Live, from New York (kinda)! While in NYC, Kat was joined by East Coast co-host Pallavi Yetur and guest Jarod Hector to discuss season five, episode 17 of Beverly Hills, 90210, “Sweating It Out.” Between manual labor and a spiritual sweat session on an Indian reservation, and a full weekend seminar with The New Evolution, this episode has it all. Discussed in this show: Pallavi’s article about Brendan Fraser and The Mummy, the podcast “This Land,” and tragedy at James Arthur Ray’s sweat lodge retreat. Listen to Pallavi and Jarod’s previous episodes of The Blaze!
It’s so exciting for us to finally be joined by Beth and Amy, the sisters behind longtime supporter of the podcast, Greenwich Letterpress! It’s such a delight to discuss the Halloween episode of Beverly Hills 90210 season five with them. Discussed on this episode: the Día de los Muertos movie Coco, the podcast Running From Cops, and Courtney Stodden’s sexy pumpkin patch photoshoot, about which the Daily Mail notes, “The pair were eventually asked to leave the patch by security after they received several complaints from members of the public who found Courtney's attire offensive and her behaviour of a sexual nature.”
This episode is brought to you by The Cocoa Fondue Show. Watch the short before June 24 to help it win the Amazon Studios All Voices Film Festival!
