This episode, Guy and Margaret are joined by two very special guests to talk about Netflix’s most expensive series The Crown. They talk about Queen Elizabeth II, Princess Margaret, whether Prince Philip is hot or not, and who has played the best Elizabeth on screen. Have smart phones ruined bathroom meditation? Did the Gilmore Girls reboot live up to expectations? And is Julio Torres leading the way in writing smart comedy about queer experience?(***hint, the answer is a resounding yes***). And as always, the panel will delight you with their latest jams and what they are all about.
That’s My Jam:
Margaret Wappler – Playing Elevator
Guy Branum – Am I The Same Girl
Chris Schleicher – Camelot Finale
Karen Tongson – All Time Low
Each week we’ll add everyone’s jams to this handy Spotify playlist.
