Your road map to this week's entertainment-themed podcast:
00:40 Dancing with the Stars: It was Disney Night, so we got wigs, jungle creatures, and one slow waltz of awkwardness, plus said goodbye to Sasha (the star, not the pro). Mentioned: Maks's partnership with ice dancer Meryl Davis (fun fact: Lindsey Stirling from this season plays the violin to accompany Meryl and Maks in the first dance in this video).
18:15 The West Wing: We finally kick off season 4 with "20 Hours in America, Part 1," and the accompanying West Wing Weekly podcast has a charming interview with guest star John Gallagher, Jr. Mentioned: "Stop. Pooping." (This really does make sense in context).
29:48 Challenge Round: Junebug: Amy Adams also guest stars in this week's West Wing, so Terri challenged Catherine to watch this 2005 indie movie in which Adams has a memorable, and garrulous, role.
For next week, Catherine challenged Terri to read the book A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan. We'll discuss that, plus Dancing with the Stars and part 2 of West Wing's "20 Hours in America."
Join parenting and education writers Terri Mauro, Catherine Holecko, and Nicole Eredics for daily chats on parenting teens and young adults (and a little TV-watching too).
