Your road map to this week's entertainment-themed podcast:
00:30 One Day at a Time: We continue season 2 with "To Zir with Love" and "Roots," which had a nice balance of Big Issues and Rita Moreno Zingers.
7:25 The West Wing: The season 4 episode "Privateers" also gave us one day at a time, with all sorts of problems for our heroes to take on in 18 hours. The West Wing Weekly podcast was full of good guests, including Ethel Beavers!
17:34 Challenge Round: Trophy Wife and Go On: Terri challenged Catherine to try the pilot episodes of these two "found family" shows, and she enjoyed them both. Next time a hole opens up in our busy viewing calendar, we'll continue with Trophy Wife (read a discussion of that term, and listen to the Nerdist podcast Terri mentioned).
For next week, though, we stick with One Day at a Time ("Locked Down" and "Work Hard, Play Hard") and The West Wing ("Angel Maintenance"). And Catherine challenges Terri to read But Enough About Me, a memoir about celebrity encounters from Jancee Dunn.
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).
