In this episode, we play tour guide as you start down the path of your next binge watch journey. Taking a page from the podcast What Should I Read Next and our good friend Anne Bogel, listeners share the shows they love and the shows they hate, and we help them solve the age-old question of “what should I watch next?” Not only do we recommend shows that share a common thread, but we also give them each an off-beat recommendation or two.
- If you’re here, LOOK AT YOU looking at our revamped show notes!
- In this episode, you’ll get 70+ recommendations, but if that’s not enough, check out our list of green lights.
- (We won’t link Tila Tequila’s hate speech. Let’s just keep letting her fade from the pop culture lexicon.)
- Happyland Creative is re-doing our website and we are pumped about being your go-to source for content recommendations.
