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.

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!

Now be like Mary & turn the world on with your smile!
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!
