Inspired by this cute story about the singer Walker Hayes buying blow-up Christmas decorations for each of his six kids, we talked about what we'd splurge on for our families if we had the opportunity.
Nicole follows @mobile_mama, a reviewer who evaluates cars based on their mom-friendliness, on TikTok. That inspired us to complain about our own cars, and suggest the features that would make us happier in our vehicles.
On our entertainment-themed Round 2 this week: Since we've professed interested in both musical theatre and anything Lin-Manuel Miranda does, we had to watch tick, tick ... BOOM! on Netflix. It's a movie adaption of Jonathan Larson's autobiographical show of the same name, and Andrew Garfield is captivating as Larson. Get out your Broadway bingo cards when you watch, because the cameos come fast and furious. Next week: Ted Lasso, season 2, episodes 1 ("Goodbye, Earl") and 2 ("Lavender").
Since our offspring grew up in the olden days before kids' podcasts were a thing (and neither were moms' podcasts), we talk about what shows they would have been into--or the messages we'd have wanted to deliver via podcast. Mentioned: The Wondery network's podcasts for kids.

This Thanksgiving week, we're checking in on our discussions from past years to see how our objects of gratitude have changed, or not. Today, we travel back to the fall of 2019, when we had no idea what was about to hit us.
Thank you, as always, for listening, this week and every week.
On this week's entertainment-themed Round 2, we wrapped up season 1 of both of the series we've been catching up on. Ted Lasso's "The Hope That Kills You" was every bit as bittersweet and heartwarming as the rest of the season, and we're looking forward to season 2.
On Only Murders in the Building, "Open and Shut" finally brought a resolution to the mystery, along with two classic TV/movie tropes: the law of economy of characters (ah, so that's whodunit) and the fallacy of the talking killer (ah, that's how they done it). For this one, we may not be back in for season 2.
Next week: Before diving into season 2 of Ted Lasso, we'll take a detour to New York City of the late 1980s and watch Tick... Tick... BOOM, the autobiographical musical from Rent's Jonathan Larson, on Netflix.
