Welcome to our bonus episode where we remember the life, talents, and career of Naya Rivera.  We reminisce about her time before Glee, her impact on the show, and more.  This is our space to chat, remember, and grieve, and we hope you can join us in this process.

Stay healthy.  Mask up.  Take care of each other.

Listener's Note: We recorded and edited this episode before Naya Rivera's tragic passing, which is why there's no commentary about it.  We held off posting as we took time to deal and gather our thoughts.

The next episode is "I Kissed a Girl," which heavily features Santana in an important storyline.  We're going to wait a little bit before recording it to give ourselves, and our listeners, a little more tim...

This is S3E5, "The First Time."  Power couples Kurt and Blaine and Finn and Rachel go down to bone town because the teenage director of their high school musical told them they should. Meanwhile, Dalton has a new Warbler in the form of one Sebastian Smythe, and the New Directions finally put on West Side Story without a single drama nerd's help.  It's not half bad, actually.

Hello!  Welcome to the first installment of what we're calling the Voices of Glee episodes.

We wanted to do this in recognition of the long history of Black/Brown/POC/Queer voices being excluded from the media.  From writers, directors, and producers, to journalists, commentators, and reviewers, and every position of influence and authority in between.

This episode is hosted by Monica, Ambre, and Julien - three more Glee fans w...

Is everyone remembering to lotion up after washing your hands 54x a day?

This is S3E3, "Asian F."  In an episode touted as "Mike Chang-centric," we've got Mercedes tired AF of standing in Rachel's spotlight, Kurt and Blaine competing for the same role but being cute AF doing so, and Mr. Schue meeting Emma's rude AF parents.  Also, Mike has parents!

We know times are strange right now, but are they as strange as an episode of Glee? (Yes, we're being facetious, the world is scary. STAY HOME.)
