Batali, Smiley, and Spurlock, Oh my! Yes, good neighbors, even more pervs for our advent calendar of awfulness. But the Neighbors try to focus on more festive fare, like Emily Heller's Hallmark holiday Movie Drinking Game; Margo talks of FINAL VISION and THE LAST JEDI (no spoilers!); Erin goes details the Downton Abbey Exhibit here in NYC; and both fondly reminiscence about the sitcom, It's A Living. Ho, ho, ho, everyone! Deck them halls!
Did you think the list of creepy pervs was done? Ah, neighbors, if only! This week, we jump right in with talk of Al Franken's resignation, John Hockenberry, Leonard Lopate, Bryan Singer, Lorin Stein, and sadly, a few others. 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!

Erin keeps talking about 90 Day Fiancee & the Rolling Stone doc on HBO; both discuss Lena Dunham, Al Franken; and how a new creep is brought to light every day. Thanks for stopping by!
Place your bets, Neighbors! Who will be the next celeb unmasked as a private perv? The neighbors breakdown Louis C.K's 'apology,' Richard Dreyfus, Steven Segal, but prefer to focus on the bright spot of the week--the election! Margo also recommends a couple of new podcasts, and Erin gushes about Netflix's ALIAS GRACE and some recent live shows as part of the NY Comedy Festival. For every woman who said "me too," too.
Hey there, Neighbors! Are you coming out of your candy corn-induced coma like us? Hope so 'cos there's so much to discuss!

Also, find out why Bethenny Frankel needs to film herself crying. Margo has a few more podcast recommendations (there's one devoted to Hallmark Movies, y'all!) and Erin finishes STRANGER THINGS and talks 90 Day Fiancee Finale and both neighbors talk Real Housewives of OC ("You're not having a heart attack, Vicki!"); Dallas; & NJ.

This week, the neighbors have tons of podcast recommendations, discuss Netflix's Mindhunter, the Spielberg doc on HBO, reminisce about classic TV movies of the '80s, Erin talks of her trip to Seattle & the Emerald City Writers Conference, and Margo bids a fond farewell to the Tragically Hip's Gord Downie. Here's to a fabulous week!!
Come on in, Neighbors! And we thought last week was a bummer?! This week, we bid adieu to Tom Petty, the tragedy in Vegas, Harvey Weinstein, Cam Newton, more institutionalized sexism, Real Housewives of Dallas, and recommend some new podcasts for you. We promise it's not all doom & gloom!
Hey Neighbors! We have lots of great recs for you this week; recommendations for your eyes & ears, and not everything we talk about this week is a total bummer! Erin attends a media panel that bums her out; Margo talks VH1 shows; both talk of Netflix's GERALD'S GAME & ICE CASTLE trivia. (Bet you never thought you'd see those two titles in the same sentence!) We also talk of Gaga-Lady Gaga that is, and her Netflix doc, FIVE FOOT TWO, and get ready for Margo's dramatic reading from a memoir by some Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders (I'm sure Terry Gross did a Fresh Air on the subject.) Have a wonderful week, neighbors!

And this week, Erin & Margo break down the CMT reality show, Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders Making the Team; Netflix's Jerry Before Seinfeld; & Margo seconds Erin's enthusiasm for American Vandal.

Halloooo, Neighbors! We are back from our respective vacations with pop culture talk to spare! Margo went to Skywalker Ranch! And got a behind-the-scenes tour! Erin went to the beach and ate funnel cake! Each has recommendations to spare--some good, some not great. Margo saw the IT remake twice and gives her detailed review and has some podcast recs; Erin recommends a comedy special on Netflix and a true-crime book that is harrowing as hell. From the ridiculous to the sublime, the neighbors discuss it all this week.
Hey there, Neighbors! How's your week going? In this episode, the neighbors discuss Real Housewives (Auckland's where it's at, peeps!); ashes and what to do with them; the indie flick, PATTICAKES; and Erin & Margo review this week in toxic masculinity in a segment entitled, "This Week in Misogyny!" Enjoy this neighborly morsel because we're off on vacation until the 2nd week in September! Bon Vacances!
Hallo there, Neighbors! How are you keeping in this heat & humidity? We are taking comfort in pop culture, such as the Real Housewives of Dallas and Auckland (well, Erin's trying to convince Margo they're both worth a watch); Real Housewives of NY reunion Part I was a snore. Margo takes issue with sheet-caking & what it means to be a "1-take Osmond"; and Erin recommends the nonfiction book, "What Made Maddy Run?" by Kate Fagan. A sure way to beat the summer heat--hunker down in the AC and listen to your Best Neighbors!
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!

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!
