Looking forward to some spring, how 'bout you?

It's freezing here in Brooklyn, folks! Cozy up with your favorite neighbors as we break down the week's events. First and foremost, "stable genius?" We can't. Real Housewives of Bev Hills is doing it for us this season. Even Dorit doesn't bother us too much. Rinna continues to be thirsty, but so far this season, we're IN! Margo has a great new podcast rec, and Erin loved "The Queen at 90" on Netflix, and Mark Rylance's latest Broadway play. Margo tries to talk us into watching "Black Fist" on Netflix only to realize she means "Black Mirror." We're probably gonna pass on that one, altho "Black Fist" I would totes see. Stay warm, neighbors!

But it's the holidays, so the neighbors try to brighten the mood with recent movie reviews--THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI and LADYBIRD. One neighbors liked her movie; the other didn't. Guess which is which! We have shout-outs to listeners and a friend of the pod recommendation (Thanks, Josie!). But on an up note, Ally Walker responds to Margo's tweet and Erin's enjoying Judd Apatow's book, SICK IN THE HEAD. Jingle all the way, everyone!
