This week, Guy and the gang discuss The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story. How amazing is Penelope Cruz’ performance? How “true” is this true crime story and does it matter? Plus, Guy is getting into faith-based comedy, Wynter is watching even more stand up comedy, Margaret has some thoughts on The Chi, and Karen discusses The Hollywood Reporter’s feature on Ellen Pompeo.
With Guy Branum, Wynter Mitchell, Karen Tongson and Margaret Wappler.
That’s My Jam:
Margaret Wappler – The Mountain Goats – Wear Black
Karen Tongson – Chuck Mangione – Feels So Good
Wynter Mitchell – Gary Numan – M.E.
Guy Branum – Bow Wow Wow – I Want Candy
Each week we’ll add everyone’s jams to this handy Spotify playlist.
