Some things, as we know, are fate. We knew we could fill an entire podcast talking about #Beychella, especially since that performance – that performance – happened in the middle of the night, in what seems like it was a dream state. And especially after we had to take an unscheduled podcast break last week… we were ready. Full Story

If you know Hamilton, you know where we took our inspiration for the title of this week’s episode of Show Your Work. We are not, however, talking about Hamilton. We are talking about rooms – the rooms where Hollywood decisions are made, the rooms where plans are laid, the rooms where we work. Full Story

We begin this week’s podcast with a discussion about what Duana and Megan Fox have in common. There’s a scientific name for it too – even though the name sounds ridiculously made up and not real at all: Brachydactyly Type D, pronounced “bracky-dact-ily”. Come ON!  From there, we move to Encino Man, Brendan Fraser. Full Story

We’ve now gone from $218 million domestically over the 4 day long weekend to an estimated $235 million, adjusted a couple of hours ago. So of course we’re talking about Black Panther this week on Show Your Work. Full Story

And she came up with it off the top of this week’s episode of Show Your Work, during a discussion about my Ma’s annual Chinese zodiac and feng shui forecasts. Many of you have written over the last couple of weeks about the signs of the zodiac and their corresponding elements and why the Squawking Chicken’s list doesn’t necessarily match up to what you may have seen elsewhere online. Full Story

Show Your Work: Oprah the actor…and the voice

As in her actual voice. Somehow a discussion about Oprah Winfrey, actor, became a conversation about how women’s voices a judged – like the sound of them, whether or not they’re too high, low, squeaky, or deep.
