The neighbors get right in to it in this morning episode, where Margo recommends the new Grateful Dead doc on Amazon & Mystic Aquarium; Erin talks a little about the new season of Orange is the New Black; a bullying/text case from Massachusetts; Margo talks about a new Van Halen biography, and both decide the Dutch are the nicest people to kid, they can take it!  Go out there and have great week, neighbors!

Good Morning, Neighbors! This week, we recorded in the morning to switch things up. This week, we get political-adjacent, talking about Kathy Griffin, Bill Maher, and a little Bill Cosby. Margo saw WONDER WOMAN and LOVED it! A rave review --we all need to go see it. (support strong women at the Box office!) We also talk a little FARGO, a little Real Housewives of NYC (spoiler alert: they're all monsters!) and the Sarah Silverman Netflix comedy special, "A Speck of Dust" (funny but not for the easily offended), & Erin has a couple of book recommendations.  Have a wonderful week, everyone! 

May 27, 2017

Hey there, Neighbors! This week, we settle in on the couch to talk about Jordan Peele's GET OUT, Netflix's The Keepers, Margo dares to disagree with Erin on MOMMY DEAD & DEAREST, the HBO doc, this week's Fargo (features spoilers), Young Frankenstein; and a bunch of new podcast recommendations for your Memorial Day Weekend. Thank you for your service!

May 21, 2017

Hallo, Neighbors! You're in for a real treat with this new episode. Neighbors Erin & Margo welcome their first guest, published author, world traveler, and all-around wonderful gal, Shannon McKenna Schmidt! We talk about her books, the newly-revised book of literary travel, NOVEL DESTINATIONS, and her follow-up, WRITERS BETWEEN THE COVERS, to get the low-down on great literary-inspired trips and what  it's like to travel full-time. The Neighbors also breakdown their top-media picks for the week, including podcast recs like Twisted Philly (Margo's going to be on that one!); Audible's Bedtime Stories for Cynics, and much, much more.  Thanks for stopping by! 

May 13, 2017

Hey there, Neighbors, this week we touch on all things media-related---Margo meets with a producer of the popular podcast, CRIMETOWN, and Erin attends a preview screening of HBO's THE WIZARD OF LIES at the 92nd St. Y; both neighbors talk about  social media and its affect on popular culture, esp. lifestyle brands like Goop. There's a deep-dive into F/X's FARGO and its many Easter eggs from the Coen Bros. universe; Busy Phillips' Instagram honesty, and think about Bucket List. What are two items from your own Bucket List? Let us know at @bestneighborspodcast on Twitter, Instagram, & Facebook, and at www.bestneighborspodcast.com .  We wanna know! 

Here's to a great week!

May 12, 2017

Welcome, Neighbors! It's Episode 31 and our 'Mystery Episode!' Ohhhhhhh---spoooooky! Well, it's only a mystery to me, because I can't remember what we talked about in this one! I bet it had some Real Housewives BS, some Handmaid's Tale mishugas (sp?); I think Margo was on another podcast and her mom was in China, ehhhhhh, I'm sure it's scintillating and amazing listening, so trust us & give us a listen! 

Apr 30, 2017

Hey there, Neighbors! Welcome to our 30th episode--who said it wouldn't last? This week, your best neighbors discuss FEUD's heart-wrenching finale; do dramatic readings from both Joan Crawford and Bette Davis; break down Real Housewives of NYC and what's wrong with them; & Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale. Have a great week, everyone! 

Apr 24, 2017

Hey there, listeners! Hope you're all well and psyched to hear about Part II of the Real Housewives of Bev Hills reunion, and what a garbage person Kim R. is; the much-anticipated finale of F/X's FEUD; Margo's supermodel meet-up; and Erin attends her niece's fairytale wedding (a drone was involved!). Oh, and FARGO!! Watch out for falling air conditioners and have a great week, y'all! 

Apr 16, 2017

This week, the neighbors discuss the great and not-so-great TV offerings, among the top are FEUD, GIRLS, and the anticipation for which they are waiting for FARGO. But some of the recent comedy specials? Wha-whaaaaa. Not-so-great. Also, there's a deep-dive into the recent documentary-series on Casey Anthony, which is fascinating and horrible at the same time. Also, we have a couple of great new podcast recommendations. Yay that it's finally spring! 

Apr 11, 2017

Well, this week started off on a crap note, with Margo being felled by a stomach bug. But the good thing about being laid up is all the House Hunters International one can watch. Margo also tells Erin the harrowing tale of one United passenger who channeled Jennifer Holiday and said,"And I"m Telling you, I'm Not Going"--for real. Erin meanwhile has been rotting her brain with Real Housewives--there are 4 cities in play, people! Thank God Southern Charm is starting up again. Also, a few Netflix recommendations and a book suggestion to add to your week. Have a great one, everybody!

Apr 3, 2017

Welcome one and all to this week's episode of BNP, wherein the neighbors discuss Dave Chappelle's Netflix special; The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel; Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Diamond.& Rose party; the S-Town podcast; the feature film, Jackie and how it relates to Roseanne Barr; memories of '80s/'90s Philly;  what it's like to Rent The Runway.  Spring forth and enjoy the week! 

Mar 26, 2017

Sorry for the week-long lag between eps, guys. Erin was out of town on business and then got a cold & Margo had a client in town taking her to the ends of Brooklyn, but we're back with this TV-heavy episode. It's TV & travel this time out. We breakdown the latest Real Housewives of Bev Hills, with that crazy fight on the junk boat and whether you're Team Erika Jayne or Team Dorit; also Feud: Bette and Joan and how much we're loving it. Special shout-outs to new listeners across the pond (thanks, guys!) and what's hot on the theater scene of London. Margo talks travel trends, the Freedom Tower, and channels Nelson Muntz in response to Trump's care act getting shot down. But of all these important topics, I think we can all agree on one---the fact that Lisa Rinna is bonkers. Enjoy!!

Mar 11, 2017

Welcome, Neighbors, to Episode 24 of BNP! This time out, Erin thanks God for Mike Birbiglia's Netflix comedy special, Thank God For Jokes; Margo does backflips over meeting MaryLou Retton and explains why she hates man-splaining; and both agree Hucksley is a stupid name and Eden wore a schmatta on this week's Real Housewives of Bev Hills; Erin gives shouts out to Southern Charm and her amazing super. Both neighbors are loving F/X's FEUD so far.  So put your feet up, fix a drink and listen to them sneeze their way to an allergy-filled episode! 

Mar 6, 2017

Welcome one and all to the 23rd episode of BNP, where the neighbors discuss everything BUT the Oscars (everyone else is doing that--seems kinda played out); including topics like the irrefutable charm of Marlon Brando, as exhibited in that Showtime doc; what Richard Simmons might look like now; Jake Gyllenhaal on B'way; and Kim Richards's cold, cold heart. 

Feb 18, 2017

This week the neighbors discuss Missing Richard Simmons; The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills down Mexico Way; two great book recommendations, and how no one would ever know they were English Lit/Communications majors thanks to their mispronunciation of certain words. It's 64 degrees in Brooklyn---enjoy it--who knows how many more we'll have, thanks, Climate change! 

Feb 13, 2017

Baby, it's cold outside! The neighbors had a snow day this week (preceeded by a 63 degree day) & discuss their latest TV binges; Howard Stern; the F/X shows, Legion & Baskets; & whether Rosie O'Donnell would make a good Steve Bannon. Stay warm, neighbors! 

Feb 5, 2017

This week's episode has the neighbors discussing Red Oaks-induced nostalgia; the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills & their fondness for a "Great Gatsby" party & how Eden is just wierd; Facebook etiquette; the Slenderman & the film, Christine (not the car one); & why you never mess with Miss Ross's mic. Have  great week, neighbors! 

Jan 30, 2017

This week the neighbors give major props to Mary Tyler Moore, & discuss whether they're a Mary or a Rhoda; the contribution of 1997 to cinema history; just how bad is My Best Friend's Wedding; Carrie Fisher's audiobook of The Princess Diarist; how Kyle is not annoying either of them on Real HW of Bev Hills; & how if you're a Nazi, you should expect a punch in the face. Now be like Mary & turn the world on with your smile!

Jan 23, 2017

This week, the neighbors talk about the Women's Marches all over the country & world, with Margo's first-person account of the March on Washington this past Saturday. If you don't like talk of personal freedom, peaceful protests, and a sea of pink, this might not be the episode for you. Put that in your p*ssy Hat & smoke it! 

Jan 15, 2017

How's your January going? In this episode, the neighbors discuss the many ways they are distracting their addled brains from the current climate-political & otherwise. Margo's doing a deep-dive into the One Day at a Time reboot, with much joy; as Erin is reveling in the new Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events with uber-mensch Neil Patrick Harris; turkey baster warnings; Also mad props for NY Rep. Yvette Clark Parade's End. 

Jan 9, 2017

Welcome to episode 16, where the neighbors talk about the Carrie Fisher/Debbie Reynolds doc; the Boss's WTF; which Grisham novel made the best movie; millions of women who plan to march; historical hucksters; and just what the hell is O/A? 

Enjoy, dear friends, family, & people who downloaded this by accident! 

Jan 2, 2017

Happy New Year, Everyone!  Today the neighbors recall their favorite TV shows of 2016- OJ was having a moment------again, and Stranger Things are afoot. Margo gets into it with some peeps over Ol Blue Eyes's letter to George Michael, and bid a fond farewell to Carrie Fisher & Debbie Reynolds; but make time to discuss Mariah's midnight meltdown. Happy 2017 to us!!
