Episode 11: Brigadoon


Pie on a windowsill, this episode is amazing! For this week's Viewing Party we decided it was time for a musical, and dug up a classic from Wesleigh's childhood, Brigadoon. This sci-fi film masquerading as a Broadway period piece inspired discussions on sensory deprivation tanks, flirt dancing, grandmas, and Doctor Who. And in our favorite bit to date, Katie learns that Wesleigh is not immune to the power of forearms.
