Good-bye Steven Spielberg Screening Room
Loving this podcast about two comedian friends talking about local SoCal super markets and abroad. They talk a lot of sh*t, but also go over the bizarre histories of Ralph's, Smart & Final and more. On paper it sounds like an utterly boring NPR podcast, but these two are just too funny and throw so much shade you have to listen.

GROCERIES with Erin Gibson and Bryan Safi

From the people who brought you Attitudes! comes GROCERIES, a new podcast about everything groceries: from cotton candy grapes to who Mary is and why she’s “gone crackers.” It’s the Internet’s (only) preeminent guide to the place we all buy food.

-Eight Months After Shuttering Their NYC Venue, Upright Citizens Brigade Closes L.A.’s Sunset Theater

The one one Franklin remains.

-Disneyland Cancels Its Annual Passholder Program Due to the Pandemic

Well, that sucks. 

Coming out April 12
