The spectacle, the magnificence, the sh*t show that was the 2015 Academy Awards. Why did Neil Patrick Harris miss the mark as host? What was with all those political speeches? And John Travolta… Plus everyone’s first gigs and music recommendations.

With Wynter Mitchell, Oliver Wang, Margaret Wappler and host Guy Branum.

This week we’re all about 50 Shades, Jupiter Ascending and SNL at 40.

We’ll have a conversation about social media in which Guy explains how it can tickle the “witch-hunty part of your brain” and finish up with a selection of everyone’s jams of the moment.

With Wynter Mitchell, Oliver Wang, Margaret Wappler and host Guy Branum.

We’re all about the Grammys this week, with opinions on Beyonce, Beck, Madonna and awards in general.

Plus, which books have influenced the team most significantly? And we share our current top jams.
