On today’s episode of the Cadillac Jack – My Second Act podcast, Caddy and Donna get into the backlash from the Taylor Swift/Ticketmaster pre-sale fiasco.

Donna opens a show with a funny story about a friend (who shall remain nameless) who fell asleep at the opera and ended up sitting in the handing cap spot. How did this come to be? Oh, and somehow we meander into the continued conversation about Caddy’s bedside manner again.

We start this Halloween episode with a recap of black cats, questionable costumes and 2 pm traffic. One question off the top - when did Halloween costumes become so… short? 

Then we take it to Esther and her two CEOs. Do you think we are doing too much for our kids? Can we fix it by asking them to stir the pancake batter? Cadillac and Donna Jack chime in.

As the Jack family continues to mourn the passing of Mr. Al, they’ve had some conversations about the afterlife, heaven, and many unanswerable questions. Like, who gets into Heaven and when you’re in, who do you hang out with? If you were divorced on Earth, do your kids still split time with each parent? Or, as Caddy suggests, is everyone just at peace with each other?
