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.

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!
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!
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!
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 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!!
Welcome to Episode 14, where the neighbors list their top five podcasts of 2016; what happened over at Pantsuit Nation; the new downtown Alamo Drafthouse; and just why Margo is wearing 4 trackers. Happy 2017, y'all! Please God may it be better than 2016!

Welcome to Episode #9, wherein the neighbors get a game plan on how to handle overzealously political family members at Thanksgiving, & discuss new fave podcasts, David Sedaris's show at Town Hall, why it's important to make sure you're recording when interviewing a fitness icon. All this and lots more! Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone!
Episode #8 finds the neighbors trying to come to terms with their post-election, surreal world--one positive way is to reach out and donate to worthy causes, and to drown your sorrows in some good TV. (The BBC's Sherlock's doing it for Erin; Margo can't wait for Kathy Griffin's new tell-all to publish.) Whatever way helps you find the cracks where the light gets in. RIP, Leonard Cohen.
Episode 7 of the BNP finds the neighbors trying to find ways to distract themselves from election-overload. Erin tries laughter, with various shows from this week's NY Comedy Festival. Margo tries a pop culture quiz about movies/TV shows, and what's the most embarrassing song on your Ipod. And a brief discussion of whether LOVE, ACTUALLY is actually any good. Let's all laugh 'cos the world's gonna end soon!
