Today's Episode

Hey everybody, so unfortunately the station is closed today for Cesar Chavez Day, which means we weren't able to get in to do our My So-Called Life episode with Chloe Holtzman and Carly Dimitriou. However, we will be back on the air next week with My So-Called Life, take 2. And luckily, Chloe Holtzman has agreed to come back and talk with us. Very sorry for the inconvenience, as an apology here's a little My So-Called Life clip for you all.

Get ready for our My So-Called Life episode!

So, today's been a big day for past shows but I'd like to take a moment to look towards the future. Tomorrow's show is all about the short-lived 90s high school drama My So-Called Life. Here's a little video of some of the best Angela Chase insightful quotes if you're unfamiliar with the show or just in the mood for a little So-Called nostalgia.

Podcast of Episode 7: The Music Show

It's been a big day for podcasting! When you're finished catching up on our Britcom talk, take a listen to our two-hour music episode and hear our favorite in songs we found through television and movies. Maybe you'll hear something you like.
*Note: this podcast has been modified slightly from the original broadcast.

And if two straight hours of Talor and me isn't good enough, try out our official Watchin' Stuff drinking game as you enjoy this podcast.

Podcast of Episode 6: Britcoms!

Hear ye, hear ye, our podcast of episode 6, Britcoms, is finally up and running. We are very sorry for the delay. So, if you're looking to fulfill your British sitcom fix or you just have a spare hour, please listen and enjoy. And for those unfamiliar with British shows, we also offer quite a few wonderful British tunes, mostly of the punk/new wave variety. I promise you, it's a good time.
*Note: this podcast has been modified slightly from its original broadcast.

And if you fancy a pint or two with your Bricom talk, try your hand at our official Watchin' Stuff drinking game as you listen.
Hey guys,

I know it's been a while, and for that I apologize. For the last couple of weeks, Kait and I had been a little worried that our previous few shows had not been recorded. This would have been catastrophic, as I know many of you listen to us on podcast. But today (which happens to be my birthday), I got the best present imaginable. THE SHOWS WERE RECORDED! This means that for all of you who have been waiting: We got British Comedy week, and our special Two-Hour Music Extravaganza!

Kait will be posting them later today, so get excited!

To make up for my long absence:

Watchin' Stuff updates of the week

Hello everyone, hope you're all having a good week so far. Well, first, some bad news, it looks like due to some archival issues we might never see a podcast of our Britcom episode. Hopefully somehow the recording will appear at some point, but the outlook isn't so good for that one at the moment. Though it is sad, we here at Watchin' Stuff are looking into the future instead of dwelling on the past and we can't wait to bring you our 2 hour music extravaganza this Friday. Ever discovered a song through a television show or movie? We certainly have and we'll be playing several of them on the air for you this week, so be sure to tune in. In the meantime, check out this clip of my favorite musical usage in a TV show I've come across in quite a while.
