Welcome, Neighbors! We have consumed a fair amount of pop culture this week so let's not waste any more time and get to the main course. Margo's sister got married! She tells us the deets of her San Fran wedding; good times with family, and the several movies she watched on the plane. Oh, and she had a celeb sighting on her flight back to NYC! Erin finally saw LION; finished GLOW; finally listened to MOGUL; and watched TO THE BONE (Way to go, Keanu!) on Netflix. And both neighbors agree that the Real Housewives of NYC finale went out with a whimper instead of a bang. Enjoy and here's to the upcoming week!
Have you heard the news? Where were you when you heard Countess Luann and Tommy's Cookies were no more? It seems like Countess Luann from Real Housewives of New York City and her husband of 8 months, Tom Gristedes, are filing for divorce. If those crazy kids in love can't make it, what hope do the rest of us have? But as saddened and heavy-hearted we may be, we must soldier on. They'd want us to. So, in that spirit, Erin talks about the Rhett Miller show at City Winery (with special guest, Dave Hill!); Margo explains why there's no such thing as "off the record," (Farewell to you, too, Mooch! Good riddance!) and how just how many people in show business are actually bat-sh*t crazy (spoiler alert---A LOT!!).
Welcome one and all to our latest episode, where we discuss RH of New York, Auckland, The "Mooch," narcissists, Tim Burton & Miss Peregrine, with a couple of documentary & podcast recs. Enjoy the dog days of summer, neighbors!
Oh, welcome, neighbors! You came on a good day--wait 'til you hear what the neighbors are talking about this week! Got a couple of music doc recommendations; 2 podcast recs; Erin's review of Dunkirk; but most importantly, they break down Countess Luann's fall in Mexico (it happened TWICE!). But also, we are treated to a dramatic poetry reading by Margo, as she reads the work of one Suzanne Somers, and if you aren't crying by then, Erin follows with a one-two punch of reading fro Marlon Brando's memoir. Can you take this much culture? Enjoy, neighbors!
Hey there, Neighbors, how are the dog-days of summer treating you? Our Best Neighbors are beating the heat with tons of great pop culture, TV & live shows. Margo recommends HBO's The Defiant Ones, mostly because of Jimmy Iovine's bad-assery; Erin doubles-up on live shows, with Reductress Live at the UCB/NY & Bitch Sesh Live in fabulous Philly. Margo takes the leap into Broadchurch (finally!), with rave reviews so far; Rooney Mara eats pie and Erin is aghast; Marg has some exciting Dr. Who News (Who Jackie?) and Erin needs clarity on Beyonce's twins' names---anyone? Is it Sir Carter or Sir Sir Carter? Asking for a friend.....Stay cool, neighbors!
Hi ya, Neighbors! What's up with you guys? Post-Fourth of July, the neighbors are plowing through series like GLOW and BLACK SAILS; & Margo talks Lena Dunham and the Lamby controversy; Erin tries to break down Donal Logue's missing daughter saga; we have a new podcast recommendation and we want to hear what you're listening to/reading/watching & loving. Also, how the neighbors will NEVER get on a tiny private plane, especially one piloted by Capt. Snorty McCokehead-guy. Listen to our 40th episode and this will all make sense!
Best Neighbors Podcast Ep 39
"They Call Me Baby Driver!"
Welcome & Happy 4th, Neighbors! What's on your agenda for the week? In this episode Margo reveals the secrets of Greenwood Cemetery, and Erin is all about the three Bs--BABY DRIVER; BLACK SAILS; & BROADCHURCH--loved, loving, loving all three.
There's also talk of the most American anthem that can be lovd unironically, some favorite concert memories, including a call-out at a Neil Diamond show, and those great story-songs of the 1970s. (Yes, we're 100 years old!) So go eat some potato salad, have a hot dog, & careful of those fireworks!
Hey there, Neighbors! This week has been jam-packed with things for our eyes & ears, and even mouths! Erin finally saw WONDER WOMAN and LOVED it; Margo was a guest on a Facebook Live show as well as a Fancy Food Exhibition (more about that next week!). We also break down the FARGO finale. Until (hopefully) next time, Mr. Wrench! And we dip in to the new Netflix show, GLOW; and the neighbors share their lists of the Top 25 Movies of the Century (so far). All this, and a story about a rabid raccoon baby--what more could you ask for?
Hello & welcome, one and all to our latest episode where the neighbors discuss Fargo; The Handmaid's Tale; how 21 Jump Street, the show, might not hold up; how Margo is disappointed in the Van Halen book, as well as in Van Halen's behavior; two fun Netflix docs to check out; some Facebook live events coming up; and painful dental surgery, ya jealous? Enjoy and have a lovely week, Neighbors!
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!
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!
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!
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!
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!
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!
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!
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!
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!
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!
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!!
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!
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.
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!
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!
