Where to Start
Is Cranberry Sauce Overrated?
Sami is back from Jordana’s wedding and she’s joined by Sean Kilby to share some highlights from the weekend. They start with details about rain on the wedding day, and Sami gives us an update on her embryo freezing process. Next, they preview their Thanksgiving holidays, which leads to a debate about the most overrated Thanksgiving dish and the best dessert at the table. They also offer a retraction from last week’s conversation about Paris Hilton’s wedding (now that we’ve seen Paris and her husband in their new reality show). Finally, at around 38:00 they recap the best episode of this season of Succession, telling us exactly where they think things are going in the next few episodes.
Is ‘All Too Well’ Taylor’s Creative Peak?
It’s only a few hours until Jordana’s wedding arrives, so she and Sami talk about the last minute anticipation (and tell us how you actually get a wedding dress on a plane). Then they react to Britney’s conservatorship coming to an end and talk about what’s next for her now that she’s finally free. They discuss Paris Hilton’s over-the-top wedding this past weekend, including whether or not she used her now-husband as a prop. Next, they talk about Taylor Swift dominating the conversation this week with the re-release of Red, and debate whether or not she’ll ever get married (or already secretly got married). Finally, they discuss Taylor’s creative peak, people coming for Jake Gyllenhaal, and the relatability of ‘All Too Well’.
Is It Sexist To Call Someone A Bridezilla?
With so much to discuss this week, Sami and Jordana dive into a conversation about last-minute wedding worries and the concept of a Bridezilla. This leads to a debate about different standards for male and female executives and the consequences they face, especially in the case of Barstool Sports. Then they play a game of ‘Bridezilla Wrangler’ with Sami serving as Jordana’s advisor for wedding-related drama and stress. They also talk about the exciting news that our own Jared Freid will be on the Tonight Show with (wait for it) Taylor f*cking Swift this evening! Next, they discuss Aaron Rodgers getting COVID and Shailene Woodley lashing out at the media on his behalf. They also react to Paul Rudd being named the sexist man alive. Finally, at 45:00 they finish things out with a recap of this week’s Succession episode and a reaction to the Jen Shah arrest footage.
