We didn’t quite get to the Beverly Hills, 90210 episode “Radio Daze” in last week’s episode, but please do make sure to listen to our special interview with actor Paul Johansson about his time playing John Sears on 90210. So this week, we are joined once again by Josh Stewart (1, 2) to finally get freaky at the freshman pool party / dance contest. Plus, we introduce a new segment for our time at California University!

John Sears himself, Paul Johansson joins “The Blaze with Lizzie and Kat” podcast to talk about his career from Parker Lewis Can’t Lose to One Tree Hill, Mad Men, Once Upon a Time, and now writing, directing, and more. “Blaze” all-star (1, 2) and pop culture sommelier Josh Stewart joins as guest co-host.
This week’s episode has been postponed to Thursday night so we could schedule the recording with our guest, but we’re sure that it’ll be worth the wait! For now here are some great tidbits from our teen hotline, and a flashback to the Fox promo for this episode of Beverly Hills, 90210.
Since we didn’t even go to a school with a Greek system, we recruited USC Gender Studies professor and pop culture expert Karen Tongson to join us on the show to discuss the Beverly Hills, 90210 episode where Andrea meets an anti-Semitic sorority president! 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.

We took a special look back at the high school years of Beverly Hills 90210 with the series’ executive producer Charles Rosin, counting down his top ten behind-the-scenes tidbits about the season three finale episode, “Commencement,” and answering listener questions!
We had the opportunity to interview Lindsay Blake, the genius behind the film and television location hunting site I Am Not A Stalker. We’ve referenced her work numerous times when learning more about where our favorite Beverly Hills, 90210 scenes were filmed, and it was so much fun to freak out together over how much we’re all obsessed with the show.
For a super-sized look back at the high school seasons of Beverly Hills 90210, hosts Lizzie and Kat break down the two-part graduation episode of the series, reminiscing about past guests and diving deep into what made this show so special.

Who better to discuss this episode of Beverly Hills 90210 than its director … oh, and the series star Jason Priestley!

Jason is also currently starring in the series Private Eyes and Raising Expectations, with Molly Ringwald.
