It had been, let’s see here, five months since Jenny and Ted had done a podcast. Five months. Is that right? Damn. They had some catching up to do. And they did, hitting on Master of None, New Girl, The People v. O.J. Simpson, Black-ish, The Grinder, The Mindy Project, Full Frontal With Samantha Bee, and Downton Abbey. Plus season 2 of the podcast Serial. All in under 35 minutes. Don’t try that at home.
It’s currently airing its 31st season, and most other reality TV has been stricken from their DVR, but for whatever reason, Jenny and Ted just can’t quit Survivor.

The Tribe has spoken.
Wet Hot American Summer was a movie that premiered in 2001, except that it looked like 1981. Until it was a TV series on Netflix that came out last week. But it still looks old. Confused? Jenny and Ted can help. Plus, spoiler alert: The Red Sox win.
Jenny, a longtime country music fan, and Ted, a longtime fan of Jenny, discuss the state of country music in the wake of Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton splitting up.

Jenny, Ted, and their good friend the Kid gather on the Foxes’ back porch over Fourth of July weekend to discuss UnREAL, a Lifetime original drama unlike any you’ve seen before. And that’s a good thing.
