This week, Guy Branum, Margaret Wappler and Andrew Ti are joined by British actor and comedian Humphrey Ker. The gang takes a look at the biggest transatlantic pairing of the year: The Royal Wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Humphrey is all about Eurovision, the global music competition that showcases some of the best singing–and host banter–in the world. Margaret is all about the podcast Cocaine and Rhinestones, which tells the history of country music, warts and all. Guy is all about The Party, a movie he was certain he would hate, but it flipped his expectations in the best possible way. Andrew is all about the cancellation and swift revival of Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
The panel will discuss the upcoming Royal Wedding, why this sort of extravaganza captures the attention of a global audience and why it was worth a Lifetime TV movie.
That’s My Jam:
Humphrey Ker – Françoise Hardy – Comment Te Dire Adieu?.
Andrew Ti – The Fitness – Day Job
Margaret Wappler – Liz Phair – Fuck and Run.
Guy Branum Mohammed Assaf – Dommi Falastini.
Each week we’ll add everyone’s jams to our Spotify playlists.
