Episode 41: Blue valentines

Click MeIt’s Valentine’s Day week. In honor of the holiday, I bring you a podcast filled with as much bile and cynicism as I can possibly pack into 30 minutes. I begin by answering a reader question about the sad death of Philip Seymour Hoffman, and go downhill from there. Even my staunchly sunny co-host Baby Vegas gets a little wilted toward the second half.

But it’s fun listening! I swear! Especially if you’re a fan of Orphan Black. (If you’re hoping that actors such as Tatiana Maslany make more money for playing multiple roles, well, a listener wrote in asking that very question. And the answer is, again, sad.)

  • I dodge a barrage of flame from a listener who doesn’t understand why I can’t just believe everything Dylan Farrow says already.
  • I maul Baby Vegas in a Cage Match that pits a gnome-sized TV star against a Scissor Sister. 
  • And, of course, my 71-year-old dad, the world’s biggest Downton Abbey fan, is back, this time to rate the hotness of the ladies of the manor. (Fret not, fellow feminists: We'll be rating the men next week.)
