Episode 105: Won’t Your Me My Neighbor? With Hana Nobel

“Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” Many of us grew up with this daily invitation from Fred Rogers (Mr. Rogers) and its the fitting title of wonderful, moving new documentary about his work and show, Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood.

Managing NOT to cry during the course of recording, on this week’s episode, Alaia is joined by another big Mr. Rogers fan, Hana Nobel. We chat about why the movie earned a PG-13 rating, what we think about the upcoming biopic staring Tom Hanks and the surprising person missing from this new movie.

GO SEE IT (after you tune into this episode) and take a box of tissues with you.

Episode 101: The X-Files Season 10: Original Order

10/13 is a special date for fans of The X-Files. For those not in the know, its the birthday of creator Chris Carter, and the name of his production company (“I made this!”).

On this special day, Alaia is joined by two of her best X-Files loving friends, Faiza and Justin, to discuss Season 10 – with a twist. The series order was rearranged before the episodes aired. Before recording, the trio watched in the originally intended order.

You’ll learn how these three friends found the show and get insights into what impact watching S10 in the original order had (hint, its better).
