It’s our FIFTIETH episode! We’re so excited to be joined by Ashley York, the director of the Netflix documentary Tig and the forthcoming So Help You God. Ashley brings an incredible level of intellect and sensitivity to our discussion of this episode of Beverly Hills 90210 which focuses on the plight of the small business owner, a subject every teen drama should cover.

Lizzie recorded a special on-location interview with Matthew Laurance, the former actor known best as David’s father, Dr. Mel Silver, who currently works as a sports reporter in Lexington, Kentucky.
