Joining us for the original Fyre Fest—the Beverly Hills, 90210 episode where Steve Sanders Management sets a rave party ablaze—is the multi-talented Mickey Keating! Mickey is a full-time contributor to Instinct Magazine, and his debut short horror film Daddy’s Girl is available to watch online at Crypt TV. More importantly, he’s a burgeoning game show and talk show prodigy, and you can watch his appearances on Joker’s Wild with Snoop Dogg, and The Wendy Williams Show. His book Paused is available on Amazon.
We are thrilled to discuss this unforgettable episode with Andy Kamenetzky, who originally joined us for the season two episode, “A Competitive Edge.” Andy is a sports reporter for ESPNLA 710, and he and his brother Brian together host the Kamenetzky Podcast. So, that makes him the perfect guest to analyze the gameplay in the KEΓ House flag football tournament at California University—just kidding, the trippy journey through Dylan’s psyche has always made this Andy’s favorite episode of the series.

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.”

It’s 2am, Condors, and DJ David Silver can’t be in the studio tonight, so your gals Lizzie and Kat are stepping in to cover his graveyard radio shift.

Karen’s cultural study of Los Angeles’ sprawl, Relocations: Queer Suburban Imaginaries, is available on Amazon. She can also be heard as a guest host of the Pop Rocket podcast, and has contributed to the latest issue of the food magazine Lucky Peach.
