"BEVERLY HILLS, CALIF. (JTA) — Back in the 1990s, the Fox series 'Beverly Hills, 90210' tackled eating disorders, gun safety, addiction and AIDS in a tone so earnest that it seems quaint in the era of  'Girls' and 'Broad City' — shows that eschew the moralizing of TV generations past."

Who didn’t love the exploits of Brenda and Brandon Walsh?  Together with their friends, Kelly, Dylan, Donna, David, and Steve they were a part of one of the biggest shows on TV, 'Beverly Hills, 90210.'

"To put a Hollywood spin on General Douglas MacArthur’s farewell address to Congress: Old TV shows never die, they just fade away into syndication. But in the case of Beverly Hills, 90210 , which ran for 10 seasons on Fox, the fadeout hasn’t been permanent. That’s because Katherine Spada ’08 and Elizabeth Leader ’09 have taken it upon themselves to revive it with their podcast 'The Blaze with Lizzie and Kat!'"

My Latest Interview with The Blaze with Lizzie and Kat

"A couple of months ago, I had the pleasure of sitting down for an interview with two of my favorite podcasters, Lizzie and Kat of The Blaze with Lizzie & Kat.  I’ve been following their show ever since the very beginning, so to finally meet them and hang out with them for a couple of hours was thrilling to say the least!  If you are at all interested in Beverly Hills, 90210 and aren’t already listening to their podcast, you need to be!  You can check it out here.  And you can listen to my interview here.  Spoiler – we talk about our shared loved for Brenda Walsh, the day the Grim Cheaper thwarted my chance at meeting D’Shawn Hardell, and that time I sent James Eckhouse a card (not joking – you can see a picture of it here)."

"The wildly popular Beverly Hills 90210-themed podcast in which two super fans dissect an episode of the hit 90s show. Listen to me call David, Billy; wax judgmental on Brenda slut shaming and confess that I had never seen a single episode of 90210, until now."

"By now you know we're total freaks for Beverly Hills 90210, so you can imagine the meltdown that occurred when we Tumbld across this 20 karat diamond of a podcast."

Favorite Podcasts

"The Blaze: One of the first podcasts I got hooked on. The Blaze with Lizzie and Kat goes through each episode of the original Beverly Hills 90210 and it’s pretty amazing."

The Blaze!

"When I was 6 years old I discovered a TV show wayyyyy too mature for me. It was Beverly Hills 90210 later to be referred to as 90210. I thought everyone on it was so cool and of course I had a major crush on Dylan McKay. Flashforward to about 2 months ago I discovered a podcast called, The Blaze with Lizzie and Kat. I was on the way to pick Andrew up from the airport and sat in my car listening to the first episode. I found myself laughing so hard I was crying and nodding my head. I kept thinking 'YES!' and 'OMG I thought the same thing!'”

"I downloaded a variety at the start of the year, but the one I’ve dedicated all of my 2016 driving time to thus far is a 90210 recap podcast called The Blaze With Lizzie and Kat. Each episode makes me giggle and reminisce on the show I likely watched within the last 24 hours. I don’t need to get into details of my 90210 fanfare, but let’s just say it’s been 25 years since the show first aired and it’s the only show I watch with regularity."

 

"Despite my resolve to listen to all downloaded podcasts before finding more, I couldn’t help myself when I discovered this gem of a show. I read about Lizzie and Kat’s The Blaze podcast in the comments section of a Vulture article and am addicted. Each show is devoted to an episode of my favorite guilty pleasure, Beverly Hills 90210. Lizzie, Kat, and their guests discuss the plot, analyze the fashions, and gossip about the show’s cast. They are hilarious, and in addition to all things 90210, their show is laced with tons of pop culture references from the ‘80s to today."
