“I am the one and only. You can’t take that away from me.”
Episode 023 —
In which Jasmine and Joy talk about pop culture and all things unique.
We dish about the latest news regarding Wu-Tang Clan’s single copy of their album Once Upon a Time in Shaolin and celebrity fans of the 52-hertz “loneliest whale.”
We debate what it means to be a one-hit wonder and gossip about what happens when famous folks—from Steve Martin to Anna Kendrick—try to make it big on the music charts.
We also chat about authors who have published one notable book versus those writers who create a series. Bonus trashy vampire tomes banter: Jasmine talks Twilight and Joy blabs about True Blood.
Plus—Don’t miss our peak rating of monologues from movies, plays, and books. Are you a closer? Or, are you Goonie?
We close out the episode with a frustrations-filled celebrity book chat about Late, Late at Night by Rick Springfield (2010).
