Your Questions Answered (00:15:40)
Email from Listener Jan – Thanks for the fabulous podcast, very entertaining. Since I have only listened for about 6 months, could you please tell how you all met and decided to do a podcast? How you record in different states? Thanks and may you have another 100…
Voicemail from Listener Lisa – She basically congratulates us and asks the same question as Jan, about how we met/started the podcast. Then asks for some recommendations on past shows to catch up with like previous recommendations we’ve made that she liked (Terriers, Better Off Ted and The IT Crowd).
Answered the how we started the podcast question. (00:18:00)
Answered Lisa’s second question about shows to catch up on. (00:22:11)
Email from Listener Carl – Congrats on 200th podcast. Quite an achievement-you don’t look a day over 135.
For 200th episode:
Have you ever done an awards show?
Is there a series that would get a Rae lifetime season pass?
What do you think is the most rewatchable series?
What shows that are on should be done? (talking to you Grey’s Anatomy)
Is there a show you’d like to see a spin-off from?
What reality show could be a scripted drama?
Answered Carl’s questions. (00:28:00)
Email from Listener Selina – If you guys are Vampire Diaries fans I would love to hear about the new fall premiere! I think the transition to college is going well so far and look forward to the new story lines they come up with. Kind of reminding me of Buffy when she made the leap to college and locking Stefan under water is almost exactly what they did to Angel. Buffy is one of the greats though, so I'm not complaining about a little déjà vu.
Answered Selina’s question. (00:49:00)
