We’re reeling from the rave-turned-lesbian-house-fire, and so are Kelly and Steve. Luckily, we’re joined again by Julia Cunningham, morning DJ on SiriusXMU, and soon-to-be-cohost of the new entertainment interview series The Jess Cagle Show. Charitable organizations discussed on this episode: Kids in Need of Defense, RAICES. Listen to Julia’s previous episode, season three’s “Back in the High Life Again.”
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.”
