This episode is the first of a new season, and my good friend—and friend of the show—Amanda White is here to talk with me about how sometimes, our first (pop culture) loves become our forever loves. We cover my long history of loving mysteries and her insistence on bonnets and survival stories. And hang in to the very end, because we also share some listeners’ first and forever pop culture loves. You won’t want to miss that!

More fun includes Amanda sharing her mental image of Patreon supporters with us, urging you all to become “rich old ladies” who support this podcast, and even though she later suggests I’m still using a VCR (which I am not), I bring her to actual tears of joy by agreeing to watch one of her very favorite TV shows of all time and record my reactions with her for a bonus episode for patrons. Or rich old ladies. We also discuss what Patreon supporters should be called, because “rich old ladies” and even “patrons” don’t seem nearly as fun as tater tots and French fries.

If all that crazy sounds like your idea of a good time, then you are in for a treat. Welcome back to The Couch!
