I want to live like normal people, I want to sleep with normal people, normal people like you.

No wait that was common people.

This week Steve and Chris watch a new Hulu show (airing on BBC 1 overseas) Based off a book it's another look at young love, teenagers in high school. This time in Ireland.

It's a fascinating exercise to see the tropes we're so used to in America be placed in a different culture. 

Come join us for the ride, and learn about Gaelic Football!

The podcast returns to a happier time, a gentler time, a time with less stress and worry, when the economy was in shambles and America was engulfed in a never ending war. 

Oh the 70's, what we wouldn't give to experience a different oil shock. But all that said, Mrs. America is pretty cool. Taking a look at a side of the 70's we don't get to see much, the beginnings of the modern gender equity movement. A deeper dive into the Equal Rights amendment, something you only got a paragraph about in your history book (if that!).

Plus some non pandemic 30 second pitches and crossovers!

This week a subject Steve knows pretty well, Carole Baskin! Yes Steve has been a visitor to the Big Cat Rescue. Since we're all in quarantine, the episode one podcast had to jump on the bandwagon and talk about what everyone else is. Tiger King!

After about 35 minutes of Covid-19 and Tiger King talk we dig into our back catalog and discuss how some shows we've done in the past would treat their quarantine episode. Inspired by, and referencing the great vulture article: https://www.vulture.com/2020/04/if-i-wrote-a-coronavirus-episode.html

We're back in the Freeform extended cinematic universe. This time with witches.. and alternate history... and wait how do the Fosters and Grownish fit in?

Regardless, despite there being a pandemic going on, new shows are being released, and Steve and Chris are here to talk about them... just socially distanced of course.

Enjoy, let us know what you think and how you're doing through all this. Episodeonepod@gmail.com
