Episode notes

Everybody’s Talking About Jamie

Everybody’s Talking About Jamie! And so are we! This week we discuss this fabulous, coming-of-age, drag musical. And who better to have on the show than the man who wrote the literal damn book on drag, Frank DeCaro. We also submit a new entrant into the ‘Hall of Excellence’ for ‘Cinema’s Most Important Wig.’ And, as always, we’ve got ‘Staff Picks.’

In news, Daniel Craig has some thoughts on the future of James Bond and the original ‘Star Wars’ editor thinks the new films “suck.”
