Welcome to Wekk 2.0. In our new format you can enjoy a lively discussion of recent news, books, and television in the first half, as well as some great recommendations for podcasts or websites you should know about. Then we’ll give some shout outs to listeners and in the second half we have a special Growing Up 70’s segment on Happy Days. Happy Days was a pivotal show for us. Between the Fonz, Howard and Marion, not to mention Richie Cunningham and the boys, this was an amazing show. We did record this before Erin Moran passed away. She was amazing as Joanie and her contribution was significant.
Quick rundown of the segments and what was discussed: Barbara Gordon Corner (Bill Bryson, Neil Gaiman) Get Smart (New Star Wars animation on You tube, The Originalist, Write Now Podcast) Broadcast News (stupid news) Friday Night Lights (Thank you to our listeners) Growing Up 70’s (Happy Days – starts at marker 28.27 if you want to skip right to that).
“Growing Up 70’s” is all about the television shows that shaped our youth. If you have ideas on what shows Kellie and Katy should cover, be sure to email them at firstname.lastname@example.org. The only requirement is that the show had to have first run episodes that aired in the 70’s.
