timeless mom' look Streep brings, Renee Zellweger reminding us how good of an actress she is, to William Hurt being good (but actually bad.) Tune in next week for Angels in America!

    Episode 43: Mamma Mia!

    Here we go again! This week, we tackle 2008's summer smash 'Mamma Mia!' So much singing and dancing that neither of us is saying SOS. We talk Meryl's singing, Pierce Brosnan wanting to work with 'drama school crushes' and Danita identifying with Julie Walters and being okay with ending up with Stellan Skarsgård.

MERYL FOR PRESIDENT!!!

Don't know who Meryl Streep is? Are you a fan but don't know enough? Then visit this podcast! You will learn about the host's fascinations with the actress and you will also learn a ton of fun facts about one of the best actresses in Hollywood history. They start off with my favorite Meryl film, Death Becomes Her and they work their way through all of her filmography. It's fun, educational, and pays homage to a lady who is so talented. This is the podcast Meryl deserves!!!
