The past month or so has been full of new ventures and exciting projects. So full that I completely missed my website’s first birthday. It came and passed without any fanfare, which, in hindsight, feels exactly right. I’ll post a birthday bash when this site turns five. Or maybe three. I have a thing for numbers that don’t neatly multiply.
During this time, I have become a contributing writer at This Was TV, a site that explores and celebrates classic, vintage and retro television. It is a delight to collaborate with the fun, clever folks over there. I’ve also launched a new podcast with my dear friend Jacki.
The latter is a project long in the making. Jacks and I met eons ago in an improv class at a local community theatre. We grew up, and our friendship has continued over the years. Jacks was the one who introduced me to Gilmore Girls. I introduced her to Doctor Who. We dressed up as Dalek Caan and the TARDIS this past Halloween. (Guess which one was me.) If not for Jacki, I would have never watched Grey’s Anatomy or Buffy. (Thanks, dear.) And we were geeking out over The Hunger Games long before it was cool.
So we finally created an outlet for all our pop culture thoughts and conversations. We’ve thrown a little improv in because, well, we still can’t give that up. Hope you enjoy the podcasts as much as we love making them.
