Weekly Roundup: Celebrity Charity Auction, “Only Murders in the Building,” DWTS Preview, “Pockets” and “Linty,” and What Moms Need to Know
On our latest weekly roundup, we checked out a celebrity charity auction on eBay. Proceeds are going to support striking actors and writers, but we think the potential for awkwardness is rather high.
What we're watching: On Only Murders in the Building, "Sitzprobe" (episode 8), set at a rehearsal for Oliver's musical, was fittingly filled with drama. The highlight was Charles successfully singing the "Pickwick Triplets" patter song, which you can view on YouTube (earworm alert!!). You can also check out the lyrics on Mashable or listen on Spotify.
We also previewed the 32nd season of Dancing with the Stars, which is set to premiere tonight (September 26), but is in danger of being disrupted by the aforementioned WGA strike.
Catherine's library find this week is a two-fer: For adults, we're intrigued by a niche nonfiction title called Pockets: An Intimate History of How We Keep Things Close by Hannah Carlson. And for kids, who wouldn't want to read about an anthropomorphic ball of lint called Linty? That's Linty: A Pocketful of Adventure by Mike Shiell.
In the archives, we revisit episodes in which we discussed parenting in the past vs. the present (September 28, 2020), what our kids do and don't tell us (September 25, 2019), and what reality shows we'd want to be on (September 26, 2017).
We'll be back with a new episode next Tuesday. Our TV watch will cover S3 E9 of Only Murders in the Building (“Thirty”) and the first episode of Dancing with the Stars, if it happens. If you miss hearing from us every single day, the archives await you!
