Episode 59: About Time

IT’S MARATHON MAY! In our now-annual tradition, we choose a theme for the month of May — this year we’re watching time travel romances! We’re kicking it off with About Time, one of Katie’s favorites. In this episode, we find long-forgotten pieces of pop culture, wonder why there are so few women time travelers, and discuss what we’d do if we could relive moments of our past.

In an unprecedented turn of events, while we were recording our next Tatumverse episode, it was announced that our beloved Channing and Jenna are splitting up. In this special minisode Wesleigh breaks the news to Katie, and you get to hear our live reactions.

Episode 54: Easter Parade


Put on your Easter bonnet, with all the fills upon it, Katie and Wesleigh are talking Easter Parade! In honor of the holiday weekend we watch the 1948 musical featuring Fred Astaire and Judy Garland. In this episode we talk friend zones, symbolic Easter pastries, Katie does at least 5 accents, Wesleigh might be a vampire (!?) and we have a very visceral reaction to THAT KISS.
